The members of A New Challenger Approaches relocated from their original home base of Yuma, Arizona to take up residence in Ocean Beach alongside other imported bands like Brothers Gow. “Some of us quit school, others quit jobs,” says singer Jon Loera.

After making their local debut at Soma in December, 2012, the band released an EP, Dead Inside, produced by former Lambesis Studios engineer Daniel Castleman.
