San Diego's Off By One jumped the punk revival bandwagon in 2000, aiming to make a place for themselves among the TRL tainted audience dominated by dance-pop . Comprised of Marc Gould (vocals), Jon Bishop (guitar), Jordan Brownwood (bass) and Trevor Easter (drums), Off By One was surrounded by music from an early age. By their late teens, they formed a band and aimed for a glossy rock sound. LMC Records offered the boys a deal; in summer 2002, Off By One released their debut album. Shared west coast dates with RX Bandits, Mellowdrone, and Sugarcult followed.
