Anchoress came to be in 2010 and hit the ground running. Just months into their existence the band, consisting of vocalist Rob Hoover, guitarist Keenan Federico, drummer Chris Lennox-Aasen, and bassist Ricky Castanedo, pulled together their first full length, Set Sail. Anchoress quickly followed the release with a cross Canada tour. After the exhausting trek, they went right back into the studio to release their double-EP-turned-full-length album, Crime & Compass on File Under: Music. By the release of album of their second album, Anchoress became a staple of the Vancouver punk scene.
