Originally a solo project, Ingle began making music under the alias nevershoutnever! in 2007 (age 16). His first exposure came through the internet, where he achieved success on Myspace before issuing the extended play, The Yippee EP on July 29, 2008.[4] On July 30, 2008, he was featured on TRL, where he performed his single "Bigcitydreams."[5] He toured with Hellogoodbye and Ace Enders in the fall of 2008.[6] The spelling was later changed to 'Never Shout Never',[7] and went on to form into a full band instead of a solo project exclusive to Ingle.[8] As of October 2014, the band has gone onto release 5 studio albums and 9 EP's.[9]

Eatmewhileimhot (2008–Present)[edit]

Main article: Eatmewhileimhot

In 2008 Drew and fellow band members of Never Shout Never, Taylor McFee and Hayden Kaiser, created an experimental band by the name "Eatmewhileimhot!", originally consisting on post-hardcore influences, and on later releases experimenting their sound with metalcore, deathcore, experimental metal, and extreme metal.

Personal life[edit]

At the age of 16, Christofer became a vegetarian,[10] and eventually a vegan.[11]

Bryan Stars Incident[edit]

On June 3, 2012, Never Shout Never was interviewed by BryanStars. Ingle requested that Stars ask questions pertaining to their music; Stars was instead asking questions that he deemed the fans wanted, such as what their "Porn-Star name" would be or the best way to "break up with a girl". Ingle ended the interview, stating that Stars made a "mockery" out of the bands that he interviewed and his questions were "bullshit", leaving Stars in tears. Ingle later claimed to have taken acid before the interview and was arrested for possession of marijuana later that day.[12][13][14][15] Ingle later said that he regretted making him cry and that they had reconciled.[16]
