What was the year you started your first band? What was the band name? (Any photos?)
The Color Morale - Garret Rapp (Lead Singer): Steve and I started a band together in like 2004/2005 called The Killer Apathy.
Chunk No Captain Chunk - Paul Wilson (Guitar) : 2003 or 2004, the band was called Firepants (Jonathan was also playing drums in this band).
The Ghost Inside - Jonathan Vigil (Vocals) : My first band was called “A Dying Dream.” We eventually changed our name to The Ghost Inside and became the band we are today. I guess I’ve only ever been in one band. We started in 2004 and The Ghost Inside is still going strong.
Get Scared - Adam Virostko (Guitar) :1997, AGaNG
Get Scared - Bradley “Lloyd” Iverson (Guitar): 2001 Me, Nick and a couple other friends started a pop punk band called ‘Fill The Blank’
Get Scared - Dan Juarez (Drums): 2003, Here Today, Gone Tomorrow
Ice Nine Kills - Spencer Charnas (Lead Singer) : The year I started my first band, Blind Ambition, was in 1995. We played “Dive” by Nirvana and “Tomorrow” by Silverchair at my middle school talent show. My Yamaha Pacifica guitar was bigger than my whole body but I still rocked out!
Mayday Parade - Jake Bundrick (Drums) : Oh man. Back in 1999 or 2000. We were called Sucker Punch. I played guitar. We needed a drummer so that’s when I started playing drums. We have a few photos of us in Mayday’s photo book we just released.
