Panic Years was formed in 2007 by two former bandmates, Edward and Amy, who were growing weary of the floundering Virginia Beach local music community and disheartened by being in bands. The two mates decided to start collaborating on a few old ideas and a few new ones with the goal of simply writing good songs. In early 2008, they teamed up with old friends and former Capitol recording artists Mark Padgett and Rob Sweitzer, to produce and record their first self titled Ep. With the help of the production duo, the band was able to create the sounds and parts exactly as they had imagined. The outcome is a collection of songs that reflect who Edward and Amy are as songwriters. After recording the album, Amy and Edward packed up and moved to Philly where they met Pete, Adam and Justin, and are currently playing shows and writing new material. You can hear songs from the new EP on over 85 college radio stations across the country, as well as on Philly's own Alternative station, Radio 104.5!
