Formed in 2014 in Lyon, France, around five boys not full of future but accustomed to the punk-rock circuit for more than 15 years, Raincheck is influenced by the American punk-rock/hardcore melodic wave of the 90's/2000 (NOFX, Descendents, Lifetime, Kid Dynamite, Shook Ones...). After a few compositions and several warm-up tours in bars and concert halls in Lyon, a first EP "True Love"" is released in 2016, and a vinyl version will follow with the help of several D.I.Y. labels, including their own, Joe Cool Records, founded for the occasion. This opus, well received by the French scene, will allow them to perform all over France / Belgium / Switzerland, from Brussels to Lausanne, via Strasbourg, Montpellier, Clermont-Ferrand, etc. or Marseille and several times in Paris, the capital.
On the strength of this locally recognized international success, Raincheck has been able to open several times for groups such as Lagwagon (Ninkasi Kao, Lyon), Good Riddance (Warmaudio, Lyon), Frenzal Rhomb (Gibus, Paris), or the bosses of Burning Heads (MJC Ô Totem, Rilleux-la-Pape), and has done so every times not too badly out, against all odds. At the end of 2019, the band goes into the studio to record "Last Call", their second EP, six tracks but only hits.
