Birthed from a brotherhood bond Identity Krisis (IDK) is truly a band of brothers. Originally named the Pretty Difficult Boys, the band formed in 2007 after wanting to emulate the success in music that they found on the hit game Rockband. With the original line up being that of Nova Cain playing guitar and doing vocals, Solo Dolo on lead guitar, Quah Manigan on bass and Remy on drums. The new all black rockband was created and ready to rock. Shortly after forming, the band added another neighborhood friend Cortez Mars who would take on the responsibility of songwriting and vocals. His hip hop roots added another dynamic to the group's persona and musical styling. Almost immediately after adding Mars the band changed the name to Identity Krisis. The name was said to describe the band in the most perfect way possible. The songs they were creating fit no genre perfectly as if they did not what type of music they wanted to create. Also being a group of all black musicians making rock music though no unheard of was somewhat of a shock to the people listening. With influences like Red Hot Chili Peppers, Gym Class Heroes, Coheed and Cambria, NERD, and Weezer. IDK is without a doubt a breathe of fresh air in music.
