Ceremony is John Fedowitz, Fredericksburg Virginia | East Coast.
He started the band in 2005 with his friend Paul Baker. They both were members of Skywave, a band that had a big impact on American Shoegaze in the late Nineties and early Two thousands. After the band broke up John and Paul started their new project, naming it after a Joy Division song. They developed a new sound mainly based on drum computer, bass and guitar. Ceremony released a couple of splits, EPs and 7’, but the first big acknowledgment came with their LP Rocket Fire. Soon after the release Ceremony played 8 shows in Tokyo/Japan together with their friends of Screen Vinyl Image. Ceremony kept on releasing more smaller projects that were all brought together in Safranin Sounds in 2011. That year Ceremony went on their first European tour including a live drummer for the very first time. Europe fell in love with Ceremony and the band was invited on another European tour in 2012. This time with a second bass guitar player: Chris Carr. Paul left the band in 2013, their drummer Ben Wood followed him shortly after. John and Chris played several gigs together, back to the initial set up with bass guitar, guitar and drum machine. In 2014 John decided to release a new LP called Distance. It was his first solo release. He enjoyed recording his very own songs. But after playing a couple of shows he lost interest in playing live without the fun of other band members on stage. In 2016 his friend Oliver Ackermann asked John to join A Place to Bury Strangers and John played drums on their 2016 European tour. Soon after that Ceremony got the offer to tour Europe again together with Alex Kelman. 2017 John went on a five weeks tour joined by Sandra Fedowitz on drums and James Day on bass guitar. Latest then John caught fire again. Back home he recorded the LP EAST COAST within a month. The new record was self released (candybooking) in late May 2018. The album release tour brought the band (incl. Stephen Sullivan on base guitar) to Asia in May 2018. John Fedowitz is ready to rock again. Join the ride!
