History Edit

The band originated in the Winter of 2012, with Dallas Taylor (Maylene and the Sons of Disaster, Underoath) on Vocals, Sean Sundy (XDISCIPLEX A.D., Jesus Wept, Shockwave) on Guitars, Adam Salaga (XDISCIPLEX A.D., Jesus Wept, Shockwave), on Guitars, and Matt Clark (Maylene and the Sons of Disaster, Sleeping by the Riverside, Underoath) on Drums.[1][2] The band released two singles, "Sweet Centralia" and "Red Eye".[1][3]

However, on August 2, 2016, Taylor was severely injured in an ATV accident, which resulted in his bands all going on hiatus. Taylor broke all the bones in his face, cracked his skull, as well as bleeding in his brain, a blocked carotid artery, broke his arm, which required him to get plates, ripped his left ear to the canal, blood on his lungs, and lung atrophy due to the ventilator, broke his upper and lower jaw, had a trauma stroke, can no longer produce tears from his eyes, and lost vision in his left eye.[4]
