SS Cardiacs was a Canadian indie rock band, briefly active in the early 2000s. It consisted of Jessie Stein on vocals and guitar, Andy Lloyd on bass and Dana Snell on drums.
Formed in Toronto in 2004, the band released its sole album, Fear the Love, on Blocks in 2005. Stein's brother, José Miguel Contreras of By Divine Right, also participated in the album's recording. Shortly after the album's release, Lloyd and Snell left the band due to internal tensions, and Stein instead toured to support the album with a lineup that included Leon Taheny, The Meligrove Band's Mike Small and Owen Pallett. The group released one last track entitled "Oh No!" via the Volume II 7" vinyl compilation on Out Of Touch Records.
Stein subsequently retired the SS Cardiacs name, and went on to join Miracle Fortress and to form a new band, The Luyas.
