Standfast is a Lost Band from Rochester
About the Band
The Original standfast started in early 1998 Fairport, Rochester, NY. Quickly morphing into a ball of furious musical energy and emotion. Playing shows with the likes of many peers such as BREAK OF DAWN, BANE, BARRIT,Drowning Man, Saves the day, One King Down and many many more... Punknews article: June 3rd 2002... Two Rochester, NY hardcore bands, Standfast and Break of Dawn, played their last shows recently. Here's our submitter had to say, "The two have set an undeniable precedent for up-and-coming hardcore bands as well as totally overtook every person that ever saw them play. It's always sad when a band has to step down, but these two definitely deserve any credit that they were ever given by anyone because of their hard work and dedication to trying to make their place in the hardcore scene. Both have been rocking the crowds for quite sometime now and it is definitely a truism to state that they will both be missed. Thanks for the great music guys."
