One of independent music's most substantive bands, Coliseum was founded in 2003 by Louisville musician Ryan Patterson and is rounded out by bassist Kayhan Vaziri and longtime drummer Carter Wilson. This power trio has grown to become one of the quintessential contemporary punk bands, successfully melding progressive musicianship, hardcore fervor, and vital social awareness into one constantly evolving artistic vision. Coliseum’s highly acclaimed fourth full length, Sister Faith, was released on Temporary Residence in 2013. Sister Faith expanded on the anthemic direction of previous releases with their most dynamic and immediately captivating songs of the band's career, bristling with galvanizing melodies at the collision point between post-punk and post-hardcore. Over the last decade Coliseum have released music on a host of labels including; Temporary Residence, Relapse, Level Plane, Auxiliary (Ryan’s own label), and Deathwish Inc., their current label home.
