Biography

Seattle’s The Divorce has severed ties with the strict stylistic confines of the recent new-wave/punk resurgence to craft passionate, fully-formed rock music with a fundamentally danceable core. The four-piece will release "The Gifted Program" on Made in Mexico Records (Dolour, The Catch) in September of 2005.

The Divorce formed as a three piece in the spring of 2001. Kyle Risan’s post-punk informed drumming and Jimmy Curran’s growling, jumpy bass patterns combined for a hard-hitting but groove-laden rhythm section. Layered under Shane Berry’s rigid, angular guitars and strident vocal delivery, and later Garrett Lunceford’s Moore-esque squeal and occasional full-on shred, The Divorce have found the sound to make them a favorite of the Seattle rock scene. The band’s first record, "There Will be Blood Tonight," was released on Fugitive Recordings back in May of 2003. Lauded by the Seattle Post-Intelligencer as “brilliant” and as “a must-have...5 of 5” by Alternative Press, the record gave The Divorce the chance to have since shared the stage with the likes of Built to Spill, Joan Jett, The Thermals, United State of Electronica, and many others.

After extensive West Coast touring and several notable festival appearances (Bumbershoot, Seattle’s Endfest), The Divorce is ready to commit its newly fleshed-out voice to record. "The Gifted Program," the band’s first record since Luceford’s addition, promises a more fully realized and beefed-up execution of "There Will be Blood Tonight’s" youthful propulsion and charm.
