Finch is an American post hardcore/ alternative rock band from Temecula, California. Despite taking several hiatuses, they’ve been together since 1999.
The band was originally formed under the name Numb by vocalist Nate Barcalow, guitarist Alex “Grizz” Linares, drummer Alex Pappas, and bassist Derek Doherty. The band signed with Drive- Thru Records and added guitarist Randy “R2K” Strohmeyer to the lineup. Additionally, it was at this time that the group also changed their name to Finch. They released their first EP entitled “Falling Into Place” in 2001 and it sold over 6,000 copies within its first week of release. Led off by three singles, “What It Is to Burn”, “Letters to You” and “New Beginnings,” the band released their debut full-length album, “What It Is To Burn” in 2002. They set out on tour around parts of the world, and despite having mixed reviews, the album was generally well received. After the tour, the band went back into the studio, to record new material for their second album.
During the time of this recording, the band largely fell from the public eye, and experienced some lineup changes in 2004. Replaced by Marc Allen, Alex Pappas left the band due to musical differences; and later formed the band Redgun Radar. Additionally, Finch went through three different record labels, Drive-Thru Records and MCA Records, which was then purchased by Geffen Records. All of this pushed back the release of their second album, “Say Hello To Sunshine” which wasn’t released until the summer of 2005.
In 2006 the band made an announcement that they would be going on an indefinite hiatus. The hiatus lasted until late 2007 and they again became more active in 2008. Their new shows brought about the release of a self-titled EP in July 2008. Despite the series of announcements and a few single releases, the band announced that they were broken up in 2010. However, the break-up didn’t last long, because in 2012 they came together again to play a show for the anniversary of the release of “What It Is To Burn.” They were originally slated to play only one performance of the album in California, however they later announced extra dates, eventually becoming a full-fleged tour. Post tour the band recorded and released few songs, and in 2014 the band took part in the Vans Warped Tour.
