After developing in ’09 2009, they self-released their debut EP, Youngsters Battle, in January of 2011. The group developed a group of fans through solid local and nationwide touring, and finally opened for rings like the Acacia Stress, Fit for any King, and Tx in July. The group authorized to Artery Recordings in early 2014, liberating their debut full-length, Balancing Success and Joy, that springtime. Kublai Khan toured European countries with Obey the Daring in the springtime of 2014, and made an appearance in the Impericon Event in Germany.
