I'm bumping this!
Coffin Break are fucking incredible. I have their entire discography including vinyls and compilations. "Thirteen" will always be at the top of my Coffin Break favorite albums, I think they stuck much closer to the punk roots in that album. In "Crawl" and even their earlier albums "Psychosis" and "Rupture" they had the dreary, slow, heavy grungey feel to their music. I remember hearing "Just Say No (To Religion)" off the Secretions Compilation a while back and was so captivated and so hooked on their sound. To me, early in their recording career they had that legitimate grunge sound, and as time wore on they evolved it into a more punk type of sound in a way.

Pete Litwin and Robert Skinner, to me were geniuses. Maybe it's the dualing vocals on some songs, but whatever it is I loved everything about it.

C/Z Records I think put out a majority of their records, and Epitaph Records released some stuff as well. After Coffin Break Pete Litwin formed the band Softy, a heavier band to me. Skinner went in the opposite direction and formed the very poppy and very catchy Popsickle. And the drummer Dave Brooks were in a bunch of bands that I can't recall.

...I checked the profile, there's no information on it at all. Unless you went into the admin panel and saw his email or something, I'm not sure how you figured out it was him.

I really need to keep up with the news these days :roll:

"The term and idea of "grunge" often gets misused and misunderstood, as if everything emanating out of late '80s, early '90s Seattle sounded like Mudhoney and wore ridiculous amounts of flannel. It's simply not true. Anyone who was there can tell you so.

Coffin Break was there.

Staples of that now world-famous, rainy moment in Seattle music history, Coffin Break wasn't built on the prototypical grunge sludgery and drudgery, rather they came at the g-word with the searing power of punk - eventually landing a deal with major label Epitaph for their effort and ass-kicking. With six records to their name, most of which were released by the classic C/Z Records, Coffin Break — through six or seven years — made a name in the Northwest music scene that still raises eyebrows and intrigue today. The band, which was led by Peter Litwin on guitar and vocals and Rob Skinner on bass and vocals, officially broke up in 1994.

The band has rarely played since; when it has always to the delight of the horn-and-glass-raising faithful. Saturday, Coffin Break will once again return, plugging in at Hell's Kitchen and setting a flame underneath the slumbering asses and memories of longtime Northwest music fiends.

Adding to the magic, Coffin Break played its first show ever at Tacoma's Community World Theater. You've got a chance to welcome the band back this weekend."

Yeah this band is GREAT! One of those bands that sounds like both punk and metal, I keep going back and forth thinking they are metal, then hearing they are punk, then hearing the punk in their songs too. I bought some songs and the two music videos of of itunes, really need the CDs or whatever though. I even put American Dream on youtube
