“Hardcore used to be followed by the word punk and that’s what
we originally wanted to create”. What emerged is a refreshing mix
of punk, oi, hardcore and rock & roll with melodic yet raspy
vocals and a new approach to underground music.
THE TAKE was founded by famed NYHC drummer Will Shepler
(formerly of Agnostic Front, Madball) and Sick Of It All bassist
Craig Setari (also formerly Agnostic Front), together with longtime
friend, guitarist/vocalist Scott Roberts (formerly of Biohazard,
The Spudmonsters, Bloodclot!), who had just left
Biohazard only weeks before. It was perfect timing for Scott as
he wanted to move on and create something new from the
ground up with complete creative freedom and passion.
Soon after, Scott and Will began working on what would
become THE TAKE’s self-titled debut record. Craig was busy
with Sick Of It All’s hectic touring schedule so Scott recruited
friend and oi veteran Carlos Congote (formerly
of 45 Adapters, Urban Noise) to complete the lineup.
THE TAKE’s self-titled debut LP (engineered, mixed and produced
by Scott Roberts) was released worldwide on German label
Demons Run Amok on June 28th 2019. The album debuted at
#2 on the Coretex Weekly Top 20 and moved up to #1 the next
week. The album sold out shortly after. Four months later, the
album is still in the top 10.
The first and second press of THE TAKE’s self-titled LP sold out
within weeks and the third press has been released in October.
The band is monmentarily on their second European tour, during
which they share the stage with Agnostic Front and Cock Sparrer.
