The Matches Bio:

The Matches are a United States-based pop punk band formed in 1997 in Oakland, California. The band was composed of vocalist and rhythm guitarist Shawn Harris, lead guitarist and backup vocalist Jonathan Devoto, bassist and backup vocalist Dylan Rowe (who replaced Justin San Souci in 2008), and drummer Matt Whalen. The Matches have released four studio albums and five singles, and currently are unsigned after their contract with Epitaph Records expired.

On July 9, 2009, the Matches announced on their MySpace and Facebook pages that they were taking a "hiatus", saying that, "our time to start new projects has come". On 17 June 2010 Shawn confirmed to Triple J that he had left the band.
