The California hardcore punk-rockers of Ceremony pride themselves on being digitally antisocial. Without a MySpace, Twitter, or Facebook presence, Ceremony seems to grow its popularity purely from word-of-mouth buzz and prowess as a hammer-hard live act. On a sonic level, the band seamlessly toes a line between being a flawless, fast throwback to the early days of hardcore and being innovative pioneers of the worthwhile and new. Pegged as destructionist in its approach to songwriting, Ceremony brings a violent energy and dark pessimistic voice that resonate with audiences so much that fans have taken to whiting out the lead singer’s voice through their own shouting sing-along. Subsequently, Ceremony’s live shows have become the stuff of legend.
