Indecision formed in 1993. The band members -- guitarists Justin Brannan and Rachel Rosen, drummer Pat Flynn, bassist Steve Bago and vocalist Tom Sheehan (who was replaced by Artie Phillie in 1998) -- met while attending a Catholic high school in the Bay Ridge section of Brooklyn. Indecision played around in local clubs until the majority of the venues in their neighborhood closed down, then took a larger step and integrated themselves into the New York City hardcore scene. Relentless recording and touring kept the band relevant long after many groups from their time and space faded away. They issued a number of singles and three albums with Exit Records, Unorthodox, Most Precious Blood and To Live and Die in New York City, all of which showed off their slightly metal-tinged brand of positive hardcore (which managed to express anger and injustice without being hateful.) To Live and Die in New York City was their first album to feature Artie Phillie on vocals, but the album retained the straight-ahead style that their other releases possessed. In 1999 they tried their luck at another label, putting out Release the Cure on MIA Records. After touring through 2000, the band members burned out and felt it was time to call it quits. Indecision played their last show in El Paso, TX in May of 2000. Rachel and Justin went on to form Most Precious Blood.  Indecision got back together in 2006 with original singer, Tom Sheehan.  Since then, they have continued to play several shows a year and have had several of their albums re-released on Bitter Melody Records and Closed Casket Activities.
