History[edit]

Controversy in promoting 3rd album[edit]

In July 2014 the band received negative attention for a publicity stunt to promote their 3rd album, "The World Is My Enemy Now", where the band reported that frontman Danny Leal was missing.[4] The band later posted the album cover fort their yet unreleased 3rd album, which showed Leal tied up in the background, thus revealing the whole angle to be a joke, since then the band refused to apologize.[5]
