Singer and songwriter Jake Desrochers says,“When we started the band there was no social media. We didn’t feel the rush of the instant gratification. I felt compelled to write lyrics about the impulsive reaction to the constant barrage of other peoples thoughts, feelings and ideas. Everybody has a great reason to post about how awesome their lives are. Underneath it all we all suffer the same, everybody requires the same love and human connection.”
Formed in 1996 and reborn in 2016, the band consists of Luke Pabich (Good Riddance), Jake Desrochers (Lonely Kings), Jim Miner (Death By Stereo),Tom Kennedy (Fury 66) and Anthony Garay (Ghost Parade).
COERCION is a heavy, driving, angst ridden rock band with punk rock undertones. Powerful, expressive, engaging and relatable to anyone who likes hard edged, intoxicating music.
