Taken from the Ed Matus' Struggle Myspace:
Ed Matus' Struggle started with Juan Montoya on guitar, Carl Ferrari on bass, and Robert Lecusay on drums in early 1994. They recorded a self-titled debut on Space Cadette records shortly after adding Scott Nixon on vocals and guitar.
Carl left in 1997 to pursue other musical interests, including his band Swivel Stick. A cadre of bass players followed, and eventually they decided to stay a 3 piece with Scott moving to bass permanently in 2000. After recording a split 7" with Floor, Entomological Discoveries with Sound and Vibration, they recorded a four song EP entitled Planes That Cast a Gloom.
Shortly thereafter they released a song on the Emo Diaries Vol. 4 entitled Distance. Another song, Hovering, was released on the Eagle has Landed compilation for Tranquility Base. Steve Brooks joined on guitar in 2000 and the band took a turn towards a heavier style of music. Ed Matus' Struggle broke up while recording songs for another full-length in 2002. Several songs were completed (or nearly completed, e.g., Hialeah and Teen Beatdown), but have never been released.
