New York glam-punks Libertine were led by frontman Belvy K, previously a member of 7 Seconds, UK Subs and D Generation. Guitarists Jamie Coville and Bobcat, bassist Pete and drummer Corey Koniz completed the band's early lineup, which made its debut on the Buffalo stop of the 1997 Warped Tour; Bobcat and Pete were replaced by guitarist Justin Splits and bassist Paul Lent in time for Libertine's debut EP, 1998's Rise Above. The single "Left for Dead" soon followed, and in late 1999 the group released the full-length See You in the Next Life; the follow-up EP Guttersnipe Glamour was recorded with new drummer Stephen Maicior.
