Latterman was a four-piece punk rock band from Huntington, New York. They played a style of melodic punk rock with shouted dual-vocals by Phil Douglas and Matt Canino, and their songs often contain political and/or socially conscious lyrics. The band has been compared to the likes of Against Me!, The Lawrence Arms, Hot Water Music and Fifth Hour Hero.[citation needed]

On October 18, 2007, music website Punknews.org reported that the band has officially broken up.[1] The band issued a statement which indicated a number of reasons for the split, including turmoil with their label and misinterpretation of the band's message and intentions.

Members have since gone on to play in bands including Shorebirds, Mutoid Men, Iron Chic, Bridge and Tunnel, RVIVR, Laura Stevenson and The Cans, Daytrader and The Brass.

Reunion Shows[edit]

In late July 2011, Punknews.org confirmed with the band[2] that they would be playing four shows in early December. The lineup will be the "No Matter Where We Go...", "Turn Up The Punk..." lineup, consisting of Phil Douglas, Matt Canino, Pat Schramm and Mike Campbell.

As of July 31, 2012 Latterman has also been confirmed to do a reunion appearance at Gainesville, Florida's 11th annual Fest at the end of October.
