Unconcerned that they had no songs written or even a full band put together, Time Again vocalist Daniel Dart and guitarist Elijah Reyes booked themselves some shows in the summer of 2004 and began a heavy promotional campaign of stickers and flyers all around Los Angeles.
It wasn't until a few days before their first gig that the entire group even came together. Time Again -- a punk revivalist band with old-school aesthetics and a sound akin to Rancid -- was officially born. The guys continued to play in and around their hometown, eventually issuing their self-titled EP on Rancid Records the next June. Expanding in 2005 to venues outside of California, the group found itself sharing stages with bands like Offspring, Dropkick Murphys, Social Distortion, the Circle Jerks, the Aquabats, and the Adolescents, to name a few. Their hard work quickly paid off, inking a deal with Hellcat Records (the Tim Armstrong-run Epitaph imprint) by January 2006. Their full-length debut, The Stories Are True, surfaced that April, followed over the coming years by 3 more. Rumor has it, Daniel Dart is working on a new album, yet to be titled.
