Started in a dorm room at UC Irvine in October 2004 from laptops demos of Andrew Capra (ex Halfway To Nowhere). Roommate Mark Mikin started working with Capra. They recruited Jojo Casillas (ex Thirty Two) for drums, and dorm-mate Marlo Pabon for guitar. In January 2005 the band recorded a 2-track demo with Robert Lerdsuwanrut (ex Broken Front) in Covina, CA @ Ample Studios, and decided to recruit him on lead guitar in place of Pabon. The band played its first show February 18, 2005 at a smoothie shop in Rancho Cucamonga, CA.
