Album ReviewRival Schools - Pedals
Posted by Jeremy Aaron on 04/08/11
The Billboard
Rival Schools was a short-lived Post Hardcore band from New York, formed by members from several influential 80's and 90's underground bands (including Gorilla Biscuits, Quicksand, CIV and Youth Of Today).

The band decided to start a series of EPs where multiple groups form a single band and they looked to Jonah Matranga formerly of Far, New End Original and current member of Gratitude. The lone result was titled Rival Schools United by Onelinedrawing, released on 24th July 2001. Their full-length album titled United By Fate was released on 28th August the same year on Island Records. They appear to be greatly inspired by the game Rival Schools made by Capcom. Their album is named after the first game of the series, United By Fate.

Ian Love left in 2002, and played as part of an Experimental-Rock band named Cardia, releasing an eponymous album in 2003.

A second album was expected for spring/summer 2003, but it did not surface, and Rival Schools broke up in September 2003. Schreifels formed a new band, Walking Concert, releasing an album in 2004.
