Carpe Noctem began in 2003 with the collaboration between brothers Ryan and Brandon De Young in Fresno, California. While searching for a bassist and a lead singer to complete the band, they wrote music together. Brandon met a skilled bassist named Jacob Gadberry, who then joined forces with the brothers. Shortly after, the three musicians moved to San Diego to attend college, where they were introduced to an incredibly talented guitar player and singer, Dave Knecht. Dave, originally from Newport Beach, California, became the lead singer and co-songwriter for the band in 2004. .. .. The four began to combine musical ideas into their own original pieces. After playing a few shows in San Diego, Carpe Noctem sparked interest in an investor. They were given a large sum of money to record their own demo CD. This EP was finished in late 2005, which features the captivating songs “Chasing Yesterday” and “Hollow Thoughts”. The guys are now about to finish their second studio album, Stages.
