After a 27-year hiatus, melodic punk/post-hardcore band Samuel reformed as Samuel S.C., the added initials reflecting a change in personnel and a nod to the group’s original home of State College, PA. Known for their beloved mid-90s seven-inch EPs and split with Texas Is The Reason, Samuel rose from the ashes of singer Vanessa Downing’s previous band, Junction, and was one of the flagship bands of drummer Eric Astor’s legendary label Art Monk Construction. Both the band and label relocated to DC in 1995, then split before recording an anticipated full length. Between 2019 – 2021, four of the five geographically scattered-but-still-close longtime friends revisited and reconstructed older songs, crafted a few new ones, and finally made their debut LP High Places, released on Org Music in early 2023, along with a compilation of their early material, titled 94-95. Shows and more new music to come!
