Des Moines, Iowa's Christopher the Conquered (Chris Ford) has been sitting behind the keys and saying what he can say since he released his debut album "I Guess That's What We're Dying For" in 2007. In 2008, Christopher sat in on drums with The Poison Control Center for a national tour supporting The Apples In Stereo. When they got home, he and Patrick Tape Fleming (of The PCC and Gloom Balloon) went to work on a follow-up album, You're Gonna Glow In The Dark.

It led to The Conquered growing from a one man band to a 9 piece pop-soul outfit.
