Dorsey and Jackson sought each other out and founded the group. They have almost a dozen songs written and plan on going into the studio to record them for a debut album soon, Dorsey said. It should be released by January.

"We have some really supportive fans that come to every one of our shows," Dorsey said. "'They're just like 'When are you going to have the record? When are you going to have the record?' We can't really put it off any longer. It could get pretty testy."
