The band was formed by Dallon Weekes (The Brobecks, Panic! at the Disco) and Ryan Seaman (Falling in Reverse) in 2016. They made some show in US cities as "a band out of time. One who faded away into obscurity after struggling to find success in the late 70's and early 80's. Only recently, the internet has begun to uncover the performances and recordings of a band that the world wasn't ready for. Perhaps the world is ready now…" during that year and in 2017 Dallon posted a video of him and Ryan that seemed like it was recorded in the 80s.
Some more videos were released about a guy finding tapes of "IDK" on his attic and playing it on TV.
On August 18th, "Modern Day Cain" videoclip, the video of the tape, was released. This day is when the band became known by all his fans, not just the ones who saw the shows. Live videos leaked through the following months and at October 26th "Choke" was officialy released.
Since then, Dallon left Panic! for dedicating fully to his new project. On November 9th, 2018, the duo released their debut EP titled "1981 Extended Play".
On August 5, 2020, the band released a lyric video for a new song called "Leave Me Alone" with the announcement of their debut album titled Razzmatazz, which is set to release on October 16, 2020.
On September 16, the title track "Razzmatazz" was released, alongside a lyric video.
On September 30th, fans noticed the album release date on both Apple Music/iTunes and Amazon was suddenly moved a week after its original release, being the 23rd of October. Shortly, a day after, the band announced the change of date being moved from October 16th to October 23rd due to complications caused by Covid-19, along with the announcement of a new single, "New Invention", that's set to be released on October 2nd.
