Biography

Oakland, California, United States

Communiqué is an indie rock/dance-punk band from Oakland, California, United States. The band originally consisted of four musicians (Rory Henderson, Ryan Massey, John Peck and Jamie Kissinger) that had previously played together, and acheived local and national underground success, under the name American Steel. With the addition of keyboardist Cory Gowan (formerly of bay area bands Amscray and Streets & Avenues), Communique was formed in 2002.

In February of 2003 their first EP, A Crescent Honeymoon, was released on Lookout! Records. Lookout! also released Poison Arrows, in June of 2004.

With the departure of Cory in the fall of 2005, the band regrouped and brought in longtime friend Steve Lowensohn (formerly of bay area band The Cost).

    Communique's evolution on the last Ep its a breaktrough. I could imagine this kid would pull off the stick on their brains and make such great music. I currently love them... i liked them when poison arrow came out.. but that was it. Now.. i cant get enough. Changes are good .. good for them. El rey del martes i can give u the ep, i have it.. im still dancing here.

    Any one know where I can find the songs off the new EP? (Other than buying it, becuase I'd have to order it and I live in canada so the shipping will be more than the disk)

    I saw them when they were the opening band for Flogging Molly, and the first opening band sucked, but these guys rocked! They've got talent and have great songs. So yay for these guys from San Fransico.
