The band was formed in 1998 by Been and and Hayes, who met in high school. Hayes had previously played in the Brian Jonestown Massacre. Shapiro replaced original drummer Nick Jago in 2008.

Fun fact: The garage rockers were originally called the Elements. The band's first two albums were influenced by psychedelic rock, space rock and noise pop influences such as the Velvet Underground, Sonic Youth, and most notably, the Jesus and Mary Chain.

In 2005, they switched directions and took on a more folk/Americana style for their album "Howl," which earned them even more success. Funnily enough, several of the songs for that album were written before the group was even together.
