In the Year 2006 band members Drew and Ricky formed a punk band named The Targets. The Targets played for most of 2006 and played local shows around Orange County and shared the stage with some punk rock legends such as Rancid, The Germs and many more. After some disputes with some of the other members of the band, Ricky and Drew left the band and created a new project named WMD. WMD played from 2007 through 2010, and in 2009 came out with a full length Album "The Takeover". WMD played many shows up and down the coast, playing many clubs with many legendary punk bands including Agent Orange, The Dickies, Dr. Know, Total Chaos and many more. Things were going well, but in 2010 Drew left WMD to do service in Eastern Europe. He lived in Bulgaria for 2 years and returned in late 2012. Shortly after the return home, Drew and Ricky started practicing again, writing new songs expecting to release a new WMD album. After a practice with new members Taylor and Grant, they decided it was a time for change in the name. The Gringoz was formed with Drew on vocals and guitar, Ricky on Guitar, Grant on Bass, and Taylor on drums. On December 20th The group played a show as WMD's last show and The Gringoz first show. The Gringoz are planning to release their first EP "The Wrath Of The Gringoz" by the end of the year 2012. 2013 looks to be a promising year with a new EP and a upcoming summer tour.
