Biography

The group was formed in Queens, NY in 2002 by former Black Army Jacket bassist, Carlos Ramirez, when he met singer/guitarist Kayne Konecny after he auditioned for another band he was playing in. The two musicians bonded on their mutual love for mid-90s bands like Sense Field, Farside and Samiam. Konecny had been demoing some songs on his own and they started building on those ideas at his apartment before they seeked out a drummer. Once they felt they had a few worthy songs, they hooked up with NJ native Benj Gleeksman on drums. After a few months with another 2nd guitarist, the band, now calling themselves Lakota, recruited Patrick Lane. Lane had been a bandmate of Konecny up in their hometown of Binghamton, NY. With the band now ready to start gigging, local drummer Jimmy Herbst joined the ranks. The band then went into Magic Shop studios in NYC to record a self financed EP with Taking Back Sunday and Brand New producer Juan Garcia.

Meanwhile down in Florida, former Further Seems Forever guitarist Nick Dominguez had just started a label called Pop Up Records. He came across the Lakota MySpace page and fell in love with the songs. Along with his partners Jason Knapfel and Derick Cordoba (currently still in Further Seems Forever)signed the band. They re-released the 5 song EP and the band hit the road touring throughout the US in 2004. One of the tours found them opening for Further Seems Forever. The band also played the inaugural edition of Bamboozle in Ausbury Park, NJ.
