It was one of those things you can only liken to a badly acted "let's start a band" movie. Chris One and Trey said to Jeff, "We heard your EP and we like your songs, we should start a band." Jeff shrugged and said, "OK." (Jeff is prone to 'aloofnicity') Eric wasn't there, so he didn't really get to say anything. Nothing happened for a really, really long time. Chris One left and bass player tryouts just weren't working out very well. So Jeff, Trey and Eric, who happened to actually be there this time, said, "Screw it, let's make a CD." And they did. And it was good.They recorded it with the help of a lot of wonderful people and started to get back into the groove, adding Joe and another Chris, we'll call him Chris Two. Now they have two CDs, but you don't get to hear the new one yet, unless you're reading this after March 9th, 2006.
