The Take sees a trio of New York hardcore veterans combining with the idea of putting the punk back into hardcore, going back to their roots while letting out a strong Oi or two. Comprised of Scott Roberts (The Spudmonsters, Biohazard), Will Shepler (Madball, Agnostic Front), and Carlos Congote (Royal Hounds, Legion 76), The Take are fresh off the release of their debut Self Titled full length album, and are quickly finding their way into mosh pits and pubs all over with powerful anthemic tunes
Born out of the desire to just enjoy playing and making music, the group was a long distance project between Will Shepler and Scott Roberts who spent a few years crafting the tracks found on the S/T album. Swapping recordings online or travelling when able, the group originally planned to include Craig Setari of Sick Of It All, but began to move forward when schedules were unable to match up.
The group would eventually recruit Carlos Congate on bass, finally rounding out the band, and allowing them to start playing shows and touring, bringing their style of hardcore punk to all the blue collar fans of the style all over.
Fresh off a tour of the Netherlands, Scott Robert’s joins the DTP to discuss how he was brought into The Take, what it was like to finally write with no direction again, and the bands full length self titled debut album!
