About xFilesx: Straight-Edge hardcore from New Bedford, MA. The band formed in 2000 as a "joke band" side project of THE AWAKENED. Edson DaSilva, Matt Vaughan and Brendan Radigan began playing fast hardcore songs with an aim to sound similar to CHARLES BRONSON and MK ULTRA. Soon bassist Trevor Vaughan joined and the line up was solidified for the bands entire existence. Until 2003 the band recorded, played extensively in the northeast and completed one full tour of the U.S. with fellow MA hardcore act Think I Care.
