Anchoress is a four-piece hardcore punk band
hailing from Vancouver, BC whose razor-sharp wit is
matched only by their frenzied yet deliberate sonic
attack. Composed of Rob Hoover, Keenan Federico,
Ricky Castanedo, and Chris Lennox-Aasen, the
band is gaining new fans and critical acclaim at
every turn, and shows no sign of slowing down.
Having graced the cover of BeatRoute magazine
with their friends Jen & Sylvia Soska (The Twisted
Twins), appeared in multiple Georgia Straight
features, and received regular airplay on Canadian
radio, Anchoress are continually proving that they
are capable of living up to the hype.
The band has shared the stage with the likes of
Gallows, DevilDriver, Trash Talk, Cancer Bats,
Guttermouth, and Baptists, and recently collaborated
with 3 Inches of Blood and Andrew W.K. on a cover
of Andrew’s hit song “Party Hard.” Always in good
company, they were the first band to sign with
management company CrowsNest Vancouver. With
their debut album set to hit stores in Spring 2013,
Anchoress is definitely the band to watch this year!
