Communiqué are a band from Oakland, California but guitarist-songwriter Rory Henderson, bassist John Peck, guitarist Ryan Massey and drummer Jamie Kissinger have been playing music together since they were teenage friends in the San Francisco suburbs. In 1995, the friends collected themselves into the punk band American Steel and quickly conquered the hearts and ears of the underground punk scene, refining jagged kinetic in Vet's Halls, backyards and warehouses from Berkeley to Tampa, Boston to Phoenix.
