Greeley Estates Biography

Phoenix screamo outfit Greeley Estates formed in late 2002. A year after starting, the quintet -- vocalist Ryan Zimmerman, guitarist Dallas Smith, guitarist Brandon Hackenson, drummer Brian Champ, and bassist Josh Applebach -- was already building a cultlike following in and around its hometown with a slickly produced and self-released full-length, Outside of This. The group soon found itself playing South by Southwest in Austin, and in mid-2005 inked a deal with Record Collection. Greeley Estates then co-headlined Myspace.com's fall tour, and released their EP, Caveat Emptor, in November 2005. The album highlighted the band's use of catchy melodies and intense vocals, together with a hardcore edge and positive attitude. In January 2006, the band went into the studio to record its second full-length before joining the Taste of Chaos tour alongside heavy-hitters like the Deftones, Thrice, and Story of the Year. A spring nationwide headlining tour was completed before the resulting album, Far from the Lies, was issued in June. Summer was next spent on the road with Warped. ~ Corey Apar, All Music Guide
