Braid was an emo/post—hardcore band from Illinois that formed in 1993. After forming, the band went through several line—up changes but eventually settled on: Bob Nanna on guitar and vocals, Todd Bell on bass and, Chris Broach on guitar and vocals and Roy Ewing on drums. Roy was replaced in 1997 by Damon Atkinson.

In 1999 Braid disbanded and went on to form Hey Mercedes with all band members minus Chris Broach (who went on to form The Firebird band) and adding Mark Dawsurk. The band reformed for a US tour in 2004 and, now that Hey Mercedes are defunct, apparently intend to tour sporadically. It is not yet known if Braid will be recording any more material.

After Hey Mercedes called it quits in 2005, frontman Bob Nanna began a solo project under the name The City on Film.
