The Undecided

Pop Punk
Steinbach, Manitoba, Canada

The Undecided formed as a punk band in 1994 with Matt Faston (vocals), Steve Dueck (drums), John Paul Peters (guitar), and Mike Kehler (bass). In 1996 they released a demo CD which they called Orange Album, and toured briefly before becoming inactive.

The group reformed in 1997 with bassist Dan Thomas. They signed with Christian Rock label Tooth & Nail Records. They were the first Canadian group to be signed by Tooth & Nail. They released The Undecided in 1999, and toured in Canada and the US in support of the album. Copies of the band's previously released punk music were no longer being sold.

In April 2001 the band played a large concert at the Winnipeg arena. Later that year they released the album More to See.

Peters has gone on to produce records for other bands, including The Waking Eyes. Thomas was formerly a member of Gooch.
