The Jackpine Snag
The Jackpine Snag
The Jackpine Snag started in Sept 2010. Joe Hart contacted Nick Merz and Todd Karinen about jamming some newer stuff he had worked out, and it immediately took off. within a few weeks of rocking in Joe's basement, they had 5 or 6 songs. now, they needed a name. after talking to his dad, who used to be a forest ranger, Joe really like the story about how jack pines can grow into one another and then die, leaving a nasty looking growth of wood, or a snag. so the name came from there. The Jackpine Snag played the first show in Feb of 2011. they played shows throughout the rest of the year, until Nick decided he was going to move to Boise Idaho at the end of the year. after Nick left, Joe and Todd recruited Greg Lamb to fill the bass slot. after acclimating himself to the music, the band continued with their lucky streak of playing on great bills, which still is going today. in Feb of 2013, they released a 7" ep called The Omega Stump. they played out that ep and some other newer songs throughout the year, going back in the studio in the fall of 2013. they then recorded what would become The Fire Tower ep, this would be released in 2014. but in early 2014, Greg Lamb decided to leave the band, and Todd and Joe once again were uncertain about the future. after a hiatus, they again decided to venture forward, this time with Jason Roedel manning the bass, whom they knew from playing in the Lansing band Dozic. The Fire Tower ep was released digitally in june 2014, with a 7inch version released in september. the band has been going stronger than ever since.
