Communiqué

Although Communique debuted under that name with a 2003 EP, the Bay Area indie rockers' roots stretch nearly a decade prior to that release. Under the name American Steel, singer Rory Henderson, guitarist Ryan Massey, bassist John Peck, and drummer Jamie Kissinger formed in Oakland in 1995 and released three 7" EPs and a trio of albums, American Steel (1998), Rogue's March (1999), and Jagged Thoughts (2000). American Steel underwent a stylistic shift after their third album, dispensing with their previous hard-edged and punky sound in favor of a much more overtly poppy indie rock style. In the midst of this change of direction, American Steel changed their name to Communique. Adding keyboardist Cory Gowan, Communique released the EP "A Crescent Honeymoon" in February 2003. The band's first full-length album, "Poison Arrows," was released in the summer of 2004. Gowan left the band in 2005, replaced by new keyboardist Stephen Loewinsohn. Signing with Sabot Productions label, Communique reappeared in the fall of 2006 with the EP Walk into the Light.
