    967-969 Commonwealth Avenue
    Boston, MA 02215
    Finch is a post-hardcore band that emerged out of Temecula, CA in 1999 under the name Numb. The band changed its name to Finch just before recording and releasing its debut EP, Falling Into Places, in 2001. After a well received debut album, 2002's What It Is to Burn, but an unsuccessful follow up in 2005's Say Hello to Sunshine, the band took its first hiatus, which lasted only a year. The band returned with a live DVD, several music videos, a self-titled EP and plans for releasing its third album. Despite having several recording done, Finch never released its third album but instead decided to break up before releasing a digital EP titled Epilogue in 2010. Finch reunited for a 10 year anniversary tour of its debut album in 2013
