The Cab is a rock band from Las Vegas. They started out under Decaydance for their first record (Whisper War, 2008) but managed to record and publish the second one (Symphony Soldier, 2011) independently.
Their current line up consists of Alexander [=DeLeon=] (lead vocals), Joey Thunder (bass), Dave Briggs (drums), and Chance Johnson (guitar, backing vocals, cello). Former members included Alex Marshall (piano, guitar, backing vocals), [[Music/PanicAtTheDisco Ian Crawford]] (guitar, backing vocals), Cash Colligan (bass, backing vocals), Alex Johnson (drums), Paul Garcia (guitar) and Bryan Dawson (guitar).
The band was first formed by Alexander [=DeLeon=] and Cash Colligan when they started playing music together at high school. Their first show with a full line-up was in 2005 at The Alley in Las Vegas.
They got signed under Decaydance after giving a demo to Spencer Smith at a concert. After they got signed they replaced Paul Garcia with Ian Crawford who moved from Washington to join them.

-->I'm an angel with a shotgun\\
Fighting 'til the war's won\\
I don't care if Heaven won't take me back\\
I'll throw away my faith, babe\\
Just to keep you safe\\
Don't you know you're everything I have?
