This quartet was formed in late September 2008 by singer/guitarist Erik Hamel and drummer Ryan Racine through the need to compete musically with a rival Durham band. Lead guitarist Spence McComb joined soon after Erik and Ryan began to jam, and the three quickly realized that they would need to incorporate a solid bassist to strengthen the rhythm section. The original suggestion was preoccupied at the time, but luckily for Erik and Spence, Ryan knew another candidate, Matt Woodbeck. When the quartet played together for the first time they immediately flourished and after completing outstanding commitments to a show known only as “Bobfest”, The Pants emerged headstrong, fully prepared and eager to perform, write, and prove themselves as a force to be reckoned with.
