Taking their name from the main character in the 1986 BMX movie [RoviLink="VW"]Rad, Cru Jones came together in 2001 in Florida. Relocating a few years later to Syracuse, NY, their passionate hybrid of post-hardcore and emo was at times reminiscent of Fugazi or early Coalesce; their dynamic songs, coupled with relentless touring and an aggressive live show, helped the guys build a loyal grassroots following. The band -- comprised of brothers Terry (vocals) and Mike Bloom (drums), Tyler Miller (guitar), and Stephen Lamberti (bass) -- released their full-length debut, The Conversation, on Undecided Records in 2004. The album was well received and the band followed up in late summer 2005 with the acoustic EP A Roadside View. Various member changes occurred, and by this time, the group included the brothers Bloom with bassist Phil Christensen and guitarists Tim Shore and Travis Fitzsimmons. ~ Corey AparPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
