HISTORY for SALE

HISTORY for SALE

 Seattle, Washington, USA
BandRockPop

Take Coldplay, Pearl Jam, Matchbox 20, Metallica, and have some drinks. HISTORY for SALE would be the next day.

We strive for musicianship and a sound that begs to be heard.

There are plenty of bands in Seattle that suck. We are not one of them.

Biography

Here is the reality...not the illusion:

Basically we get together and sit around wishing we were still teenagers. We want to play the big tours, the big shows, the big rooms. Our music is definitely able to carry us there, but unfortunately we are at work trying to pay our bills. So please leave a message after the beep and when we get back from Home Depot or Bed Bath & Beyond, we'll hit you back about playing that epic-amazing-show.

As a band we have 0% drama and that is a rare thing. We treat people with respect as we would expect it from others.

H4S came together out of the crumbles of other bands and projects as many bands do. There are no mystical explosions or super awesome reasons we exist other than we do, and have been existing since 2007-2008. "Ryewire" was the previous band and imploded. A new singer was needed and Mark Young was looking for a new Ginsu 2000 knife set on Craigslist. He answered and ad and didn't suck so the rest is history.

Original member and bass player Pete Bossler moved to Florida in the summer of 2009 right after the realease of our self titled debut EP "History For Sale". Pete needed to leave for the chance to make mad bank and we sent him off with much, much love and respect.

Doug Warren came in a couple of months after Pete's departure to play bass. Doug was in a previous band with guitarist Keefe O'Neill called "Lady Slipper". Doug was a natural fit for the ever changing direction of HISTORY for SALE.

Seattle has some shitty bands. We are not one of them. Fuck yourself if you think so...Because we are still going to be making music when your shitty little Americana, twee, pseudo-alt-country-folk band breaks up after 8 months of sucking off the local blogging dick and tit bang party.

That is the truth. Sorry if it rubs your skinny jeans the wrong way.

PS...our singer is deaf. No, really, he is and can still sing better than yours.
