Once his previous band, New Jersey rockers Halfway to Gone, became all the way gone (having officially announced their breakup), singer and harmonica player Lee Stuart began looking for his next musical endeavor. Deciding to pair up with longtime friend and Monster Magnet/Raging Slab drummer Bob Pantella to form A Thousand Knives of Fire, they rounded out the lineup with some other buddies from the thriving local underground rock scene: guitarist Paul Wiegand, bassist Taj Briggles, and erstwhile Halfway to Gone partner Dan Golin as a second drummer. They began performing live and working on material for an LP. In 2008, A Thousand Knives of Fire unleashed their Southern-flavored, hard-rocking debut, The Last Train to Scornsville, through Small Stone Records.
