Thanks to Jacob Shumaker for the help with this post.

Bane are a five-piece hardcore punk band from Worcester, Massachusetts formed in 1995. They were initially formed by guitarist Aaron Dalbec as a side project to Converge, who was a member of at the time. Converge guitarist Kurt Ballou even played their first few shows as well. They didn't release their first full-length until 1999, after a slew of 7"'s (all compiled on Holding This Moment). Since then, they've only released three other full-lengths. Though they have a limited output of releases, they've continued a relentless touring schedule with an intense, vigorous live show. Early in their career they claimed straight edge, though don't identify with it anymore. However, they do promote unity and tolerance and the ideals of it within the hardcore scene. The band just released a full-length, Don't Wait Up, this year. They've billed it as their final album but will continue to tour. These guys are one of the most essential hardcore bands, so get into it. Enjoy.
