Formation and Is A Demo
The band was originally formed in the summer of 2009 by Adam Dick and Sean Goodchild who met while studying at Fanshawe College. They immediately went to work on a four song demo, Is A Demo, with producer and friend, Dan Weston. The demo was released independently in June, 2009. A single, A One Man Mess, was released on iTunes on June 11, 2009.
By September, 2009 the band had grown to six full-time members. Joining Dick and Goodchild were Pat Maloney on drums, Ajay Massey on guitar, Jeremy Pimentel on bass and John Yun on keys. On Friday, September 25, 2009 they played their first ever live show, as direct support for Canadian alternative rock act, USS.
Is A Demo was later released in full on iTunes on September 1, 2010.

A single, We Get Down was released on iTunes on March 1, 2011. Two Crown King (EP) was released on iTunes on July 1, 2011. The artwork for the album was illustrated by Jacqui Oakley and has received global acclaim for its package design.
