The best kept secret in music


"EP Review"

"Formed in the winter of 2003, these guys are already making heads pop with their highly emotional blend of pop. Singer Mark Holmes twists and turns on stage throwing out tons of energy. With sharp looks, good guitar licks(in the vain of Muse and Radiohead), and a strong melodic vocal style bring Like Yesterday to the top. Top tune is "Brand New."
- Crashin'

"Like Yesterday @ Rothko, December 17th, 2004"

"We like this New York band--with their melodic songs, falcetto backing vocals and an inspiring on-stage performance, Like Yesterday serves up a new twist on guitar-driven, song-focused rock..." - TimeOut New York


"More Courage Than Most," EP, 2005, Bandha Records.


Feeling a bit camera shy


Like Yesterday emerges from the New York City indie rock scene with unique vocals and a guitar-driven soundscape. The band recently completed the North-East leg of Taking Back Sunday's Fall 2004 tour, and more recently played sold-out shows with My Chemical Romace, Coheed and Cambria, Midtown and Starting line which solidified Like Yesterday's strong and growing fan base in North-East.

Like Yesterday has also completed their first EP with Producer/Engineer Paul Mahajan (Yeah Yeah Yeahs, TV On The Radio, The Liars) and went on to record a mini-album set to be released in May 2005 under Brian Malouf's Columbia imprint label Bandha Records.

Matt Rubano (bass), Mark Holmes (vocals), Dave Holmes (guitar), and Joe Tomino (drums), were working on putting a band together when they encountered the strong songwriting of newcomer, Seva Granik (guitar). As Mark Holmes explains, “I had been looking to put something like this together but didn't know where to start until I met Seva. He had these great songs without any lyrics--I instantly knew he was someone I wanted to work with." Granik's songwriting talent comes together perfectly with lead singer Mark Holmes' piercing, and emotional vocals and the versatility and technical prowess of Rubano, Tomino, and Dave Holmes.

Like Yesterday’s music is driven by emotion and provokes a visceral response from listeners. Granik emphasizes, "I want people to understand that we live this music." It is their honesty, both bitter and sweet, that connects the band to their audience. Mark Holmes explains, "This band is about having the courage to deal with life's most vulnerable moments, and then to actually share those experiences in an intimate way with our audience." Like Yesterday hits their mark drawing in listeners with passion that is unadulterated and genuinely inspiring.
