Biography

Kansas City MO, United States (1994 – present)

Coalesce is a Kansas City based band. Their music is characterized by strange shifting tempos, noise, groove, and boundless creativity paralleled only by the band’s peers in groups like The Dillinger Escape Plan and Botch.

The band began in January of 1994 and originally consisted of Jes Steineger (guitar), Stacy Hilt (bass) and Jim Redd (drums). During this time they played under the name Breach, however, when Sean Ingram joined as a vocalist later in the year, the members opted to change their name to Coalesce.

With their name and lineup solidified, Coalesce entered West End Studios to record a demo which was pressed to a 7” EP that rapidly sold out.

The UK division of Earache Records was so impressed by the unique and innovative sound featured on Coalesce’s demo that they invited the band to record an EP for Earache’s 7” series imprint, ‘New Chapter’. The EP, simply titled ‘002’, was recorded in one day and released in 1995. 002 marked the beginning of Coalesce’s relationship with Red House Studios and producer Ed Rose, who would go on to produce almost all of Coalesce’s later material.

In 1995, Coalesce embarked on their first US tour in support of Bloodlet and 108. When the band returned home from the road, a blowup between Redd and Ingram resulted in Coalesce disbanding in early 1996.

In the summer of 1996, guitarist Jes Steineger contacted Ingram and the two decided to reform the band.

    Sean Ingram has recently been featured on 'Pelican of the Desert' by Every Time I Die. Does that mean a reunion tour? :) Also, OXEP needs more recognition.

    I wish these guys were far more active than they currently are. They were incredible with Converge a few years back

    Stating that Coalesce is underrated nowadays is a pretty sound statement.

    DEP and Converge are different because they are a lot more prolific, specifically converge, who have 10 albums, each one receiving critical acclaim Same thing with DEP

    Compared to bands like Converge and DEP (both who are starting to become commercially successful), these guys are sorely underrated.
