Their first release in 2008, a self-titled EP displaying a moody and downbeat emo/post-hardcore sound. 2009's The Grey EP fit the same genre label but was more anthemic and upbeat, and was also the last release from the band before Josh Davis (who had been providing the band's occasional screamed vocals) left the band as an official member. Perhaps because of this, the band's debut full-length after signing to Tooth & Nail Records, Scripted, featured a considerably different sound. While the emo and hardcore influences were still somewhat present, the style was closer to Skillet-esque hard rock with elements of modern pop. Despite some criticism aimed at the album's lack of originality, it charted high on Billboard's Christian and Hard Rock charts (peaking at 5 and 7 respectively) and became the highest-selling Tooth & Nail debut album in the label's history. « hide
