Cursive is an indie rock band from Omaha, Nebraska, on Saddle Creek Records.
The band was formed in 1995 by Tim Kasher, Matt Maginn, Steve Pedersen (all formerly of Slowdown Virginia), and drummer Clint Schnase. In 1997, they released "Such Blinding Stars For Starving Eyes ".After a few years of touring the band broke up in 1998. They posthumously released "The Storms of Early Summer: Semantics of Song " in the Fall of that year. A year later in the summer of 1999 the band reformed. Pedersen had started law school so Ted Stevens (formerly of Lullaby for the Working Class) stepped in and joined the band. In 2000, their album, Domestica, a concept album written like a one-act play documenting the lies, hate and deceit associated with a divorce, gained them much attention from fans and critics alike and they toured with At the Drive-In.
Cursive added Gretta Cohn in 2001 on cello. The strings added complimentary sounds to that summer's "Burst and Bloom". In 2002, the band toured...
