Advent was an American Christian Hardcore band from Kernersville, North Carolina. The band featured members of an earlier post-hardcore band named Beloved, and was considered a pseudo-continuation of that band.[1] The band had released two albums under the label Solid State Records.[2] The band announced in July 2011 that they had disbanded, and held two final shows on September 2 and 3 in South Carolina and North Carolina, respectively.[citation needed]
