Off! was formed in Los Angeles, California in late 2009 by Circle Jerks/Black Flag singer Keith Morris, Burning Brides frontman Dimitri Coats,
Redd Kross bassist Steven Shane McDonald, and Rocket From The Crypt/Hot Snakes drummer Mario Rubalcaba. The idea to form the band
came after Coats had worked as producer on a Circle Jerks album which fell apart. During that time, Morris and Coats had written several songs
together which they used to start OFF!.
