AMBITIONS was formed in 2005 with only two goals
in mind: to have fun and to create music that was a
departure from the current music scene. The foundation
of the band began as current WITH HONOR guitarists
Jay and Jeff Aust started jamming with Jay on drums
and Jeff on guitar. They would soon bring in WITH
HONOR drummer John Ross and then the songwriting
took off as they wrote and recorded their first demo.
With the help of friend and producer Greg Thomas,
the group completed the No Limits demo which was
well-received throughout the punk/hardcore community.
The band recruited good friends Matt Fox and Matt
Fletcher (of SHAI HULUD fame) and began playing
shows in the Northeast in early 2006. On September
19, 2006, AMBITIONS will release their EP entitled
Question on Think Fast! Records. Question is an
impressive debut the likes of which the punk/hardcore
scene hasn't seen in many years. Lyrically and
musically, AMBITIONS attempts to tackle themes of
introspection and self-exploration. The band's music,
according to vocalist Jay Aust, is about "coming to
terms with the disparity between our youthful
aspirations and the reality of the world."
AMBITIONS strives to break through the genre
barriers that plague the current punk/hardcore scene
by playing honest music that they enjoy, without
limiting themselves to any one scene's constraints.
