The American indie pop and rock band COIN was created in 2012, by four schoolmates of Belmont University, in Nashville, Tennessee. Firstly, Chase Lawrence and Joe Memmel became the vocalist and the guitarist of the group respectively. They were joined by Ryan Winnen (drums) and Zachary Dyke (bass) and they began recording their first songs.
After they performed in various small venues of the area, COIN started to gain fans and the group decided to release its first EP named “Saturdays” in 2012. It was followed by “1992” next year, while they recorded also the song “It’s Okay” which wasn’t included in an album. Their homonymous album came out in the summer of 2015, with the song “Run” to separate. COIN continued touring in order to promote their first album, while their next release was the song “Talk Too Much”, which reached no. 8 on the US Alternative Songs chart and became part of their second album “How Will You Know If You Never Try” which came out in April of 2017.
Coin have recorded at least three new songs that came out before the release of their third album, which is expected to be released in the following months. In 2018, the touring bassist Matt Martin took Dyke's place, since the latest decided to deal mainly with engineering and production.
