The group was formed in September 2001 by singer/guitarist Micah Schnabel, who began playing with drummer Dustin Harigle in and around Columbus. Guitarist Chris Flint joined the group after seeing one of their early shows, and bassist Shane Sweeney followed soon after. The group released its first album in 2002 and embarked on a near-constant nationwide U.S. tour, clocking over 300,000 miles on their tour bus. Their second album, The Wall Against Our Back, came out in 2004 to considerable critical acclaim, and the group's tour was recorded by John Boston and released as a documentary, The Long Way Around: One Badass Year With Two Cow Garage. A third album, III, was released in 2007 and followed by Speaking In Cursive in September 2008. Harigle left the band on tour in 2007; drummer Cody Smith, keyboardist Andy Schell, and guitarist Chris Flint joined for Speaking In Cursive.
