From Facebook: “Fate brought us together. I believe it was at a Crucified show that Peter and Mike decided to start the band. Soon after Shane (bassist for Unashamed) gave Dave Kevin's phone number and Kevin met up with the band at the NIV/POD show in Oceanside. Dave and Garrett knew each other from playing in Change for the Better. American Holocaust our first demo was soon released. After playing all over Southern California and rocking socks off of many fans Dave and Impact went their separate ways. Josh was introduced to us by Scott Silleta of Plankeye. Having a great attitude and being a good guitarist he naturally fit the band. Within a few months we were asked to record for the Tooth and Nail Helpless Amongst Friends 2 compilation. While planning our first tour, Garrett realized he was going to leave the band and focus on his career as a firefighter. Although it was hard for all of us, we knew this was what was best for Garrett. Shortly after, Sean joined the band. Within weeks our second demo Striking Distance was released but due to personal conflicts with in the band we ended the band soon after. Everyone went on to develop many other music projects. On July 6th 2003 our old friend Josh Korkowski and later on known as tattoo artist “Frankie Four eyes” ended his own life. Rest in peace brother you will live forever in our hearts and memories. Never Forget.”
