Sonny Moore wasn't originally the band's front man. The original front man, Phillip Reardon, left the band for musical differences. The rest of the band posted bulletins on Myspace looking for a new person. Sonny was found and tried out for guitar, but was asked to front the band, after singing "Featuring Some Of Your Favorite Words".
The band's debut album on Epitaph Records is entitled "Dear Diary, My Teen Angst has a Body Count". This is a reference to Winona Ryder's line, "Dear diary, my teen angst bullshit has a body count", from the movie, Heathers (1988).
