Loren Battle was formed in January of 2004 by Rodney Manning, Keith Auzenne & present Drummer/Vocalist Ryan Mabee. The band first took the stage as a 4 piece punk/screamo group. Playing their hearts out with variety of acts in many different genres, the band knew they had something special. The band longed to further develop their sound and themselves as musicians. The band took to the studio to record what would be their first 5 song EP which was later released in July of 2005. Sadly, as Loren Battle was on the rise in the local scene, members would resign for personal reasons.
