Speed the Plough is a New Jersey-based chamber pop/indie rock band that has been playing since 1984. The band rose out of the ashes of The Trypes, a mainstay of the early 80's Hoboken scene, which included most members of The Feelies, many of whom continued with STP through that band's first decade. Speed the Plough has released 8 full-length albums (on Coyote/Twin-Tone, East Side Digital, and Bar-None Records), a limited edition single on the French label Acetone, and a self-released EP. They have had songs featured in two independent films, Strangest Dreams (1990) and Paradise Park (1993). Their 2013 release, "The Plough & The Stars" (Bar-None) is a 30 year retrospective of the band. Their seventh album – "Now" – marked the relaunch of ground-breaking label Coyote Records in early 2016. And their eighth album, "…And Then," was released in 2018.
