Biography

Temecula, San Diego CA, United States (1999 – 2006, 2007 – 2010)

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 was an American band from Temecula, California. They reformed from hiatus in November 2007 after a two year break. They have completed a reunion tour across the east coast, west coast’s of America and the U.K. They have since completed a new self titled EP (released July 2008); their first new material for three years… They are currently unsigned, focusing on more freedom to work independent from a record label. The band was formerly part of Drive-Thru Records who had a contract with MCA Records to transfer bands to their label. MCA Records was later bought out by Geffen Records. The band formed in 1999 and were originally a Deftones cover band. Starting out as entirely different band called Numb, they added Randy to the fold, re-named themselves Finch and changed tunings from C to D Flat. Their EP Falling Into Place sold over 6,000 copies only months after being released.

In August/September 2001, the band entered the studio up at Big Fish studio in Encinitas, CA to begin working on their first full length, What It Is To Burn. It was produced by Mark Trombino, who had worked with Jimmy Eat World, blink-182 (Randy Strohmeyer’s, at the time, favorite band), Midtown and many others. After touring extensively (2 years) in support of this CD, Finch contributed a new song Worms Of The Earth to the motion picture Underworld soundtrack in 2003, that track was also included on “Atticus Clothing’s… Dragging The Lake 2”.

    That new Finch is such a horrible band and they couldn't even pick an original name. LOL

    Just got back from seeing them on What It Is To Burn X tour, they still put on a ridiculous show. Two news songs, both good, made me super excited for the new album in September.

    lets keep our fingers crossed, though Say Hello to Sunshine would be a hard album to top off
