In 2012, Steven Spence left the group to work on other projects.
The group ends its activities in 2016.
The group is initially formed in 2004 in Miami, Florida, by guitarist Gabriel Garcia and his older brother Raul Garcia. The latter recruits the second guitarist Alex Nuñez. At that time, Gabriel was only 11 years old, and Alex was 13 years old. The latter two then recruit bassist Zachary Sandler and drummer Steven Spence, after the departure of Raul from the group. The line-up of the group was finally complete. The band then starts some local concerts, eventually gaining the attention of record labels due to the young age and talent of the members.
