The five-piece San Diego emo/alternative group My American Heart burst onto the scene with their crunchy debut album, The Meaning in Makeup (Warcon Entertainment), in the fall of 2006. At the time of its release, none of the group members was above the age of 18, but that didn't stop them from executing three national tours and landing a coveted slot on the 2005 Warped Tour. Vocalist Larry Soliman, guitarist/vocalist Jeremy Mendez, guitarist/vocalist Jesse Barrera, bassist Dustin Hook, and drummer Steven Oira polished up their sonics with the help of producer Sal Villanueva (Taking Back Sunday) and engineer Matt Squire (Northstar, Thrice), solidifying the group's dense and gritty brand of earnest rock. Taking cues from their emo heroes, My American Heart strives to peel away the superficial facades of social acceptance and champion the cult of the real -- a cathartic, honest, and muscular approach to the genre. ~ J.
