A cornerstone of Connecticut’s DIY screamo/hardcore scene, They and the Children started kicking around in 2002, with their first show in March of that year. Fronted by veteran show promoter Brian Frenette, featuring The Brothers Gorman on guitar and drums, all held up by the elderly father figure of Chris Perrotti switching off bass and guitar duties with Ross Menze, the band has embarked on many tours and released critically acclaimed demos, 7”s, and 12” EPs. They also contributed their song “Aphasia” to a local compilation, along with 49 other Connecticut bands called the “CT Sucks Compilation”. However, the band broke up in Septemberber of 2008, and according to Brian, “It was time to move on to other things.” Members of They and the Children currently play in Iron Hand, who have several releases under their belts. This partial discography contains their Home LP, Thoughts on Becoming A Ghost 12", their S/T Ep, and their split with Daniel Striped Tiger. Enjoy.
