Counterfist

Counterfist was formed when three Seattle natives met with two friends from Yakima, Washington. The group started as a seedling trio of Bruner on bass guitar, Clark on drums, and Peterson on guitar. Peterson took a stab at singing for a while and decided it wasn't his forte. The threesome decided to put an ad in The Stranger (a Seattle-area indie-mag with a heavy spin towards music) for a vocalist. After having unsuccessful tryouts, Clark suggested a friend of his from Yakima, George Grissom.

After having unsuccessful tryouts, Clark suggested a friend of his from Yakima, George Grissom. Grissom showed up to one of the practices, and it was decided then and there that he was the perfect choice to be their front man.

Bring in Matthew Scott. Scott and Peterson were childhood friends, and one day, out of the blue, Scott contacted Peterson and told him that he had begun playing keyboards. Peterson brought it up to the other band members, and it was soon decided that Scott and his abilities would benefit Counterfist by providing a bigger, more ambient sound.

Visible on the Seattle music circuit for approximately three years, the band released their independent debut album in June of 2001. Chiral, a 10-track CD with a powerful sound written and composed collectively by the five band members was recorded at Seattle's famous Ironwood Studios. The band later released Vertical Mile in 2008 and it's most recent EP titled, "Give up the Ghost" in 2011. « hide
