Biography

Consult Webster's, or your favorite role-playing geek, and you'll learn the definition of Celerity as speed or rapidity of motion. Other sources, like this computer screen (or piece of paper, depending on your medium) will define Celerity as three twenty-something musicians playing energetic, inspired, and dare I say original, punk rock.
For the most part, Celerity's influences lay in the hunch punch of punk, pop, and metal that was 90's alternative rock. Bands like The Offspring, The Melvins, and Rancid all contributed to the band's style, which made these kids gross standouts in a Savannah, GA scene dominated by screamo and metallish hardcore acts. Their energetic performances and dedication to the younger crowds, always booking all-age shows where all-age venues were hard to come by, earned them respect from their colleagues across genre-lines. Outgrowing their home town after a year or so, the band picked up stake and relocated to Athens.
Sonically, the band has been compared to early Nirvana and the Offspring. Show-goers have compared their energy to that of Rage Against the Machine and Motorhead. When asked, they would compare themselves to Kylesa or Showbread, along with a long list of Savannah bands that you have never heard of, due to their unadulterated love of music, and their conceited, 'I don't really care what other people think' attitude.
Outside the music, their general attitude is one of dedication and hard work. In their short career, they have booked two national tours, without a label or booking agency of any kind. They have close to as much studio experience as many of the major-label bands with which they've played. Recording in Savannah, Atlanta, Seattle, and Nashville, the boys are pros in the studio.
