|After leaving DragonForce in 2010, ZP set out to form his new future band, I Am I with Jacob Ziemba on guitar, Paul Clark Jr on drums and Neil Salmon on bass guitar. On April 16, 2012, the band released one of their songs from their upcoming debut album, Event Horizon, called "This Is My Life" on their official website. On May 4, 2012, I Am I released their first official music video for their track "Silent Genocide" off their upcoming album.
The album, Event Horizon, was set to be released on May 26, 2012 with their debut show following the next day at the Birmingham O2 Academy 2 with British metal band Primitai as support. Unfortunately, due to shipping issues, the copies of the album which were available for online purchase only were sent out nearly 5 days late.
I Am I have been confirmed to play Blood Stock Open Air's main stage on 11 August 2012.
On June 22, the band announced that they had parted ways with drummer Paul Clark Jr via Facebook because of "personal reasons", this was later removed. His replacement Phil Martini joined the band as their new drummer on Friday 20 June 2012.
On June 25, touring musician Greg Pullin also announced that he had parted ways with I Am I.
