The Smoking Popes have gone through the ebb and flow of being a band through the nearly 27 years since they started. Signing to Capital Records, being deemed as the greatest american band by Morrissey. Touring with Jawbreaker on their original run through Dear You. The band disbanded for 6 years from 1999-2005. The reunited popes featured all 3 Caterer brothers, but was missing original drummer Mike Felumlee. So here we are in 2018 and the original lineup is back.
