Based in Mira Mesa, Fistfights With Wolves was founded in 2010 by classical pianist Mathew Rakers and jazz guitarist Ryan Bradley under the name Interrobang. Both musicians played extensively in multiple
genres of rock and art music for the majority of their lives. Over the years, the band's compositions have become harmonically and rhythmically complex, utilizing many elements of modern classical music while using the format of rock instrumentation.

Their album A Tale Of Two Interrobangs was released in 2013.
