Pinegrove are a band from Montclair, New Jersey who blend ragged, emo-tinged indie rock with Americana influences.
Led by singer/songwriter Evan Stephens Hall, along with core members Nick Levine (guitar) and brother Zack Levine (drums), the band first emerged in 2010 with a self-released EP called Mixtape One. Their debut album, Meridian, arrived in 2012, followed in subsequent years by a pair of independently released EPs, & and Mixtape Two. In early 2015, all of their previous releases were collected in an anthology called Everything So Far, which soon caught the attention of Boston label Run for Cover Records
, which reissued the album later that year. With a new record deal in place, Pinegrove made their label debut in early 2016 with their sophomore effort Cardinal. A year later, Run for Cover
reissued their compilation Everything So Far in a deluxe vinyl edition. ~ Timothy Monger, Rovi
