The band's earliest beginnings started when Ryan was introduced to Andy in winter of 2007. The two had one thing in common: Make music, and go beyond the punk icon. In fact, both musicians had some roots in punk bands they'd been apart of prior to their meeting, with Andy being in Cut-Rate Saint, and Ryan being in The Dead Pawns.
Ryan, along with the late Bryant Reese on bass, had left The Dead Pa...wns in summer of '07 to try to start their project, later named "Shadowing". The project would go through a few changes before it was put on ice for the fall season. Desperate to try to find a guitarist, Ryan reached out to a fellow musician, Tyler Edwards from the Rehab Rats, who introduced Ryan and Bryant to Andy. Andy had brought along a couple of musicians (Ashley Horton and Andy "Troy" Edwards) and together, would form the new line-up for project Shadowing in December of '07.
From December '07 -July '08, the band cut 4 songs through a lot of in-fighting, eventually letting go of the rhythm guitarist, and the vocalist bowed out in summer of '08, which spelled the final word for the band. Frustrated at the in-fighting, and due to personal differences, Andy split the band up and everyone went their own way.
During the hiatus between '08-'10, a lot had happened with little contact between Andy and Ryan, but eventually the two worked out their personal differences and jammed together again in summer of '10, eventually coming together and forming With Intent in October of '10. The band started over with former vocalist (then on bass guitar) Andy "Troy" Edwards, guitarist Andy Russell, and drummer Ryan Porter. Early on, Troy left again, leaving Andy and Ryan in the band. During this time, Brittany Chrismer was elected to take his place. A music major in MAC, with little musical background, and fairly new to bass, Brittany has filled out her part thus far, and the band has written several tracks.
At this point, in July of '11, the band has finally started going public, but is looking for vocals. Who will that vocalist be? Who knows, and time will tell.
