Early Days

In 1997, Quinn Allman, Jeph Howard, and Branden Steinecekert played together in hopes of becoming a band. It later came to realization that they needed a singer in order to get anywhere. Jeph then decided to switch from bass, to vocals. After playing a couple of songs, they noticed how horrible they sounded without a bassist. Jeph then switched back to bass, and they decided to host auditions in order to find the singer they wanted. What they did was have a person sing while they played a random beat. After about 50 or so auditions, Bert McCracken, a classmate at Quinn's school showed up and gave his performance. After the show, they knew that he was the one they were looking for. They decided to call him up, and asked him to join, which he did.


Band didn't officially form until January, 2001.
