Rein started out of the ashes of the band Forced after a breakup in 2003.
The band released "Futile Longings of a Condescending Man" in 2006.
Following the records release, Ben Bloom, keyboardist for Rein and frontman for Agnes Wired for Sound unexpectedly passed away. While the band continued on to play many more live shows, Ben's presence was missed dearly. In 2006, they played many shows including appearances in Cleveland, New York City, State College and Chicago. Jim Semonik, the band's singer is currently struggling with cancer.
