Samuel S.C.

After a 27-year hiatus, melodic punk/post-hardcore band Samuel reformed as Samuel S.C., the added initials reflecting a change in personnel and a nod to the group’s original home of State College, PA. Known for their beloved mid-90s seven-inch EPs and split with Texas Is The Reason, Samuel rose from the ashes of singer Vanessa Downing's previous band, Junction, and was one of the flagship bands of drummer Eric Astor's legendary label Art Monk Construction. Samuel S.C. released a new album, High Places, in early 2023 and a compilation of their early material, titled 94-95.
