In the summer of 2010, singer John Intagliata, and guitarist Steve Shaver sat down in Steve's studio, The Locker, to see if they could record some songs they wrote when they were teenagers in 1989. After recording one of their old tunes, they got the itch to write some new music. What followed was nine months of writing, and recording at The Locker. Steve and John wrote 6 new songs, and re-recorded an old song; 'Silent Horror.' After listening to playbacks of the songs, they looked at each other and said "we need to put together a kick-ass band, and bring these songs to the masses". Thus the concept of To The Pain was born.
