The band released their debut album, American Specialties, as a limited cassette release, in 2011. The band's second studio album, Light Up Gold (2012), was initially released on Savage's Dull Tools label and later reissued on What's Your Rupture? in 2013. Light Up Gold received widespread critical acclaim in both the DIY underground and mainstream rock press.
In 2014, the band reached #55 on the Billboard albums chart with its third studio album, Sunbathing Animal. Later in 2014, the band released "Uncast Shadow of a Southern Myth" as a single under an alternative name, Parkay Quarts. Soon after they released their fourth studio album, Content Nausea, on which Sean and Max were absent, due to other commitments.
On October 13, 2017, the band's co-frontman A. Savage released his first solo album, Thawing Dawn, through Dull Tools.
