How the band started and how far we've come ... Back in the dinosaur days of MySpace (2008), vocalist, Shawn Bates, posted an ad looking for musicians to start a band with who had similar musical interests at heart. Over time the sound was tweaked as they got closer to encompassing their influences while incorporating the core of what they represented. Although some of the members changed over the years, all the pieces finally came together with Shawn on the vocals, Jeff Parks, the hardest working man in Indy, on bass, the legendary Rico Edelson on lead guitar and the rest is history in the making.
