See You Next Tuesday was an American grindcore band from Bay City, Michigan. They were signed to Ferret Records, an independent record label based in New Brunswick, New Jersey. The group released two full-length studio albums through Ferret before disestablishing in 2009 due to financial problems and personal overtures. They are believed to eventually reform in the coming future.

History[edit]

See You Next Tuesday was formed in Bay City, Michigan in February 2004, the band originally started out as a joke, but when the group found their early live performances went well, they began to take their music seriously.[1] The group released two EP's with their original vocalist, Brandon "Bear" Schroder before his leaving in 2007. After Schroder's departure, Chris Fox, formerly of the metalcore band Flesh and Blood Robot took his place. With this new See You Next Tuesday line-up, they released their debut full-length album Parasite on Ferret Music. According to the band members, the album had to be recorded twice due to the loss of the original recordings in a computer crash.[2][3] The album, containing 14 tracks, was produced by Andreas Magnusson,[4] and was released on April 3, 2007 to mixed reviews[5]

They have toured extensively in the United States and Canada with a wide variety of bands, including Coalesce, Daughters,[6] August Burns Red, Chasing Victory, From a Second Story Window, The Number Twelve Looks Like You,[7] Job for a Cowboy, Suicide Silence, Winds of Plague, Despised Icon, Psyopus and The Acacia Strain.

In an interview when asked about the departure of their vocalist Brandon "Bear" Schroder, former bassist Travis Martin explained that he left for health reasons, and directly explained the following:

Bear left for a number of reasons, the main reason being his health. On the last tour he did with us he had a lot of chest pain and felt really weak by tour's end. He went to the hospital and found out his lungs were only working at a fraction of what they should have been. His doctor told him that his only option was to stop screaming, which was actually the second time he had been told. This time he thought it best to listen.[3]

In 2008, See You Next Tuesday released their second album, Intervals and it peaked at No. 46 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart. On See You Next Tuesday's MySpace profile, they stated that Intervals "may as well be their first album" as they have changed from spastic genre changes to a more focused death metal sound.[8]

Most recently, the band announced that they would be going on indefinite hiatus after their August 16, 2009 show in their hometown. In 2011, the members stated that they expressed interest in continuing See You Next Tuesday, but so far have not made any certain announcement since this time.

Meaning of the name[edit]

The phrase "See You Next Tuesday" is a popular slang meaning "cunt" because of an odd acronym of the word that results in "C U Next Tuesday". At first the band's merchandise held the initials "SYNT", to which the band later changed to "CUNT". Merchandise from the band has the initials "SYNT" and "CUNT" on different material.[citation needed]
