One Will Burn was hastily formed to play a show and fill in for a band that couldn't make it out. Atlanta band Methods of Espionage were asked to fill the slot but 2 members of the band were out of town. Still wanting to play a show and help a friend, the other half of Methods, Bassist Todd Caras and Vocalist Ross Henderson, reached out to Drummer David Goodwin, of Dark Matter Halo and Candy Apple Black. The trio decided to play a Joy Division tribute set since they had listened to the legends for years and knew the songs already. After one practice session the 1WB played and were so well received they decided to pursue the project seriously, adding Michael Church on Guitar and playing shows on a regular basis.
