LATTERMAN hail from the annals of Long Island's suburban, cultish, punk/hardcore/emo history. Born into the hands of teenagers, LATTERMAN was a band from 2000-2006 who toured all the fuck over the place and in its lifespan mostly played (too loudly) to sparse rooms. Taking heartfelt bites, often earnestly, out of hard subjects like feminism and dismantling patriarchy, and keeping corporate influence out of DIY, they were a voice for equality in an overly homogenous scene. These reverberations can be seen today in countless imitators of their playing style and hopeful lyricism. LATTERMAN was one of the few bands in their time that both spoke out on political subjects and played catchy, melodic punk rock. They briefly reunited in 2012 and again in 2016 for a handful of NY area shows, a European tour, and a few festival appearances. The band members have all gone down different and better paths with their music and bands, though their influences are easily traceable to their shared origin in DIY punk. Members of LATTERMAN currently play with Iron Chic, RVIVR, Tender Defender, Laura Stevenson, and Young Ladies.
