CEREMONY


BIO:
Ceremony is an American hardcore punk band from Rohnert Park, California. Forming in the San Francisco Bay Area, the band originally formed as Violent World until later changing the name to Ceremony. In 2005, Ceremony released Ruined on Malfunction Records. This release was followed by their critically acclaimed first full-length album, Violence Violence, which included a re-recorded version of the Ruined EP.[citation needed] 2008 saw the release of Still Nothing Moves You, Ceremony's first release on Bridge 9 Records, described by Exclaim!'s Keith Carman as "hardcore’s equivalent of Hiroshima", which placed on Billboard's Top Internet and Top Heatseekers charts in August 2008. After touring all around the world[citation needed] with bands such as Blacklisted, Converge, and AFI, they've released new music, including their third full-length album Rohnert Park in 2010. In 2011, the band confirmed they had signed with Matador Records, and their final Bridge 9 release would be a covers-only EP, featuring the band's take on songs by Urban Waste, Pixies, Crisis, Eddie and the Subtitles, Vile and Wire. In February 2012, the band released the album Zoo on Matador Records which was a departure from the harder style even more so than the Rohnert Park album was, with the new record focusing on a more pre-hardcore punk sound in the style of Wire's Pink Flag album.
