Reach the Sky was an American hardcore punk band from Boston, Massachusetts.

History[edit]

Reach the Sky formed in 1997, and they released two EPs in 1999; their debut full-length, So Far From Home, followed on Victory Records later that same year.[1] After the release of So Far From Home, Dan Tammik left the band, and guitarist Brendan Maguire took over on bass.[2] Their second full-length, Friends, Lies, and the End of the World, was issued in 2001, and the group toured Canada after the album's release.[3] In 2002, their debut EP was remastered and reissued with bonus tracks. They broke up in 2003. In 2009, they reformed with a slightly different line up: Ian, Stu, Bob and Zach Jordan of Bane.

Bob went on to become a member of Bane, and Ian later founded Stand Accused. Stu became a touring manager, working with Sick of it All, Dropkick Murphys and The Mighty Mighty Bosstones. He currently plays in Bane.
