The Verve Pipe is an American post-grunge band from Grand Rapids, Michigan. It was formed in 1991 by Brian and Brad Vander Ark, Brian Stout and Donny Brown. In 1992, working with producer/engineer Jon Frazer, they released their first album, I've Suffered a Head Injury. A year later, they released a second album, Pop Smear again working with Frazer that helped them gain a devoted following in their native state of Michigan and their eventual signing with RCA Records in 1995. Their first major label release was 1996's Villains, which was a minor hit and launched two respectably-selling singles, first "Photograph" then the #1 hit "The Freshmen". They came back with a new album, The Verve Pipe, in 1999. Their most recent release is 2001's Underneath.
Since the release of their last album, lead singer Brian Vander Ark has released two solo albums; 2003's Resurrection and 2006's Angel, Put Your Face On. Currently, Vander Ark can be seen playing shows around the country. No official word has been given about the current status of The Verve Pipe, although every now and then Vander Ark and some incarnation of the group will play a show together. As of now, the band is unsigned and has no public plans to release another album.
