The Philadelphia-based alt-metal quintet Liquid Gang first emerged in 1995, but fully became a performing unit in 1998 when bassist and founding member Eric Nagy, lead vocalist Jose Maldonado, and guitarists Chris Holt and Stinger decided to commit themselves to the band. Drummer Craig Smith joined shortly thereafter and Liquid Gang went on to open for bands such as Sevendust, Staind, 2 Skinny J's, and KoRn.
In 1999, they independently released an album and an EP, later signing with Lava/Atlantic. Liquid Gang released Sunshine in August 2000. ~ MacKenzie Wilson, All Music Guide
