Everdown was a crossover thrash and hardcore punk band that originated out of Manchester, New Hampshire in the United States. The band began in 1992 as Dry Bones, and later Crawlspace.[1]

History Edit

Everdown began in 1992, originally was Dry Bones.[1][2] The lineup at the time consisted of Vocalist Erik Bureau, Guitarist Nate Shumaker, and Drummer Chris Wible.[1][2] The band would then hire on Chris Allain on Bass as a session member.[2] After the band recorded a demo, they hired Bryan Young to take the mantle of Bassist.[2] In 1993, the band changed names to Crawlspace.[1][2] Bureau had departed for a brief time and would be replaced by Rob Wolfe (ex-Sacrament).[2]

In 1994, the band switched names once again to Everdown, with the lineup of Bureau, Shumaker, Wible, and a returning Allain.[2] With the lineup, the band would record their debut album, Sicken, which was released in 1994 via Tooth & Nail Records and Solid State Records.[3] Young would return on Bass briefly before Ryan Leach took over the position. With Leach, the band would begin recording Straining in 1995. Zack Wells took over Bass shortly thereafter.[2] After the album was recorded, by 1998, the band would disband, with the final lineup of Bureau, Shumaker, Wible, Rhythm Guitarist John Helmig, and Bassist John Becht.[2]

In 2009, the band reunited, with the lineup of Bureau, Shumaker, Wible, Helmig, Becht, and Greene on Rhythm Guitars.[4] The band would release a two-song EP, WD40/Black Clover, via Urban Achiever Records.[5] In 2012, the band played a reunion show alongside Stavesacre, Ghoti Hook, Puller, and Living Sacrifice.[6] In 2015, the band released a second EP, Coleman/Mr. Brown, via the same label.[5] After the release, the band seemingly embarked on a hiatus.
