Tilt was an American punk rock band from the East Bay, California, United States, formed in 1992. The group's debut studio album, Play Cell, was released through Lookout Records in 1993. They would soon after get signed to Fat Wreck Chords, which the rest of its albums were released through. The band consisted of Cinder Block (vocals), Jeffrey Bischoff (guitar), Pete Rypins (bass), Vincent Camacho (drums). Starting on February 15, 1994 at the Cattle Club in Sacramento CA and ending on April 6, 1994 in Vancouver Tilt supported Green Day on their Dookie tour.
Tilt's song "Crying Jag" appears on the soundtrack for the film Glory Daze (1996). Tilt broke up for a short time in 1996 but reunited in 1997 with Jimi Cheetah of Screw 32. They were scheduled to play a one-night-only reunion show on May 13, 2011 at 924 Gilman Street in Berkeley, California but had to cancel because the bass player injured his arm needing surgery. So far the show has not been rescheduled.
