With the break up of Atombombpocketknife, singer/guitarist Justin Sinkovich began releasing remixes and solo avant electronic tracks as The Poison Arrows on compilations in the US and Europe, and then on 2004’s Trailer Park EP. Restless from solo work, Sinkovich began collaborating. Bassist Patrick Morris soon joined the band. It was his first band since his departure from Don Caballero in 1999 after the release of the seminal What Burns Never Returns. Adam Reach joined behind the drum kit and Chicago’s The Poison Arrows lineup was solidified.
