Ink and Dagger was a post-hardcore/punk band from Philadelphia. Formed in 1995, the group quickly became known for theiroutrageous and, usually,
confrontational live shows and for their signature facepaint (which they later removed from their act).Ink and Dagger initially appeared to have split in
2000, due to the tragic death of frontman Sean Patrick McCabe, although thegroup was temporarily revived in 2010 with Thursday frontman Geoff
Rickly taking over vocal duties, although Ink and Daggeragain disintegrated by late 2011.
