Neil Perry


I've noticed a surprising amount of requests for this band, which is really nice to see. Taking their name from the Dead Poets Society character, Neil Perry were a four-piece screamo/post-hardcore band from New Jersey They formed in 1998 and broke up in 2002. They were signed to Level Plane, which put them in the same category as bands like Saetia and pg.99, who we all know and love. Neil Perry played in the same vein as them, keeping things very dark and very chaotic, and calling it quits before that got too old.

Despite that, they did have a fairly prolific tenure (for bands in their genre), since they released quite a few splits, a handful of EP's, and made numerous compilation appearances in their four years. All of their released material, plus some new stuff, was released on the compilation Lineage Situation in 2003. It contained two discs, the first being all audio and the second being all video. Only the audio is posted here. Lineage Situation is really all you need from the band, since it contains all their recorded material and more, but I included their splits and such because they worked with some amazing bands (Joshua Fit For Battle, Usurp Synapse, etc.) that are worth having both sides of the split for.


Neil Perry are also noted for having members that were involved in a ton of other great bands. When they formed, they contained members from You And I and Red All Over, and when they broke up, members split off into other bands including Hot Cross, Joshua Fit For Battle, Welcome The Plague Year, A Life Once Lost, The Now, Get Fucked, and Superstitions Of The Sky. Now that is a fucking impressive résumé. Enjoy.
