Skywave was once at the state's top list. When the band called it quits, they split into two different factions ; A Place to Bury Strangers (Oliver/ NYC) and then Ceremony (Paul + John) who remain in Fredericksburg, VA.
A Place to Bury Strangers has made it to many shoegaze fan's top 10s list over the past few years but oddly the equally terrific Ceremony seems to remain more of a local secret rather than a national buzz band.
Ceremony has a brand new record coming via Killer Pimp on April 27th called "Rocket Fire" and if 1o new songs weren't enough for you...there is a 7" coming with two non LP tracks too! I am really looking forward to hearing all this new material and hope there will be a Richmond, VA show in their near future....hint hint.
