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 is 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”.

    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.

    Did they just scrap the album they were working on a while back? I have a full album's worth of demos from World Of Violence from 2009. Some pretty cool songs. I'm assuming they were just working titles though. Anyone know if any of those songs are appearing on the new album under a different name?

    So psyched for the album, been a fan since 04-05 I think. And gotta agree with the guys saying the albums are aging pretty well. I still think their stuff is pretty damn awesome
