Back in Connecticut, long time friends Matthew and Chris were remarkably average guitar players. On a brisk Spring day, Matthew decided that the two should start a band because it might be cool. Matthew, being only slightly better, secured his title as Guitarist and made Chris buy a drum set at a garage sale from a local 12 year old. Chris was then tasked to learn how to play drums in his Grandma's basement. Two weeks after setting up shop in Grandma's Jam House, they played their first gig, began to discover their sound, and eventually threw their bags into the back of a 01’ Subaru Forester and headed out Seattle-way.
