Four Hundred Years was a melodic screamo band from Richmond, VA. Although they were only together for just over two years, the band produced two full-length releases and a compilation of singles on Lovitt Records.

History

Four Hundred Years began in Tucson, Arizona, following the break-up of Groundwork, and eventually found a home in Richmond, Virginia. The band's albums capture a frenzy of hardcore intensity, built around simultaneously emotional and political themes. Four Hundred Years formed in 1998 with Daron Hollowell on vocals and guitar, Ash Bruce on drums, Erin Housholder on bass and Dave Jackson on guitar and vocals. The band began to write intense hardcore songs with a sound descended from Rites of Spring, Fugazi and Hoover. Their full-length debut, Transmit Failure was released on Lovitt Records in September 1998. The record combined melody and dissonance stunningly and the group soon found themselves with a large, loyal following. Suture and Other Songs was released in 1999. In 2000, after a lineup change, with Bull replacing Erin Housholder, The New Imperialism was released on Lovitt. The band played four more East Coast shows and disbanded. Daron Hollowell and Ash Bruce went on to join Bats and Mice, a band whose music belies its hardcore roots with gentle, melodic and experimental rock

Upon the completion of recording "The New Imperialism" they played four final shows on the east coast before disbanding.
