The anchorite four

So I am back with August now, this time around I'll mix it up a bit. So I did plastic smile records in May while I did Off cloud nine between June and July along with Coercion in July too. Today I present you a band from the early 00's known as The anchorite four. This band reminds me of the early On the might of princes. The band was from Florida lasting up to 2004 I believe. This band is one of the rare instances that put out a 21 track debut album. That's right. 21 song Self titled that was self released by them as a CDr. The closest actual release of theirs comes from the bands second album called "Remove the chassis" I do feel a much better progression of the band as they moved away from the pop like sound from some songs off the self titled. Remove the chassis is more matured out and well written. Even at times it has some mathy notes added between a few songs. This seems to be the only album that was released by a label. The band did record a 7 track EP "If you want us to stay together I feel bad for you son, we got 99 problems but a band ain't one" (What a long EP title) well it almost progresses the same as Remove the chassis. The EP was recorded in 2006 which I am not entirely sure if the band was still a band considering Remove the chassis was released sometime in 2003. That pretty much brings up to the conclusion. The band did not released much but considering they made about 39-40 songs since the self titled is like 2 albums worth they did quite a lot during their existence. I was able to snag a copy of the CD through BEAR records that still had a mint sealed of Remove the chassis. I liked what I heard and I think they belong here to be remembered for what they did.
