Formed 2014 in CA
By Kim Conlan & Rain Avilez
A discussion about our mutual love of metal,sparked by Black Sabbath playing at a local record shop, initiated our friendship and led to more ego-less discussions about our respect and appreciation for all Genres and artists.
9 months and a handful of living-room jams later(performing cover songs by Little Joy,The Strokes,Regina Spector,Mastodon,Black Sabbath)
, our complimenting musical abilities led us towards discussing experimental collaborations as a duet and the re-composing of previous individually recorded demos.
We met once more mid-December 2013 and Decided it was time to assemble a live band for shows in 2014.
After a roulette of local friends and artists were tried.We were graced by Dave Alcala of "The Relative Strangers" on Piano ,Pedro Mancillas on Bass & Tommy Steenrod on Drums.
Both from the band "Mounds Of Earth"
We established our first rehearsal Jan 14, 2014
Booked a local residency,Starting February 14 ,2014
