BackgroundEdit

Candace Kucsulain, Apathemy's singer from 1996 to 1998, joined the band when it was founded.[1]

In April 1999 the band released their first EP, Underestimated, which was followed by a second EP, A Day and a Thousand Years, containing Underestimated and demo tracks, released on Florida-based Eulogy Recordings and later by European imprint Genet. After touring in support of the releases, the band was signed to Trustkill Records and released their debut full-length album The Bound Feed the Gagged in December 1999.

After unsuccessful auditions to fill the vacant drummer position, the band went into hiatus.[2] Shortly before this, lead vocalist Kucsulain entered a body piercing apprenticeship, which would occupy her free time over the next two years.[1] Also during this time band members Hasty, Ruby and Rawson started a side project band called It's All Gone to Hell.[1]

Alexei Rodriguez joined the band, which began touring again April 2003. The band began writing new material and in September 2003 completed recording All Hail the Dead, which was released in February 2004.[1] The album release garnered them support slots for other bands as well as headlining tours of their own. It was not long after the release that Rodriguez left the band. He was replaced by longtime friend Dustin Schoenhofer.

They entered the studio in 2006 with producer Ben Schigel to start recording their third album, With Devils Amongst Us All, which was released in August. "A Trigger Full of Promises" was released as a its first single in April and was included on the MTV2 Headbangers Ball: The Revenge compilation CD.

In October 2007 the band worked with Corey Taylor to produce Redemption, an acoustic-only EP which was released on April 29, 2008, via Trustkill.[3] Taylor providing guest vocals on three of the five tracks. On July 29, 2008, the band released their fourth full-length studio album, The American Dream, that features a return to the band's previous style, and was produced once again by Ben Schigel. In early 2014, they released "Relentless" as a demo.[4] They released No One Can Save You From Yourself on March 25, 2016, via Napalm Records.[5]
