Shaped in 1997 by Ray Harkins (vocals), Chad Tafolla (guitar), Dan Baird (guitar), Nick Beard (bass), and Troy Delivered (drums), this Orange State, California-based melodic hardcore group liked critical acclaim but just humble success during its eight-year executing job. Their early demonstration material premiered via the tiny Here WE HAVE BEEN Information label, and led indirectly to some contract using the Canadian indie Goodfellow Information. The Acquiring Solace In Dissension EP as well as the album PLUS THEY Slept followed in the beginning of the fresh millennium. Both produces met with solid acclaim on the united states hardcore picture, with comparisons designed to the knotty option rock and roll of pioneering rings such as IN THE Drive-In and Glassjaw. Given birth to was changed by Juan Pereda by the end of 2001 and Baird by Erik Bensberg the next summer time. Despite a formidable live status and an evergrowing cult following, Used thought we would disband in 2004 following a series of psychological farewell concerts as well as the launch of Between Two Unseens. Harkin continued to create Mikoto and Beard became a member of post-hardcore device Circa Survive.
