Biography

Temecula, California, (1999–2006, 2007–2010, 2012–present)

There are at least three artists with this name; a seventies Australian rock band, a post-hardcore band and a Dutch progressive rock band.

1. Finch is an American post-hardcore band from Temecula, California. The band released an EP Falling Into Place and two full-length albums, What It Is to Burn and Say Hello to Sunshine before declaring a hiatus in 2006. Finch reformed in 2007, playing a reunion show on November 23 at the Glasshouse in Pomona, California. They released a self-titled EP a year later, and were in the process of writing their third studio album when they disbanded in late 2010. After playing a group of shows commemorating the ten-year anniversary of What It Is to Burn in 2012, Finch signed with Razor & Tie in 2014 and revealed that they were working on a new studio album. The album was titled Back to Oblivion and released on September 30, 2014.

2. Finch (1974 - 1978) was a Dutch group that continued to be known internationally years after their final concert on 14 November 1978 in World Forum Convention Center of The Hague. 2. Finch was established by guitarist Joop van Nimwegen, bass player Peter Vink (Vink meaning Finch in Dutch) and drummer Beer Klaasse. Nimwegen and Vink had earlier worked together in the Dutch formation Q65. The musical leader was Joop van Nimwegen. For lack of a good singer, Finch decided to build a repertoire of instrumental rock.

    New album IMO is awesome. I love every bit of it. Not sure if I like it more than What is to burn, but really good. [2]

    I'm glad they are back, and it sounds like they are still working out a lot of kinks. Which is fine, but the new album is ok. I'm still excited to hear more from this band though.

    WIITB and SHTS are two of my all time favourite albums. BTO is the worst album I've heard this year. So disappointing.

    Guess who had one of the most played songs on "Steven's Untitled Rock Show?" Check out the full playlist at http://spoti.fi/1xyznoT!

    The new album sounds kind of like the weakest parts of Say Hello To Sunshine. Anywhere But Here is a pretty good jam tho.

    I love the new album, But I think New Wave was a pretty weak last song.

    Absolutely love Back To Oblivion. So glad these guys are back and strong as ever. [3] Back to Oblivion blows both of their previous albums away, these guys just keep on getting better and better

    Honestly, Back to Oblivion is weak. Totally disappointed. Anyway, welcome back Finch!

    New album is excellent. One of the best of the year.

    My only gripe is that they played "Picasso Trigger" on tour a few months ago and it was just ridiculously good. The album version is so toned down and he doesn't belt out any insane screams that he does roughly 7 times during the live stuff. Feel like the label may be responsible for that one. Other than that, I'm enjoying it.
