Dwellers features Iota (Small Stone Records) song writer/guitarist/vocalist Joey Toscano, and Subrosa (Profound Lore) drummer and bassist Zach Hatsis and Dave Jones. The band originally started as a duo between Hatsis and Toscano, who self-released a 3 song EP in 2009. A year later, they added Jones on bass, and began writing and performing material for a full length LP. In early 2011 Dwellers released a free, experimental EP titled "Peace, and Other Horrors". The band claims it to be inspired by a single chapter in S.
