Formed in November 2011, Volcano Diving INC began as a side project for former Salt Stake (metal cover band) members, guitarist Matthew Nesheim and bass player Ian McCann. Eric Anderson was invited to join the project after a cancelled audition to fill Salt Stake's open drummer position. Salt Stake disbanded shortly after due to directional differences.
Eric, Ian, and Matthew wrote and rehearsed as a three-piece group while searching for a second guitarist and vocalist. With few responses to the member search and miss matched auditions, Volcano Diving began booking shows as an instrumental group with hopes to find members through public performances. They played their first show Friday, August 22nd, 2014 at Big V's in St. Paul.
April 2015, Ian performed an acoustic set with Action Go where he met Brad Grimm performing Just Two Dudes. After Brad's set, Ian asked him to audition vocals for Volcano Diving. June 20th, 2015, Brad did his first show with Volcano Diving Inc at the Club Underground. Volcano Diving played Northern Wisconsin Metalfest 2015 and 2016. March 20th, 2016, they opened for Lydia Can’t Breathe.
August 2016, they recorded and released their first EP The March Begins featuring “Todd the Butcher,” “Volcano Diving Inc,” and “Bear Wrestling.”
October 2018, Spencer Houchins joined Volcano Diving on guitars.
