Staring Back broke up. It sucked to do it, most of the dudes didn't want to, but here's what these dudes do now.

Vic plays bass in a band called The Awakened. www.myspace.com/awakened

Matt and Nick play in a band called Sicker Than Others. www.myspace.com/sickerthanothers

Gavin plays drums in Bayside. www.myspace.com/bayside

Jason plays guitar in a band called Skeleton Thieves. www.myspace.com/skeletonthievesrock

Ryan plays guitar in a band called Yellowcard www.yellocardrock.com

After seven years and a few vans and line-up changes, Staring Back has sold thousands of their own records, including their most recent release, On, produced by Cameron Webb (Tenacious D, Social Distortion, Motorhead, Lit, Sum 41). In support of the critically acclaimed On, Staring Back has done multiple US tours, including the entire Vans Warped Tour in 2002 and 2004, support on Strung Out and Lagwagon tours, and the Amp Video Six Pack contest on MTV and MTV2.
