Scar After Scar / Bio

Lie dormant, lucid yet blurred, as the sonic tides ebb and flow across each grain of your captive soul, as we waft and list through the beckoning transom of your nattered conscience, as your heart drives you -- thump, thump...thump, thump...thump, thump -- to the agonizing crescendo. We are Scar After Scar. Come with us.

History -

Scar After Scar represents the genesis of the reformation of some of the founding members of the band 'Menace,' Rob Harrison, Pete Lee and Bill Murphy, in late 2010.

After trying out a succession of vocalists, in mid-2012 Rob suggested adding high school friend, and fellow musician, Michael Payne (Swerve for the Girl) on vocals.

As the band worked to craft it's distinctive sound throughout 2012 and 2013, changes in the band's lineup have helped the band solidify into an extremely tight unit.

At the end of 2013, due to his relocation to Eugene, the band lost Bill Murphy on drums. SAS was fortunate enough to immediately replace Bill with veteran Portland-area drummer, Scott Andergard (Hema). Then, in February 2014, the band decided to part ways with Peter Lee. However, the addition of Scott has ushered in a renewed sense of creativity and drive to the band, as well as provided a more contemporary sound.

Sound -

With roots in 70s Punk, 80s Metal, 90s Alternative and all 21st century Rock genres, Scar After Scar is a singularly unique and distinctive band which defies classification.

For lack of a better term, Scar After Scar has been described as "Punk Metal." Their sound is melodic, raw, powerful and immediately accessible to an audience. And the band's unwavering focus on song structure, musicianship and stage-craft allows them to go toe-to-toe with any band, big or small, that shares a stage with them.

Now, Scar After Scar is poised to go as far as the fans will take them.
