Ceremony is an American punk rock band from Rohnert Park, California. The band features Ross Farrar (vocals), Anthony Anzaldo (guitar), Justin Davis (bass), Andy Nelson (guitar), and Jake Casarotti (drums). Ryan Mattos (guitar) left before the group's Matador Records signing in 2011.
In 2005, the band released the EP Ruined on Malfunction Records. This release was followed by their critically acclaimed first full-length album, Violence Violence, which included a re-recorded version of the Ruined EP.
In March 2012, the band released the album Zoo on Matador Records which was a departure from the harder style even more so than the Rohnert Park album was, with the new record focusing on a more pre-hardcore punk sound in the style of Wire's Pink Flag (1977) album.
In March 2015, the band confirmed on their Facebook page that their next album, titled The L-Shaped Man, will be released on May 19, 2015, through Matador Records.
The band's main influences include The Ventures, Joy Division, TSOL, and especially The Beach Boys. The band's early sound has been compared to that of Infest and described as a "non-stop bludgeoning of sonic fury" and "fast, brutal hardcore".
