The Crownhate Ruin was a short-lived post-hardcore band from Washington, D.C.. Formed by ex-Hoover members Fred Erskine and Joe McRedmond, the band also featured Vin Novara (ex-1.6 Band) on drums.


Hoover disbanded after a 1994 US tour. That same year the Crownhate Ruin began touring and recording what would eventually become a collection of singles, as well as a split with Boston band Karate. In 1996 they released their only full-length album, Until the Eagle Grins, on Dischord Records before splitting up later that year.

Later on, the three members would collaborate on recordings or in performances for The Boom, HiM, and The Sorts. Erskine went on to join June of 44 before Hoover reunited.[1]
