About Forfeit: Forfeit is a band birthed by the inspiration that its members drew from the legacy of their local scene. Having all been in previous hardcore outfits, Steve Hornyak, Ben Shaw, and TomDom felt a strong pull towards the roots of Syracuse hardcore. In 2007 the group started writing and playing songs in that vein together as Forfeit. That same year they recorded a demo at More Sound Studio. The following year brought the addition of both Brian McGee and Pat Benson to fill out the lineup and the sonic void.
