About:

Cursive is an indie rock band from Omaha, Nebraska, on Saddle Creek records.

The band was formed in 1995 by Tim Kasher, Matt Maginn, and Steve Pedersen of Slowdown Virginia, along with drummer Clint Schnase. Pederson was later replaced by Ted Stevens, formerly of Lullaby for the Working Class, after a short hiatus.

Their album Domestica gained them much attention from fans and critics alike. Cursive's sound continued to evolve, most dramatically with the addition of Gretta Cohn on cello who performed on the Burst and Bloom and 8 Teeth to Eat You (split with Eastern Youth) EPs and the full–length LP The Ugly Organ.

On August 23, 2005, the band announced that Gretta would be leaving the group, however the band soldiers on and plans are underway for the band's next album due out in 2006.
