Surf-punkers the Frights were still teens when founded by Richard Dotson (the Cricks), Mikey Carnevale, and Adam Lomnitzer (both from Monomood and Black Hootie). They released a split 7-inch single in November 2011 with Mrs. Magician, "Prescription Vision" b/w "I Know What Girls Like", with 500 copies released on the Grizzly Records label.

Dotson and Carnevale formed the Otters, and were later joined by Lomnitzer to play as Black Hootie at Soma in December 2012.

After being signed by local Postmark Records shortly after playing the Soma show, they changed their name to the Frights and released their Dead Beach EP, followed in May 2013 by their Fur Sure EP.
