There is an obvious heavy influence from early nineties alternative music. Primarily The Smashing Pumpkins & The Cure.
A complete definition of the term "do it yourself", they have promoted, recorded, created their website, artwork, and merch, all on their own. Their live show is very intense.
In 2006 the band had begun to record their debut LP at Sony Studios in NYC. Changing their style from the programmed drums to live drums for this effort added to their intense sound that they previously only displayed live. Their first full length, entitled The Conflict, was released on Halloween in 2006.
