Coffin Break

Coffin Break (1987-1994) is a Punk band from Seattle, Washington, USA.


eattle hardcore metal-heads Coffin Break made their mark on America in the late 1980s and early 1990s. They shied away from the grunge trend of the Northwest, instead drawing their inspiration from punk. 'C/Z Records' proved to be their biggest supporters, issuing three of their albums and reissuing their first two albums as a single disc. The band issued their first two albums, Psychosis and Rupture in 1989 and a previous live EP Noise Patch b/w Boxes 'N Boxes/ Obsession all featuring David Brooks (drums), Peter Litwin (guitar/vocals) and Rob Skinner (bass/vocals). The albums did well enough to earn them a contract with 'Epitaph' to release their follow-ups of, Crawl (1991) and Thirteen (1992); the final album featuring Jeff Lorien on guitar. Simultaneously, 'C/Z Records' released a singles and outtakes collection titled, No Sleep 'til the Stardust Motel (1991). The band suddenly announced it's break up in 1994.

Immediately after Coffin Break split, Peter Litwin went on to form Softy with members of Gruntruck and Hammerbox. Softy put out a 7" on Seattle's 'Y Records' and released a full length CD on 'Negative Feedback Records'. Softy called it quits in 1998. After a long musical hiatus, Litwin would return in the band Plaster in 2004 featuring members of RC5 and Flamethrower.
