Between The Wars were a short-lived New Jersey band who featured Ensign frontman Tim Shaw, as well as former Thursday guitarist Bill Henderson. They were known to blend influences from past and present hardcore and punk acts including the post-hardcore grooves of Quicksand and the metallic crunch of bands like 108. Between The Wars were truly a breath of fresh air in a scene that so often recycles the same three chords. Pastepunk called them "a throttling exhibition in powerful metallic hardcore with thunderous guitars and Shaw's instantly gripping bellicose yell." In 2006, PunkNews.org called Between The Wars "one of the most promising hardcore acts from New Jersey in recent memory". Despite two releases on Think Fast! to great press, the band rarely played shows, cementing them as one of New Jersey's best kept secrets.
