The Quit is an Indie rock band based out of Seattle, Washington. Early incarnations of the band began in 2004, but the current lineup has been together since 2006. The Quit consists of Scott Shoemaker (Vocals, Keyboard, Guitar), Nash McBride (Lead Guitar), Chris Borgia (Bass), and Charles Pinnell (Drums).

On May 6th 2008, The Quit released their first full-length album titled ‘Minus Tide’. Teaming with Engineer/Producer Scott Colburn (Arcade Fire, Animal Collective), the album was recorded at Gravel Voice Studios, a 100 year old church converted into Colburn’s home studio.

The Quit released their second full length album, ‘Stars Invisible By Day’ in August of 2010. The album was produced by Graig Markel (Animals At Night, Head Like a Kite) at The Recovery Room.

Both albums have received rotation airplay from Seattle radio stations KEXP and KNDD as well as KAOS in Olympia. In the June ‘08 issue of Seattle Sound Magazine, ‘Minus Tide’ received 4 out of 5 stars and the song ‘Faster’ was selected as the Single of the Month. Last year, the Quit performed at Seattle Weekly’s Reverb Festival and in this past summer they played the Georgetown Music Festival.
