Through aggressive online marketing, demo releases and live appearances, they attracted the attention of several labels before signing with Drive-Thru Records in 2001. Their debut EP, With Hopes of Starting Over..., soon followed.
Their debut album, 2002's Say It Like You Mean It, rose to No. 9 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart and No. 109 on the Billboard 200.
After moving to Geffen Records, the band released their sophomore album, Based on a True Story, in 2005. The album enjoyed considerable success, rising to No. 18 on the Billboard 200 chart and attracting positive reviews from critics. Recruited keyboardist Brian Schmutz, the group released 2007's Direction. The album peaked at No. 30 on the Billboard 200.
