Secrets Is Soo Underrated!!!!

I’ve been a fan of Secrets since their demo they released in 2011, and I’ve been fan ever since. Everything That Got Us Here si their 3rd album as a band, and 3rd with Tom Denney as producer (with Andrew Wade as well). With another lineup change (they lose their bass player and former screamer Aaron), I was excited and a little scared of where they would go, but I’m glad to say that this album does not disappoint for any Secrets fans. Vocally, Richard sounds just as great as ever, and steps up to be lead vocals this time around, where as Wade (the new screamer) takes more of a backseat. This album puts more emphasis on singing than in previous releases. But Wade is a solid replacement for both Xander and Aaron. My only complaint si that I wash there was at least one song where Wade was able to tear it up, like they did on previous releases with their singers, but, I’m not complaining. Richard is easily the best signer in this genre. Lyrically, there’s lot here on relationships, past traumas, inner demons, rising above the hate, etc… Typical for the genre, but it works well, and is very relatable. Instrumentally, the band have some really catchy hooks and good riffs, with a few good breakdowns. In my opinion, this is not as good as Fragile Figures was, but it’s still a solid entry into their discography. I just wish they had at least 2 more songs. This album feels too short. MY favorite tracks include: “Learn to Love”, “Left Behind”, “In Loving Memory”, “Turn the Page”, “Rise Up”, and “The Man That Never Was”. Nut all the songs are good. There is no filler. Do yourself a favor and pick up this album and support this band. I hope they continue making music for years to come. They write some catchy stuff!!!!!


Oh yeahhh.

This album is sick. Secrets is so freaking good.


Pretty cool

I love the vocals. Left Behind has a great hook.


Based out of San Diego, California, post-hardcore band Secrets rose to national success with the release of their 2012 debut, The Ascent, and its 2013 follow-up, Fragile Figures, both of which made solid showings on the Billboard charts. Boasting two vocalists and a heavy, aggressive sound, the band's career has been marked by a series of lineup shifts.

Formed in 2010 by singer Xander Bourgeois, guitarists Richard Rogers and Michael Sherman, bassist Marc Koch, and drummer Joe English, the band's punishing sound found them signing to Rise Records just a year after getting started. Secrets made their debut in 2012 with The Ascent, which climbed to the number three spot on the Billboard Heatseekers chart. That same year, the band would see Koch replaced by Michael Owens. The membership changes continued into the next year after Bourgeois announced he was leaving to focus on staying sober. Author & Finisher vocalist Aaron Melzer stepped in to take up lead vocal duties, and in the summer of 2013, the band released their sophomore album, Fragile Figures, which peaked at number 59 on the Billboard Top 200 chart. The band's third studio long player, Everything That Got Us Here, saw the departure of Melzer and the arrival of new vocalist Wade Walters. Released in December 2015, it would prove to be their last release for the Rise label. A new deal was struck in 2017 with Made in the Shade Records, who released Secrets' self-titled fourth outing the following year.
