Sever Your Ties was a post-hardcore band from San Diego, California.[1] Their first studio album, Safety in the Sea, was released on July 8, 2008 through Solid State Records. The band had been working on a comedy album and live action tour when on June 4, 2010, they announced that they were disbanding, due to the new found friendship between singer Sean Marnul and film director, Porter Min. After disbanding, singer Sean Marnul formed the comedy duo Gravy Brothers with friend Caleb Chial of The Black Keys while working with Porter Min on the set of Iron Man 2.[2]
