Backtrack was a Hardcore band from Long Island, NY. The band was active between 2008 and 2019. The first blip on the radar was their 2008 Demo tape, which got them picked up by 6131 records where they would go on to release another EP called Deal With the Devil in 2009.

Their debut album Darker Half was then released in 2011 through Reaper Records. The two following full-length albums Lost in Life (2014) and Bad to My World would then be released by Bridge Nine Records, a household name in the US Hardcore scene. The band announced their breakup in 2019, signing off with a final tour through North America, Asia and Australia. They played their last show on November 30, 2019 in Amityville, NY.

Stylistically, the band played a modernized version of the NYHC style pioneered by bands such as Sick Of It All or Madball.

At the time of the breakup, the band consisted of James Vitalo (vocals), Ricky Singh (guitar), Chris Smith (guitar), Danny Smith (bass), and John T. Lopez (drums).
