Horror-ska rockers Roman Watchdogs formed in 2012, quickly developing their Sublime-meets-the Descendants style with a lineup featuring Derek Scott (vocals, guitar), Jimmy Fleck (lead guitar, vocals), Josh Vasquez (bass), and Richard Mestaz (drums). Fleck was later replaced by Skylar Carlson.
By 2016, the band had became a trio featuring Scott and Mestaz backed by bassist Elias Saldaña.
