"Crabgrass" - Manzanita Falls by PlanetaryOnlinePR published on 2013-03-21T00:20:05Z Manzanita Falls is a four-piece indie-rock group from San Francisco Bay Area that formed in the Fall of 2011. Manzanita Falls spent the next year playing shows locally, creating a sound that is familiar, yet wholly their own. They have elements of bands such as The National, Wilco, and The Frames, but in a way that is uniquely Manzanita Falls. Manzanita Falls' first album Vinyl Ghost is out in April of 2013, and the band will be embarking on their second tour to support it. The album was originally slated to be released in November of 2012, but the band went through a near-fatal car accident in Abilene, TX that left the drummer, Matt Coit, with a fractured neck. After months of healing, the band is ready to go and excited to be bringing their dynamic tunes and captivating performances to a national audience.
