Against All Will is a rock quartet from Los Angeles, California, whose debut album lineup was formed in Spring 2009 by Jimmy Allen (formerly of Puddle Of Mudd), Jeff Current (formerly of Seven Story Drop), Steve "Boomstick" Wilson (formerly of Dead Kennedys and t.A.T.u.), and Cello Dias (formerly of Soulfly). Songs All About You and The Drug I Need from their debut album entitled A Rhyme & Reason ranked in the national rock radio top 50 in 2010, while The Drug I Need was added to Sirius XM Octane's Top 15 that same year.[1][2][3][4]



Against All Will was formed in 2007[5] by Jimmy Allen who spent several years writing for bands and working on independent music projects after leaving Puddle of Mudd. After trying this for a couple of years, he decided to start his own band with "Mizzy" Pacheco and Mark "Moke" Bistany. The lineup fell through, and Allen and Jeff Current met through their mutual friend "Bigg Dave" Threlkeld. Current flew from Dallas, Texas to Los Angeles, California to audition for the role of lead singer, and was offered the position. After holding tryouts for bass guitar players and drummers, Steve "Boomstick" Wilson formerly of t.A.T.u. and Dead Kennedys was hired to join the band. Because Against All Will had a rehearsal space next to Roy Mayorga, the drummer for Stone Sour, the band spoke with Mayorga about their need for a bassist. Mayorga recommended Cello Dias, the former bassist for Soulfly.

In March 2011, Phillip Gonyea replaced Wilson on drums.[6][7][8]
