Treaty of Paris formed in January 2005 when Michael Chorvat, Dan Wade, Scott Hoeft and Brandon Capetillo of the local Chicago band Empyrean recruited Phil Kosch from the local Chicago band Saraphine The name Treaty of Paris was originally a fake name the band used at their first show with Kosch in order to downplay the fact that he was leaving his current band, but they decided to keep it because it was easy to remember Hoeft would later leave the group and was replaced by Chris Insidioso from Chicago hardcore group Rollo Tomasi Their first release was the EP Behind Our Calm Demeanors, released in September 2005 tracks from Behind Our Calm Demeanors received significant airplay in Chicago, and the EP sold well locally The group toured the US extensively over the next two years
