Lock Up's History (Biography)

Lock Up is a deathgrind side project originally formed by Shane Embury (Napalm Death, Venomous Concept), Nicholas Barker (ex-Cradle Of Filth, Dimmu Borgir) and Jesse Pintado (Napalm Death, Terrorizer). Lock Up was joined by Peter Tägtgren (Hypocrisy) for its debut album, 1999's Pleasures Pave Sewers, and Tomas Lindberg (At The Gates, Disfear) for 2002's Hate Breeds Suffering and a Japanese tour.

Lock Up have played very few live shows. In 2009, the band announced that they would play the Damnation Festival that year. The line-up featured Embury, Barker, Lindberg and Reisenegger. It was touted as the bands last ever live show; however, they later booked more shows for 2010.
