2000 – present (18 years)
Gainesville, Alachua County, Florida, United States
The Æffect were a band from Gainesville, Florida. Formed in 1999, they released their debut EP A Short Dream on Fueled By Ramen Records in 2000. The EP was recorded at Flying Blanket Studios in Tucson, Arizona with Bob Hoag who had also manned the controls for label-mates The Impossibles and Recover.
Shortly thereafter, they did a 6 week run on the Vans Warped Tour. Other festivals the band played in the following year included MACRoCK, CMJ Music Marathon, and South by Southwest (SXSW). MTV VJ Jim Shearer interviewed the band for the show Advance Warning and things looked promising for the group.
The band went to record their follow up at Butch Vig's famed Madison, Wisconsin Smart Studios collaborating with up-and-coming producer Sean O'Keefe who had just finished Fall Out Boy's Take This To Your Grave. The results of the session were four songs that would never see the light of day because the upstart label that funded the project never fully materialized.
Vocalist/guitarist Aaron Feibus left the group in December 2003 to pursue a graduate degree. Keyboardist/vocalist Steve Kramer took over all musical and song-writing duties after Feibus' departure and released the band's long overdue follow-up Secrets and Lies in 2004.
The current status of the band is not currently known. The website of the group is still functional but has not been updated since March 2005 nor have they played any shows since May 2004.
