Hailing from Southaven, Mississippi, the rock quartetAnother Society formed in early 1993, led by lead singer Luke John,who was still in his teens. With guitarists Jason "Huck" Huckabyand Jim Koester, bass player Brad Grubbs, and drummer Daryl Stephens, the young band quickly gained a local following and by mid-1994 had inked a deal with upstart label PC! Music Company. Influenced heavily by bands like Queensryche and Metallica, as well as Nirvana, they recorded their debut One Last Step,which was released in 1995. A solid effort, One Last Step earned good reviews and a smattering of airplay, although much of the attention focused on their cover of Nirvana's "School." A second release, Blood Wrong, followed in 1997, after which the band underwent some line-up changes, adding guitarist Clint Reed, bassist Ed Louis, and drummer Dan Lapansee.
