After Eleven Forty 3 broke up, guitarist Keith Higgins wanted to start a Metalcore project with his friend, Andrew Barrell. Zach Jordan who had also been apart of Eleven Forty 3 remained in the band they would call Ride the Trigger. They then recruited bassist Grant Valentine from Reagan Smash. The four then recorded rough demos to attract listeners and possible future members. Ride the Trigger looked for a frontman, but was unsuccessful and broke up.
