Coalesce biography
COALESCE are an Experimental/Post-Metal band from Kansas City, Kansas, originally formed in 1994 under the name Breach. The original lineup consisted of vocalist/guitarist Jes Steinenger, bassist Stacy Hilt, and drummer Jim Redd. Their name changed to COALESCE after the addition of vocalist Sean Ingram a year later. COALESCE currently consists of founding members Steinenger and Ingram, but they are complimented by newer recruits Nathan Ellis on bass and Nathan Richardson on drums. COALESCE's history as a band is a rather rocky one, fraught with numerous breakups, hiatuses, reformations, and lineup changes.

The original lineup of COALESCE recorded an early demo EP under West End Studios in 1995, which caught the attention of UK label Earache Records, who had them record and release a second EP entitled 002 later that year, and they began touring in late 1995 in support of BLOODLET and 108. The tour proved difficult for interpersonal relationships among the band members, and an incident after the tour between Ingram and Redd resulted in the band breaking up in early 1996. Ingram would reform the band later that year without Redd, who was replaced by drummer James DeWees while Redd was away at school. Two more 7 recordings, one on Earache and one on Edison Recordings, would give way to the band writing their first full-length, Give Them Rope, in 1997 under Edison Records.
After a brief tour and a number of 7 splits with groups like CONVERGE and TODAY IS THE DAY, the band would go on to record their second full-length, Functioning on Impatience, released in 1998 under Second Nation Recordings. During this time, founding member Stacy Hilt was replaced with current member Nathan Ellis. They attempted to tour during this time in support of their new record with NEUROSIS, THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN and NILE but the tour was marred by problems with the tour van and more disputes between band members. They ended up cutting the tour short and went on indefinite hiatus.
In 1999, COALESCE released their third full-length, 012:Revolution in Just Listening, which was recorded in separate sessions by the band members. The next three years would prove to be rocky ones for the band, as the group went through numerous feuds amongst the members, monetary issues, side projects, and constant departures and additions to the lineup. They would end up reforming in 2002 with guitarist Cory White (THE ESOTERIC) replacing Steinenger. In 2004, Steinenger re-jo...
