Cadillac Blindside was an punk rock band from Minneapolis, Minnesota, United States.


Cadillac Blindside formed in 1997.[1] They were a punk rock group, which shared, according to AllMusic biographer MacKenzie Wilson, "indie rock qualities similar to the likes of At the Drive-In, the Get Up Kids, and the Dillinger Four."[1] The band composed of Zachary Zrust (vocals, guitar), James Russell (vocals, guitar), Trent Raygor (bass), and Rebecca Hanten (drums).[1] Their debut album, Read the Book Seen the Movie, was released in late 2000 by Soda Jerk.[1]

They were signed to Fueled by Ramen of Gainesville, Florida. The band broke up in 2002. Zrust went on to form Fuel The Fire. Russell and Hanten went on to form The Cardinal Sin. Trenton went on to form Monarques.

The group reunited in 2016. They supported Motion City Soundtrack on their farewell tour.[2]
