Originally known as Failsafe, a late '90s Northwest Indiana metallic hardcore band, the band eventually grew tired of the Failsafe moniker, in addition to their vocalist, and set about to solidify a new lineup and get a new name. At the time, the band consisted of Jason Gagovski (who also played drums in Chicago's Extinction), Jay Golday (who has a Bachelors Degree in Jazz Guitar), and Bob Peele (magazine editor and veteran of several bands). They quickly added friend Casey Donley on vocals, scrapped all of their previous songs, and began writing material with a new direction and feel. Shortly afterwards, in the Fall of 1999, they recorded eight songs in Indianapolis and prepared a demo tape that sold a few hundred copies in a few months. In December of 2000, the band entered God City Studios with producer and Converge member, Kurt Ballou, to record an EP, "Come On Save Me," for Hawthorne Street Records. Critically and commercially acclaimed, the record quickly attracted the attention of Ferret Music, which signed the band in mid-2001. Suicide Note is as equally adept at producing blistering hardcore, as they are at dropping melodic and technical metal. They're rather difficult to describle, but fans of everything from old Cave In, to Botch, to Every Time I Die, should have a listen. hide
