Famous lyrics by »

Pencey Prep was a rock band formed by the ex-members of punk bands Sector 12 (Riverside Riot Records) and Stick Figure Suicide (Umbilical/Reinforcement Records). The band consisted of: Frank Iero (vocals/guitar), Shaun Simon (keys), John McGuire (bass) and Tim Hagevik (drums. They played a mix of punk rock and indie rock. The band's name is from the book The Catcher In The Rye, as stated in the band's MySpace. Pencey Prep was the name of the school that the main character, Holden, got expelled from. The band's line up included 2 guitars, keyboards, bass, drums, and vocals and has been compared to the band The Anniversary. Pencey Prep officially released their only album to date Heartbreak in Stereo on Eyeball Records in fall 2001, and disbanded shortly thereafter. Pencey Prep played shows with bands like Nada Surf, The Strokes, Thursday, New Found Glory, Brand New and many more. After the band broke up, it became difficult for new fans to find the CD. Eyeball Records re-released it in early 2007. Frank Iero finally decided to separate himself from the band in order to join the band My Chemical Romance. Frank Iero would later go on to be one of two guitarists and a backup vocalist for the band and, in a side-project, lead vocalist for Leathermouth. In 2005, John McGuire formed Brine and Bastards, a pirate influenced band, which released their first CD in February 2008.
