After moving to the Atlanta suburb of Marietta, GA, to live with his grandparents, singer/guitarist Zach Tipton started playing in a band with some new friends of his, drummer Bobby Theberge, keyboardist Chris Firebaugh, and an unnamed female vocalist. But Tipton soon grew tired of their dance-rock direction, prompting the crew to switch out their extra singer with bassist DJ Schulz, and the guys started playing a more grounded indie rock clattering under the name In Vitro. The quartet recorded the three-song EP I'm Dying But I Still Don't See Anything at the beginning of 2006, and by spring, they had — weirdly enough — inked a deal with Victory Records, a label usually known for hardcore-leaning acts. Almost as soon as the ink was dry, however, a French punk band was discovered that already had the rights to the name In Vitro, so the guys rechristened themselves Moros Eros. (Moros is both Greek for "impending doom" and the name of the god of night's son, while Eros is the Greek god of love. Draw your own conclusions.) Their verbosely titled label debut, I Saw the Devil Last Night and Now the Sun Shines Bright, was issued on Halloween 2006, while Jealous Me Was Killed by Curiousity followed nearly a year later.
