They were hand picked (from a list of 20 Bay Area bands) by vocalist Phil Labonte to open for All That Remains and Lacuna Coil at the Grand Ballroom in San Francisco in October of 2009. The band was also the opening act at the San Francisco stop for Cruefest 2, sharing the stage with Motley Crue and Godsmack (among others) and also opened for National acts such as Nonpoint, Cold, Drowning Pool, Rev Theory, Maylene and the Sons of Disaster, Taking Dawn, Kylesa, Will Haven and American Headcharge.

Bringing all of that experience with them to Couteaux, Tino and Linden and have teamed up with Tino's brother Nico(Molinari) and Bassist Zack Sumner to breathe new life into their project and have managed to create some truly infectious music on their forthcoming EP, 'Sail West to Reach the East'.

As the band themselves put it, "With our influences combined, we can play melodic music with a punch...and also summon captain planet."
