Lungfish is a post-hardcore band formed in 1987 in Baltimore, Maryland. All of their music has been released by the Washington, D.C. punk label Dischord except for their first LP, Necklace of Heads which was released by Simple Machines (it was later added to the CD release of Talking Songs for Walking by Dischord).

Their line-up as of 2005 consists of Daniel Higgs (vocals, occasional guitar), Asa Osborne (guitar), Sean Meadows (bass), and Mitchell Feldstein (drums). Previous bass players are John Chriest and Nathan Bell.

Daniel Higgs sang in the 80s hardcore/punk band Reptile House and has released numerous solo works under his own name and also Cone of Light. He has recently made numerous solo performances, usually with the long-necked banjo and jaw harp (his recent albums document this as well: 2006's Ancestral Songs and 2007's Metempsychotic Melodies).[1] In 2011, Higgs also collaborated with Swedish band Skull Defekts on the album 'Peer Amid' (Thrill Jockey)

Asa Osborne has released a CD and 7" with Charles Brohawn of The Tinklers under the name Tear Jerks. Osborne also released an album on Dischord in 2002 with Daniel Higgs under the name The Pupils. In early 2008 the record label Holy Mountain announced a new solo project by Osborne called Zomes.[2]

Sean Meadows has played in numerous bands including June of 44, The Sonora Pine, and many lesser known bands from the Chattanooga, Tennessee music scene.[3]

Mitchell Feldstein has published two volumes of prose/poetry: "Hurl" on Apathy Press and "Teen Cardinal" on Shattered Wig Press. He also played drums with Arboretum

Nathan Bell played bass on Kogumaza's 'Kолокол' (2014), which featured the song 'Ursids' which was used as a double A sided single with Hookworms. Bell has also worked with David Huemann from Arboreteum on Human Bell
