One of the main pioneers of old-school christian punkrock, apearing in mid 90's, and lasting well over a decade. Known for being on the forefront of the southern California based "JCHC" underground movement, along with Officer Negative, NIV, and The Crucified, among others.
Characterized as being non-compromising in their faith, with guitar-driven, powerfully fast, sophisticated hardcore punk music and non-cheesey christian lyrics. Their songs were often sharp, deep, and intelligently written, with subjects ranging from modern pragmaticism, social injustice, personal struggles, and practical spiritual insights.
Originally based in Orange County, California, they moved in 2001 to Illinois to join with Jesus People USA (aka JPUSA), an intentional christian community and urban ministry serving inner-city Chicago with national and international branches of ministry. There, they became one of the top bands on the JPUSA-run record label, Grrr Records.
In the winter of 2005 they retired from touring and recording in order to focus on their families and other ministry callings, with a reunion show at the 2006 Cornerstone Festival.
After playing cornerstone 07 the band has begun playing shows yet again and it is uncertain if the worship album that was promised will actually be completed.
