History Edit

Back in 2008 Andrew Villanova was singing in a Lovian pub for fun when Frankie Iero, My Chemical Romance's guitarist, heard him. Iero signed him and other musicans to a deal to record an album on Entrance a branch of Lovilago Music's hip-hop lable but since the band also has alot of techno and rock stylings there was some discussion but they signed him anyway. Once Billy Joe Armstrong heard about it, he joined and they recorded I Wish. The band is currently touring with other fanous artists.

The band has recently performed at Newhaven Stadium, in 2010, where people from throughout the world came to see them play, attendance was around 30,000 which the stadium was packed with people on the field and in seats. The new Live album will also include an another performance in the Rock & Roll Cafe in New York, Times Square, which the place was packed with 100 people. There they played only songs from Crimson Skies.

The band released a special edition album called Talking With My Shadow. The album included all seven tracks from the first two EP's, extra gifts and new tracks. The album included other covers, which did not include any new tracks but released B-side tracks.

The band dropped a new album on August 12th, 2012 called "Won't be back till never". It was the bands first official album, instead of releasing just EPs. The album sold an impressive 3.5 million copies in the first month and include five singles "Samuel Barber ft. Kanye West, Big Sean, Yelawolf, Gerard Way, Lady Gaga", the follow up "Trailblazer ft. Kanye West, Coren Bailey Rae". The two were both released before the album dropped and each were downlaoded about 1.1 million times each. The other three "My way home, can't be found", "Young Money like a shit ft. Pusha-T", which was a strong dis track against Young Money with another G.O.O.D. MUSIC artist, Pusha-T who previously dissed Young Money, and "Nobody Like you ft. Adele, Lana del Rey and Lady Gaga". Each track sold about 500,000 copies in there first month.
