Official press release:

Bay Area CA's Ceremony are excited to announce the release of their third full-length, Rohnert Park, which will be available on June 8th 2010 via Bridge Nine Records. Rohnert Park is the band's finest material to date and mixes elements from their past work while exploring new territory for the band. This new album is equal parts aggressive and incendiary and, dare we say it, catchy. Don't let that fool you, though; Ceremony's punk stomp is apparent on Rohnert Park and Ross Farrar's vocals are as ranting as ever. Recorded this past winter in Oakland, CA with Dan Rathbun (Tragedy, From Ashes Rise), Rohnert Park is unsafe, noisy, dynamic, and pissed. And, most importantly, impressive.

Just north of San Francisco in Sonoma County is Rohnert Park, CA, where several members of Ceremony grew up. The band commented, "Where the owls can't seem to find, yet the geese are well known. Here, you are bound for the pageant, or bound for the bars. Fingers are pointed without the facts. Truth has no direction. You are useless here. Rohnert Park is desolate. Rohnert Park is majestic."

Ceremony has returned with a record that will cement them as one of the most destructive and meaningful bands that punk and hardcore has seen in years. Look for Rohnert Park in stores on June 8th - new music will be posted soon.
