The Calling is a band formed in Los Angeles, California. The band started off with Alex Band (vocals) and Aaron Kamin (guitars) after the pair became friends as teenagers (Kamin was dating Band's sister at the time), and signed a development deal with RCA. Their first album Camino Palmero, issued in July 2001, became a hit on the strength of its single, "Wherever You Will Go". New touring members joined after the album was recorded: Sean Woolstenhulme (guitars), Billy Mohler (bass) and Nate Wood (drums).
Band and Kamin returned in June 2004 with Two. New touring musicians were hired - Daniel Damico on guitar, Justin Derrico on Guitar, Corey Britz on Bass and Justin Meyer on Drums. In June 2005 the band announced they were going on hiatus and Alex Band announced plans to publish a solo album. Alex has now finished recording his album, entitled "We've All Been There". It will be released in May 2010, with the first single "Tonight" to be released in February. Alex has also pre released the album through a bracelet line called Blackstar Bracelets, which can be purchased at a number of department stores in the US as well as online: http://www.blackstarbracelet.com
