After a six year hiatus, Choke is back!

Critics and fans alike have praised Choke for their incomparable, innovative, and experimental approach to post-hardcore and punk. Intricately layered, complex and technical, Choke's sound managed to remain distinct and original throughout their entire discography.

Originally forming in 1994, Choke released Lotion in 1995, followed a year later by Give'er. Choke signed to Smallman in 1997 after sending a cassette that had been lodged under the seat of their car for what must have been months.

Foreword followed in 1999, There's A Story to this Moral in 2002, and Slow Fade OR: How I Learned To Question Infinity in 2005.
