Iwrestledabearonce was formed in 2008 in Shreveport, Louisiana. The origin of this band's name was inspired by a comment made by Gary Busey on Comedy Central. Iwrestledabearonce signed to Century Media by 2008 after their inclusion on tours supporting the EP. The group then recorded and released their debut full length album It's All Happening on June 2, 2009 in the USA and on August 31, 2009 in European stores. In June through September 2008, their single, "Tastes like Kevin Bacon" appeared on the Sirius hard attack radio station "Devils Dozen" list as high as No. 4 in the 12 most requested songs. It's All Happening reached no. 1 on the Billboard top heatseekers chart and No. 122 on the Billboard 200 chart upon it's release in 2009. Fast forward to 2015 and countless tours/albums behind them and they are putting out their most aggressive album to date. Hail Mary features 14 punishing tracks that will grab every listener by storm.
