Originally conceived as a writing project, Derek D reached out to old friend and vocalist, Purple, to collaborate on his vast collection of material. It started as emailing tracks back and forth until the demo tapes were done. Then they enlisted a guitarist and drummer(Derek D's former bandmates, Brent Andres and Josh Gray) to perform a few shows and tighten up the material before recording the first album, Threshold
A handful of shows lead to a short Canadian tour to support the album.
During the recording of the second album Love Suicide Machine , Brent parted ways with the band and special guest guitarists were brought in to complete the project.
The core band still features drummer Josh Gray, Vocalist Derek "Purple" Gerbrand and Derek D on bass, lead and rhythm guitars, keyboards, vox and more.
