About Discipline

"There is no doubt in my mind that one of the most important bands to come out of America in the last 25 years is Discipline," writes New Zealand based rock journalist Kev Rowland in his ProgArchives review of Discipline's "This One's for England." Recorded live in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, the 2014 double album is Discipline's follow-up to their 2011 studio release, "To Shatter All Accord."

Discipline's 1997 CD "Unfolded Like Staircase" is considered by some to be the best American progressive rock album of the 1990s. Brian Watson of the Dutch Progressive Rock Pages goes further: "Unfolded is my favourite progressive rock album of all time. In over 30 years of listening, and out of a collection touching 1500 albums, Unfolded Like Staircase is ‘the one’."

For all the band's critical success, however, Discipline seldom performs live. Even in their hometown of Detroit, a Discipline performance is known to be a rare occurrence. Popps Packing will help to buck the trend when they invite Discipline onto their Hamtramck stage September 20th. Graem Whyte, co-owner of Popps Packing, also created the cover art for Discipline's album, "To Shatter All Accord."
