New Jersey metalcore bruisers SENTINELS sign to Sharptone Records, unleash blistering new single INERTIA.
Champions of metalcore Sharptone Records have welcomed New Jersey based progressive metalcore band SENTINELS to the label’s ever-growing roster of trailblazing acts. In celebration of the partnership, SENTINELS have released a diabolical new song titled INERTIA from their forthcoming, debut album to be announced at a later date.
Commenting on the signing drummer Dave Rucki says:
“We are beyond excited to announce our signing with Sharptone Records. The day the label launched, we knew that if there was a home for us, it was now realized. To have them backing us, and to even be writing this now is surreal. ‘Inertia’ perfectly represents the level of aggression we aim for in our music. With Josh’s voice, we were able to elevate that aggression and further convey the more emotional moments in the song. ‘Inertia’ is about suicidal thoughts and confiding in somebody close only to be told “that’s selfish”, then deciding whether to go through with it, or prove that you can overcome it to appease those around you. We have been a band since 2012, but now solidifying our lineup with Josh on vocals, we can confidently say, this is what we had always envisioned for Sentinels”.
Vocalist Josh Hardiman adds:
“Sharptone, Sentinels, and the team behind the scenes have taken a huge risk on me, the gravity of which I most certainly feel, but the difference between this weight and my burdens since past, is that now with each passing day I become stronger and more alive. More and more equipped to handle and weather new storms for now I am living a life that I want to have gifted to me by those who believed in me. I will not fail with their continued support. This is a new beginning and I hope that everyone who listens to “Inertia” want to embark on this new chapter with us“.
The New Jersey quintet: Thomas Cardone (guitar), Chris Dombrowski (guitar), Danny Cruz (bass, vocals), Dave Rucki (drums, vocals), and Josh Hardiman (vocals) cut their teeth with EPs “Idylls” (2013) and “World Divide” (2016) and cemented their signature sound with 2019’s “Unsound Recollections” which featured fan favorite tracks “Elysium” and “Déjà Vu”. Having proven themselves time and time again with boundless technical musicianship and dynamic songwriting, SENTINELS set their sights on conquering the metalcore scene with their hotly anticipated debut full-length that’s due out later this year from SharpTone Records.

Sentinels – Inertia Lyrics:
I’ve been reaching out, but the shadows drag me down
Like a shroud, they suffocate all in relentless doubt
We all have a cross to bear, but the weight of this burden is far too much to compare
Close my eyes, and begin to drift away
Far away from aversion, that had lead me astray
I’ve drowned in dismay
All on my own, I threw it all away
On my own
I watch from the other side of the glass
Where I stare and waste away in time that has passed
All thoughts were unsupported
Dreams reduced to smoke
A life deemed unimportant
So turn away and go as I choke
Realize this could end in a moment
But I have been void of choice
There’s no life in this prison, but to succumb to these walls
We are not the same, you and I
By will and drive, I will be defined
This life is a test
One I’ll let play out in jest
For it has cost the price of all my self-respect
Disconnect all the parts that kept this in tact
Pray for a soul to keep while I beg for inner peace
Selfishness has stripped from me, the gift of eternal sleep
We are not the same, you and I
