The Cost (band)

The Cost (band)

The Cost was a San Francisco Bay Area band active between 1999 and 2003. They released an EP on New Disorder Records, a split 7" with Canadian punk band d.b.s., an album on Lookout! Records, and were featured on several compilations over the years. They toured extensively on the west coast, mainly in the Pacific Northwest, and also across the United States. The tours were exhausting and often ill-fated due to broken vans and being stranded in small cities [Too Much Freakin School! Not Enough Rock!] [Interview on] , but nevertheless fun, if marginally rewarding. The Cost played their last show at Berkeley's 924 Gilman Street, the venue they called home, on July 5, 2003.

Members of The Cost later played in Communique and Natomas. Guitarist Sean McArdle went on to record and release solo material.
