History: Zach Schwartz decided to start Rogue Wave after his dot.com job failed. Schwartz, as a result, changed his name to Zach Rogue. He was formerly a guitarist in a Cali indie band called The Desoto Reds before he met up with his mates and started roguing it up. A bad break for the band came in 2006 when they were released from Sub Pop records.
