Beecher was a band from Manchester, England. Formed in 2001 by Daniel Plant (guitars), Will Shaw (drums) and David Hopkinson (bass), they played a mix of Metal, Hardcore Punk and Rock. The original intent was for the band to be a doom metal experiment but the recruitment of vocalist Edward Godby and guitarist Mark Lyons made a full band line-up. After the recording of a 5-track demo CD, the band released the Resention Is a Big Word EP for Nottingham based In At The Deep End Records in 2002. This was followed by the album Breaking The Fourth Wall in 2003 on Calculated Risk Records.
