Help! I’m not 100% sure when this show happened. So if you have details—like you know the date, or have a flier or video / audio / photos to share—please contact me.
This was Sheilbound in their final quartet permutation. I really loved what they did at all the different points in their transformation from post-Helmet Noise Rock as Primitive into don’t-call-it-Emo, post-hardcore tuneful rock.
But this final phase was special. Mike “Misha” Lester (guitar) joined the longtime trio of Michael Shumaker (guitar), Jacob Edwards (bass) and his twin brother Isaac Edwards (drums). Shumaker was the lead vocalist but everyone was sangin’ and gettin’ wild at this juncture.
I think the Mohawk gig was after this one, but I’m not 100% sure. Sometime not too long after this Shumaker moved on to Hey Mercedes and toured the world.
I don’t have too much more to add here except that I miss these guys and I miss Sheilbound music… and I wish I knew when these photos dated from.
