About For the Win

Borrowing their name from a common American sports phrase, San Diego pop-punk unit For the Win play and act like a team. Childhood friends Kyle Christensen (vocals) and Giovanni Moreno (bass) grew up playing baseball together, forming their close-knit band in 2010 with guitarists Lee Chambers and Matt Jimenez and drummer Omar Nieto. While their 2012 EP, Break the Ice, leaned more heavily on an aggressive metalcore style, their next few releases were almost entirely acoustic. A deal was struck with Artery Records in 2014 to release their debut album, More Than You Know, a muscular blend of bright melody and guitar brawn. Eventually switching to Chicago label Victory Records, For the Win followed up in 2017 with Heavy Thoughts. ~ Timothy Monger
