History

The band was formed in 2005 when Walker decided that some of his recent songs didn't fit the style of his primary band, Grand Theft Bus, and invited Cunjak and Cobham, two friends who had also written a number of songs that didn't fit their other bands, to join a new side project.[1] Cunjak is also in the band Share, while Cobham is in the band Force Fields.

They released their debut album, Chapter One, in 2007,[1] and followed up with More in Sorrow Than in Anger in 2008 and with The City Won't Have Time to Fight in 2011.[2]

They recorded The City Won't Have Time to Fight in an abandoned house in Fredericton.[3] To mark the album's release, they organized a weekend music event, Shivering Songs, which featured performances by a variety of the band's friends and collaborators, including Rose Cousins, Catherine MacLellan, David Myles, Snailhouse, Olenka Krakus and Grant Lawrence.[3]
