2011 release from the Indie/Alt Rock band. You'll have to forgive the three members of Hammer No More The Fingers if they don't seem surprised by the success of their North Carolina peers. Growing up in the 1990s in Durham, North Carolina, childhood friends Joe Hall, Jeff Stickley, and Duncan Webster witnessed first-hand the rise of a diverse swath of North Carolina bands onto the national stage. Superchunk, Whiskeytown, Archers of Loaf, Polvo, Corrosion of Conformity and other stalwarts each worked their way from the triangle that is Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill into the national's college rock consciousness. Not long after, the trio began honing their own brand of pure, powerful indie rock that's both cathartic and catchy. Rich soil, they say, yields a bountiful crop for many years.
