HANG TIGHT is a punk rock band from new jersey consisting of Pete Zengerle, Bill Cardella, Montana Voegtlin, and Juan Ramirez. The band's nostalgic sound reminiscent of "Tony Hawk Pro Skater" soundtracks mixed with new wave surf rock, blends together seamlessly to give them their unique sound.
Their debut ep "Grind" which was released via Standby Records charted #1 Billboard Heatseekers and #48 top new artists. Grind was recorded at singer Pete Zengerles' home studio and mixed by James Paul Wisner who has worked with iconic acts such as Paramore, New Found Glory, and Underoath. Although Hang Tight takes heavy influences from hardcore and punk, their main emphasis is making sure the songwriting is polished and well thought out. Since release "Grind" has been receiving many great reviews.
"GRIND IS A RECORD I AM INTRIGUED TO HEAR LIVE, A BAND THAT BUILDS THE ENERGY PERFECTLY WITH CHORUSES THAT PULL YOU IN KICKING AND SCREAMING, MY ONLY ISSUE IS THAT I WANT MORE FROM THIS BAND." -9/10 THINKING LYRICALLY
"EXPECT HANG TIGHT TO BUST OUT OF THE NEW JERSEY MUSIC SCENE IN A VAST AND EPIC WAY, ESPECIALLY IF THE GRIND EP IS INDICATIVE OF GREATER GLORIES AHEAD" - HIGHWIRE DAZE
Hang Tight has opened as direct support for We The Kings and is currently touring relentlessly in support of their debut ep Grind.
