Botch was a four-piece mathcore/metalcore band from Tacoma, Washington, United States, that formed in 1993 and disbanded in 2002.


The band released two full-length albums and a handful of smaller releases including several singles and an EP. Its members went on an indefinite hiatus to form Roy, Russian Circles, Minus the Bear, Narrows, and These Arms are Snakes among others. Decibel magazine inducted We Are the Romans into its Hall of Fame in November 2005.

Hydra Head Records has released four new Botch items since the time of the band's breakup. Included are Unifying Themes Redux, a collection of early 7" songs, compilations, and other rarities. A long-awaited DVD and CD release of Botch's last ever performance at Seattle's Showbox, entitled 061502, was released on December 5, 2006 by Hydra Head Records.[4]


Concerning any plans for a reunion, the band has stated on their official MySpace page: Template:Cquote
