Snapcase was a hardcore punk band from Buffalo lasting from 1991 to 2005. Throughout this time, theyreleased 5 full lengthalbums. The group was originally concieved in 1989 in a basement in West Seneca. April1997 saw the release of ProgressionThrough Unlearning, which they recorded with Steve Evetts, an albumwhich is considered to be revolutionary by many fans ofhardcore. The band set out on a summer tour, andfeatured performances on the Vans Warped Tour. In the fall of 1997, theband took some time off so thatmembers could pursue education. In 1998, the band resumed touring, and was the openingband on the falltour of the Deftones. They also went into the studio with Brian McTernan in the fall of 1998 to record a coverofthe Bad Brains "I", released on Century Media's Never Give In tribute record, and a split EP with Boysetsfirethat was releasedin the summer of 1999. These were the last recordings with bassist Bob Whiteside. He wasreplaced by Dustin Perry, formerly ofthe Minneapolis, MN band Threadbare. They headlined Hellfest thatsummer in Syracuse, NY. Designs For Automation, the band's third full length album, was recorded in the summer of 1999 with SteveEvetts was releasedin January 2000. They spent most of 2000 on tour, performing on the Deconstructiontour in Europe with NOFX and playing themain stage of the Vans Warped Tour in the summer. Ben Lythbergbegan playing drums for the band during the fall, winter andspring while Redmond finished his mastersdegree. Snapcase built a reputation for composing music with complex guitar lines, harmonic distortion, and relentlessrhythms.Lyrically, their songs explored themes of self-determination, affirmation, and personal challenge. Tomany, Snapcase was one ofthe most progressive and influential bands in independent music, and wasdedicated to combining intellectual theory withaggressive music (as the band has claimed). Nevertheless,Snapcase always promoted free-thinking and an unrelenting questfor change, as their socially conscious lyricsreveal. The members of the band are all straight edge, as well, but according toFrank Vicario, they're "notreally singing about it or promoting it". « hide
