Abandon All Ships formed in 2006 in Toronto, Ontario. They started off just playing Norma Jean covers. At this point, they had gone through many different band members, most of them attending Dante Alighieri Catholic Secondary, including lead vocalist, Angelo Aita and keyboardist, Sebastian Cassisi-Nunez and their first bassist Francesco Pallota. They began as a garage band and eventually toured and opened for many hardcore bands such as Silverstein. They quickly became popular on the Internet through MySpace, and were noticed even more after their appearance on the Much Music program DisBAND.
