“I’m gonna run until my heart stops beating, blood stops bleeding.” These lyrics have become the proudly-sung anthem for the Detroit alternative-rock band Beta Camp.
Anyone who has been to a Beta Camp show knows these boys put their heart and soul into every note they sing and play. “Growing up and playing music together has allowed us to form a brother-like bond. It’s allowed us to be super open with what we write. We want people to feel what we do when we write and perform live, even if those feelings are something deep and personal.” says Hunter Lukas, the band’s songwriter and frontman. “We wanted to capture the raw passion from our live shows and put it on a record so listeners could take those moments home with them.”
When it came time to record, Beta Camp searched for the right producer for months. They ended up choosing Ace Enders (of The Early November) at The Lumberyard Recording in New Jersey. Ace was a big believer in the band’s vision and helped them craft their debut album Violent Honey. The album was released in September of 2017 with a packed show at The Loving Touch in Ferndale, Michigan.
