Adrian Barrera and Todd Galpin set their sights on Georgia after a lackluster music career in their homestate of Florida. They soon met up with Ian Franco, Milton Chapman and Johnny Kral and formed The Hiss. In March 2003 their self produced single "Triumph" entered the UK Singles Chart. They have toured the U.S. and Europe with Jet, Oasis andThe White Stripes. Their sound is comparable to The Stooges, The Velvet Underground and The Rolling Stones. They have released two full-length studiolbums and one of theirsongs featured in Tony Hawk's Underground 2. Some enhanced copies of the album have two music videos on them. They are heavily influenced by surrealism and because of this, might be considered art rock. They released a new LP Chocolate Hearts, all songs written in Atlanta after their recording studio in Florida's Key West area was evacuated because ofhurricanes. The band split up in November 2008.
