Formed after the breakups of Dying For The Cause and Thrashasaurus Rex, this band found somewhat their own sound instead of finding inspiration in the sounds of their mosh-core or melodic emo radio-rock peers. Looking somewhat back - at fast, frenzied, straight forward hardcore - this band is looking to put fun and ideas towards the forefront of their shows, and not kickboxing to look tough or standing around wondering if your fellow show-goers think you are hot.

The band saw it's finale at the end of Summer, 2006. Josh was moving to Pittsburg for college (and had been busy with Crusher), the Smither brothers were involved in CZR, and Jared had started singing for Redhanded's latest incarnation. A reunion show took place in DEecmber, 2006 and there may be more in the future.
