Hit the Switch is a melodic thrash punk band formed in 2003 by high school friends Matt Hawks and Jerry Fenn.
They recorded their first demo with Dave Swanson and TJ Rivera at Love Juice studios. Followed by numerous local shows and releasing an acoustic EP, as well as their first LP entitled “Spread the Disease”. The band then signed to Nitro Records and released “Domestic Tranquillity & Social Justice” in
2006. Hitting the road with multiple tours throughout the Continental U.S. Canada and Europe, supporting legendary bands Strung Out, the Vandals, NOFX, Authority Zero, Guttermouth and many others. The
band gained momentum and went full force when they released their third LP titled “Observing Infinities” which was an evolution of the bands signature sound. Throughout the next few years, the band toured relentlessly, and added drummer A.J. Condosta of Jugheads Revenge, I Hate Kate, Darling Thieves and Voodoo Glow Skulls to the roster. Matt Also joined forces with Pour Habit (FAT Records) becoming the bands new guitarist. HTS went on to release a cover of  Pink Floyd’s “Welcome to the Machine” and the original single track “Retroactive” in 2011. Now, after a 7 year stretch, the band have returned
with “Entropic”. A fast paced explosion of thrashing melodies, with a lyrical emphasis on post societal decay, and civilizations collective indifference. “Entropic” was released on Bird Attack
Records on September 25th 2018.
