The Cascadian Divide was born in early 2020 during the COVID lockdown as a fun side project for our lead singer, Tim de la Norton, who had never before sung in a band. What started as an experiment soon evolved into a full-blown passion for all of us. The original lineup was a merger of the bands Longward and Regional Faction, and we drew inspiration from 90s skate-punk mixed with melodic pop-punk and harmonic hardcore.
In 2022, our first drummer, Jared Clay, left to pursue a job promotion in San Diego, but we were fortunate to find our current drummer, Billy Craig, who is an absolute powerhouse and a perfect fit for the band. Later that year, we said goodbye to both Jeff Schellhase (our first bassist) and Tyler Hoggatt (our first lead guitarist), but fate smiled upon us when we met our new bassist, Mike Campbell, and our new lead guitarist, Geoff Rey.
Through it all, we've remained committed to making fast, melodic punk rock that's influenced by the skate punk and pop punk of the 90s and 2000s. Our sound is raw, energetic, and full of heart. Fans of Pennywise, Bad Religion, NOFX, Lagwagon, and Propagandhi will feel right at home with our music.
We're currently working on our second album and planning live performances in and around Seattle. Our goal is to go on tour in late 2023 or spring of 2024. Thanks for checking us out, and we hope to see you at one of our shows soon!
