Eponymous formed in 2000 out of two Omaha area high schools. No one had any idea how to play their instruments at the time, but that didn't stop anything. The original lineup, consisting of Drew Stoller, David Robinson, Ryan Kronschnabel, Nick Sanders, and Travis Knapp. After starting out at local places that are long since dead (The Cog Factory, Ranch Bowl, the Junction, etc.) it became apparent that members was too much, and Eponymous began changing its lineup. By 2003, Travis was gone, Nick had been replaced with a new drummer named Mike, and Ryan had left.
From 2003 until 2004, Eponymous continued to play local venues like the Ranch Bowl, O'Leavers, and anywhere else that would open their doors to a bunch of snotty, rebellious punk kids. Eventually, David's younger brother, Steven, joined and made the band a 4 piece again. The lineup consisting of David on bass, Drew on guitar and vocals, Steven on guitar, and Mike on drums lasted for 6 years.
In late 2009/early 2010, Steven and David left the band, as did Mike leaving just Drew. The band had just finished recording a full-length album that was never released, but after a short hiatus, Mike and Drew put the band back together with a new member on guitar, Sean Soucy. Starting in 2011, the band returned to the stage as a three piece, with Sean filling in on bass until a new bass player could be found. Sam Morris of Officially Terminated and 3D in Your Face joined Eponymous for awhile, but due to a busy schedule was forced to leave before playing any shows.
In 2012, Alex Steffens joined the band on bass and completed the lineup. Many shows were played in and out of Omaha, and in early-mid 2013 an downloadable EP titled "The Grains of Sands of Time of Destiny" was released. After differences on tour in the summer, Sean and Mike parted ways with Eponymous, but the band refuses to quit. Eponymous is still available for shows and hires local drummers for one shot shows until a permanent replacement for Mike is found. The future is bright for Eponymous, so stick around.
