Founded: 2007

Style : rock

Influenced by: Thrice, Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Saosin

Notable: Because the band members come from varying musical backgrounds, it was tough for them to settle on a cohesive sound, Klicos said. They worked on their debut full-length album, Love & Malice, for about six months before releasing it last November. It will soon be available on a range of digital music providers.

Quotable : "It took us a while to figure out how to combine everybody and not just make it sound like noise," Klicos said. "It's our passion. It's our baby. We worked on it forever and ever and ever until we were all completely satisfied with it."
