Sam Black Church Bio:

Thanks for supporting one of the greatest bands to ever come out of Boston :D
Boston hardcore band Sam Black Church -- singer Jet, guitarist Ben Crandall, bassist Richard G. Lewis and drummer J.R. Roach -- released two albums for local label Taang! during the mid-'90s: a self-titled album in 1993 and the follow-up Let in Life, released the following year. For 1997's That Which Does Not Kill Us...Makes Us Stronger, the group jumped to Untangled Records; The Black Comedy followed a year later.

Sam Black Church were known for their energetic live performances. They played a frenetic blend of hardcore, metal, and thrash and shared bills with bands as diverse as Bad Brains, Clutch, Motörhead, Cro-Mags, Nothingface, Stuck Mojo, and Helmet. They were one of the most popular hardcore bands in the Northeast United States for a period in the mid-1990s.

After releasing their first three EPs on Taang! Records, Sam Black Church left for Wonderdrugrecords where they remained until the band broke up in 2000.

Sam Black Church reunited for a sold out show on September 22, 2007, at The Roxy in Boston. Unearth, Madball and Darkbuster opened the show.
