Ever the Optimist first formed in spring 2011 when they we're requested to play at their school prom, after a swift change of bassist, Matt Lloyd was added to the line up and they began their weekly practice.
After completing their first show at the year 11 prom, the guys decided they would remain as a band and keep making music, and this they did.
the latter half of 2011 they spent writing songs and preforming their favourite covers such as A Whole Child Ago by Biffy Clyro and in the turn of the new year, they applied to play in the surface festival. the next few months was spent practising and recording their first EP. then came the shows for the surface festival, in which they have so far mad it to the regional finals in birmingham. And to this day they continue to play the music they love, and let me tell you. watch this space!
