Started on November 17,2009, Unicorn Prance was created by Eric McLean and Tristan Partain. We chose Unicorn Prance as the name, because we wanted our band to have a name that would stick out. Aaron Rogers later joined. We had a position for a bassist and another guitarist. But after many considerations for those roles, we decided to get rid of the second guitarist position. We went a year without a bass player. Then bassist/clean vocalist , Alex Lee, joined the band.
