After spending time with the Taking Back Sunday, songwriting duo John Nolan and Shaun Cooper broke away and became Straylight Run. Stilllacking a permanent drummer or another guitarist, Straylight Run was in a small rut. That problem was soon fixed with the addition of Will Noon as apercussionist, and John's sister Michelle on piano and guitar. And most importantly, backup vocals. Signing under Victory Records (The same craplabel who brought you Hawthorne Heights), Straylight Run's self titled debut was released in 2004 under much hype and incredible expectations. Theresult: An album with some emotion that would make the band's debut one of the better albums of 2004. They released their EP, Prepare to BeWrong in late 2005.
