Ever since George picked up his first guitar at 14, he was determined to share his story with the world. While honing his chops playing mainstream rock, blues and metal, he was also writing songs on his own time. "Basically, I had these handful of songs that I would work on when not doing stuff with GaGaSdaN or Fall of Idols. It didn't fit the canon of either group, so I just kept it for my own personal use.

He contiuned to do one off shows in between gigs with GaGaSdaN. When that band hiatused in 2008, he decided to also halt ASF temporarily. "I was going through a lot of personal crap and kinda had to take a step back from the music thing, but I still kept playing my guitar, albeit to an audience of no one."
Fast forward to late summer 2011, where we see Gutierrez as one half of the guitar-slinging duo in Fall of Idols. They released their debut EP, saw a show in LA come and go, weathered member changes and relocation. "For a second there, I realized FoI needed to heal and rebuild, so I saw this as a perfect time to re-visit ASF." Gutierrez polished a few old gems and penned some new tunes and hit the studio with longtime friend Gibbz Amador. "Despite all the past stuff, the brothers Amador and I are still tight. We're friends for life. Gibbz approached me and offered to help. So I said 'Sure, let's do this!' The rest, is history..."
