In case you didn’t notice, Cerce is dead. Cerce will always be dead. Cerce will never be a band ever again nor will we ever collectively play music in the future. It’s over and has been for a year now. All potential was completely exhausted and we could no longer function to create music together. For an account of why Cerce is dead and why it shouldn’t affect you personally, you can read this blog post I wrote recently.
TIME WARP TO PRESENT DAY…
4/5ths of the members of Cerce renamed the band and started playing new music under the name lovechild. lovechild is still very active and will continue to be. If you liked the music Cerce created during our short existence, chances are you’ll might like lovechild as well unless you really hate us which is also totally fine.
We released our first record as lovechild, “In Heaven, Everything is Fine.”, on Mayfly Records in March 2014. You can order it from Mayfly, Deathwish, RevHQ, amongst other distributors. We are currently writing and recording for a few future releases as well so stay posted.
at the woodshop in Long Island, January 2014.
All of the current members of lovechild (and likewise: most of Cerce) are also playing in the indie rock / dreampop band Burglary Years, which has been a thing since 2011 and you may have seen us post about it in the past. The debut Burglary Years LP, which has been in production for the past two years, will be released ideally by the end of 2014.
I uploaded every single Cerce flier I could find here. There are a few missing due to the layout of Facebook events changing and those fliers being gone forever unless someone saved them, but I think this is a roughly 90-95% complete archive.
Also, I am uploading every Cerce recording here as a hard-archive rather than Bandcamp. This webpage will expire in 2015 which is a-okay because it deserves to, but you can still browse it in the meantime. I am also currently remixing and remastering both Teen Bible and our side of the Leer split as I stumbled upon the Pro Tools sessions recently on an old external hard drive and decided to do them sonic justice. I will probably update this post when that happens.
Adieux, the final Cerce record, is still not quite done. It’s pretty much 98% there, but honestly working on that record makes me feel super uncomfortable and it’s very difficult to make progress with. We recorded it over a year ago to this day so maybe if I keep telling myself I’ll finish it, I will. I’m aiming to randomly upload it to Bandcamp sometime within the next few months when I have more free time. It is NOT up on my priority list right now. There will be no physical release of the album and Becca still isn’t on it which is why we still refer to it as a C_RC_ record. It was intended to be a Cerce record and definitely doesn’t have anything to do with lovechild but shit hit the fan, obviously. Stay posted for that, too, but not too posted or else you’d probably just get anxious waiting.
Thank you for the continued support. Thank you so much for continuing to care about the music we all created as Cerce. Thank you for continuing to support us moving forward as lovechild.
P.S.: Please, for the love of all things holy, never pay more than $8-10 for an old Cerce shirt. I see people trying to make a profit off used and old band merchandise all the time and it makes me sick. Merch flippers are fucking con artists.
