Pain doesn’t just show up in our lives for no reason. It’s a sign that something in our life needs to change.

REVHQ FUN FACT
When you hear the name Walter Schreifels, you can’t help but
think of New York hardcore since so many of the bands he’s
played in over the years helped shape the genre. But at one
point in the late ’80s, Walter was playing in so many bands that
he ended up recording with not one, not two, not three, but four
of the seven bands that appeared on the “Together” 7”
compilation. Here’s the lineup:
1) Warzone, being credited as “Walter Righteous” (bass);
2) Youth of Today (bass);
3) Gorilla Biscuits (guitar); and
4) Though the liner notes credit Carl as the bassist for the
Supertouch track “Searching For The Light,” the recording was
actually done by Walter before Carl joined the band.

As twins with bowl haircuts, Aaron and Bryce shared one baseball-card collection, played all games side by side and slept in a room with identical pairs of fixtures and furniture pieces. Every morning, Bryce would take a shower and then leave the water on for Aaron to follow. They were so close, always understanding each other in such a primary way, that when they communicated, other people couldn’t always make out what they were saying. (In the band, this is known as the twins’ “pillow talk.”) Today, though they live in separate Brooklyn houses, their bond remains so intense that when they return to Ohio with their girlfriends, they would rather the four of them sleep (platonically) in their two childhood beds than take advantage of the guest room.
