Guitarist Andy Cohen and baritone guitarist Tim Midgett, both formerly of Silkworm, formed the band with drummer Chris Manfrin of Seam and bassist Brian Orchard of .22/Light Coma in 2005. Since inception the group has issued three critically acclaimed records and toured in the United States and Canada. The band also played one show in Paris to open the Villette Sonique Festival in June 2008 at the invitation of fellow Chicago-based rock trio Shellac.

"Truly transcendent." - Alternative Press
"Reveals new subtleties with every listen." - Spin
