FLOOR.

Legendary Miami band FLOOR reunites tonight at Churchill’s for what is sure to be an epic(ly loud) show.  The press release for the show does a better job of explaining than we could so read on, RSVP on Facebook and see you tonight!

Celebrating the release of their “Below & Beyond” box set, FLOOR will be getting back together to play four shows in the southeast. In keeping with the chronology and theme of the box set, the shows will reflect the lineups of each era of the band: Betty will be playing drums for songs from the early days, followed by Jeff on drums from the Dove era, and end with Henry stomping his way through the Floor album. And, of course, Steve and Anthony on vocals and guitars.
FLOOR was formed in 1992 by Steve Brooks (guitar), Anthony Vialon (bass), and Betty Monteavaro (drums). Jeff Sousa became the drummer in late 1993, at which time Steve and Anthony switched to two low-tuned guitars with no bassist. Early influences included MELVINS and GODFLESH, later developing their own sound of melodic, pop-infused doom. Several vinyl-only 7″ EPs were released before their first break in 1996. The band reformed with a new lineup for one show in 1997 with Henry Wilson on drums and practiced only occasionally until 2001. 2002 saw the release of their first full-length album, self-titled Floor, before splitting in 2003 for good.
