A post-hardcore supergroup with a muscular attack and emo leanings, Fiddlehead is staffed by former members of Massachusetts punk outfit Have Heart and U.K. band Basement. After releasing a 2014 EP the Boston-based group recorded what they assumed would likely be a one-off project in 2018's cathartic Springtime and Blind LP. Somewhat surprised by the enthusiastic response from fans, Fiddlehead decided to carry on and recorded their sophomore album, Between the Richness, in 2021.

Following the dissolution of his previous band, Have Heart, singer Patrick Flynn began writing songs with his roommate, guitarist Alex Dow. Former Basement guitarist Alex Henery soon came aboard along with Flynn's former bandmate Shawn Costa on drums. Writing in a post-hardcore style reminiscent of '80s emo, Fiddlehead debuted on Lockin Out with the 2014 EP Out of the Bloom. Four years passed before the group reconvened to make a full-length. Wracked with grief over his father's recent death, Flynn poured his soul into the set of songs that became 2018's Springtime and Blind album. Released by Run for Cover, the record did surprisingly well given the band's modest expectations and they earned a significant following. A 7" single, "Get My Mind Right" b/w "Stay in the Room," followed in 2019 as Fiddlehead began to write material for a follow-up. Mining similar emotions and dynamics, they returned in 2021 with the anthemic Between the Richness, again on Run for Cover.
