Unwound

About

Unwound is an American post-hardcore band based in Tumwater and Olympia, Washington. The group was strongly associated with the label Kill Rock Stars, with whom they were active throughout the 1990s until their dissolution in 2002. Often classified as noise rock in addition to post-hardcore, Unwound played a sharply dissonant and angular style that made use of unusual guitar tones. The band toured frequently, gaining notability for favoring "all ages" venues and their strong DIY ethic. Unwound spawned numerous side projects.
