Buffalo post-hardcore band Snapcase -- known for chunky, stop-start riffing and for turning the world of hardcore on its ear in 1997 with the groundbreaking 'Progression Through Unlearning' album and the equally innovative 'Steps' EP -- have reunited!

The band has scheduled a spate of shows in Europe and recently added a hometown show to their touring plans. New York hardcore legends Sick of It All will also perform at the Buffalo show, which will be held at the Town Ballroom on May 8.

The band broke up in 2005 but played two reunion shows in Brooklyn, N.Y. in November 2007, during which this writer (and Snapcase uber-fan) lost her voice completely by the second song.

Noisecreep will keep you posted on further details of the band's reunion plans and if that includes a full U.S. tour and/or new material.
