Mid-tempo emo that is slower and less theatrical than their labelmates and musical peers. Formed by former rivals Mike Carden (guitar) and William Beckett (vocals) in the Chicago area, and were joined by bassist Adam Siska, guitarist Adrian LaTrace Jr., and drummer Mike DelPrincipe. They were signed to Fueled By Ramen Records, and shortly after writing their debut album, Almost Here, DelPrincipe was replaced by Andy "The Butcher" Mrotek and LaTrace was replaced by Tom Conrad. The band continued to tour and after Warped Tour 2006, Tom Conrad left the band and was replaced by Austrailian guitarist Michael Guy Chislett. The band immediately went into the studio to record their sophmore album, SANTI, and have since been touring on a large scale, from the Honda Civic Tour with Fall Out Boy in the summer of '07 and their own headlining tour (Sleeping With Giants) in the fall. « hide
