Watch & Listen
American punk rock band originally named Section VIII (3) from Goleta, just outside Santa Barbara, California. Their name comes from the band's old tour van, which can been seen on the back cover of the album Trashed. The band went on hiatus around 2000 and reunited in 2002.
Face To Face
Face to Face was formed in 1991 by front man Trever Keith, bassist Matt Riddle and drummer Rob Kurth. Previously the trio played in a band known as Zero Tolerance (17) along with guitarist Mark Haake. Prior to Zero Tolerance, Trever and Matt played in a band named Victoria Manor, which disbanded in the late 80’s.
Face to Face's first album, Don’t Turn Away, was released in 1992 by Dr. Strange Records, a small independent label located in Alta Loma, California. After nine studio albums and a dedicated following, arguably the band is most well known for their single, "Disconnected," which was released on the band’s first two albums and received significant airplay on college radio.
During the bands 25-year career, Keith had been the only constant member with many former band members finding success in other bands. Former drummer, Pete Parada is the current drummer for The Offspring and former bassist Matt Riddle had success in No Use For A Name and currently plays with The Implants.
The band currently consists of Trever on vocals and guitar with guitarist Dennis Hill filling out the rhythm section. Scott Shiflett is the band's bassist and has been a member of the band since Riddle’s departure in late 1995. Finally, veteran drummer Danny Thompson has been behind the kit since the band reformed in 2008.
