Formed in 1996 in Los Angeles, California by David Andrecht and Ted Phelps, Imperative Reaction began as the remnants of the Los Angeles based D.N.A. An early demo tape entitled Debris was released in the summer of 1996 only to be recalled and destroyed after the band decided to start over with fresh material. After some experimentation, band started working on a new demo.
In February of 1999, Eulogy For The Sick Child was released. Comprised of material created during the band’s short, three-year history, Eulogy… was an immediate success in the United States.The album Ruined from 2002, proved that there was more to Imperative Reaction than relentless club hits. Shortly afterwards, work began on their follow-up record. Taking nearly a year to complete, Redemption, their newest album, was established in early 2004. Following the success of Redemption, the band worked for more than a year to release As We Fall on November 7, 2006. Minus All, their fifth album, was released on October 7, 2008.
The band release in july 12, 2011 an 8-track single, entitled “Surface” as an appetizer for the forthcoming studio album. New album will be released on Sep 13, 2011.
