[center]In the winter of 2008, neighbors and former enemies Michael Desmond (guitar, vocals) and Dylan Ebrahimian (violin, piano, etc.) decided to put their differences aside and write music. They got some friends together and released a self titled demo which would be played on KRock and get them openings with bands and artists like Anberlin, Craig Owens, Mae, and many others. When most of their friends went to college, Michael and Dylan solidified the band's lineup by adding Dominick Dagostino on guitar and Tom Davis on drums. With bassist Mark Herburger, the group recorded the five song ep "Your Friends and Loved Ones" with producer Mike Watts. The EP was critically well received. Spin Magazine fondly called the group "Jimmy Eat World meets The Decemberists", while Absolutepunk.net called them, "phenomenal post emo orchestral rock". In June 2009, Robbie Hassett joined the band on bass, replacing Herburger. The band then played festivals like The Bamboozle 2009 and '10 and CMJ Music Festival to more critical acclaim and toured the United States. They have opened for artists like Taking Back Sunday, Mew, Glassjaw, The Dear Hunter, As Tall As Lions, Good Old War, Person L, Nightmare of You, and many many others.
The band is currently working on their debut album.
