River City Great formed from the ashes of Fun Size and Inquisition in early 1999. Structured away from Richmond, VA, the lineup of vocalist/bassist Adam Menefee, guitarists Tag Avery and Bob Anderson, and drummer Jay McMillan acquired a like for old-school rock and roll & move. Their added contact of ’90s hardcore was initially captured on the debut EP, Richmond Motel, that was released by Big Steering wheel Records in Feb 2000. Drawing the eye of Doghouse Information, the two brands exercised a offer to “talk about” the music group, and another EP, Forgets Their Manners, was consequently released that summer time. Relentless touring discovered the guys on the highway for over 200 displays annually through 2003, because the full-length Won’t IGNORE appeared in nov 2001. Their effort eventually paid with curiosity (along with a producing record offer) from MCA Information. River City Large spent another year composing and recording for his or her major-label debut, however when MCA eventually folded in 2003 (mainly assimilated by Geffen), the people were release without ever liberating the finished item; McMillan and Anderson consequently exited the group that November and Gregg Brooks (drums) and Chip Cosby (acoustic guitar) eventually changed them. Pushing ahead, River City Large issued their following record, the EP Prolonged Play, in middle-2004 by using Doghouse. The music group further received the year’s MTV2 Dew Circuit Breakout competition, eventually defeating out Mock Orange as well as the Kite-Eating Tree for the $50,000 grand reward, which they place to good make use of recording their following album. They became a member of causes with Takeover Information in nov 2006, as well as the producing Not Enough Sunday Nights premiered soon after.
