Formed in 2011, Muuy Biien was conceived as a loud, fed-up response to what some would say was a stagnant and uninteresting music scene in the band’s hometown of Athens, GA.

Evans’s hardcore ambitions were fully realized with the addition of guitarists Xander Witt and Robbie Rapp and drummer Jacob Lake.
