They have released two LPs, their debut No Fate...But What We Make For Ourselves and their 2005 full-length Don't Get Lost in a Movement and are currently on the Vans warped Tour 2006. Their sound has been compared to influences as widely ranging as Iron Maiden, Thrice, Strung Out and even The Police.
Originally formed in 1999, the band underwent a change of personnel in 2003 to welcome several new members and incorporated a third guitarist to produce a fuller, more dynamic sound. With help from friend and producer/engineer, Dean Hadjichristou (Addictive Sound Studios), the band began production on tracks that would eventually appear on their debut CD. After playing only a handful of shows, The Fully Down caught the attention of local label Pop Culture Records, who eagerly signed the band.
Alternative Press Magazine selected The Fully Down as winners of their Vans Warped Tour (Region 4) contest in July, 2004. The band subsequently enjoyed three weeks on the Vans Warped Tour covering the North-Eastern U.S. & Canada. The band also signed a deal that saw their CD released in Japan via Bullion Records in February, 2005.
The Fully Down signed to Fearless Records in August 2005. Their label debut, Don't Get Lost in a Movement, appeared that November. Touring continued before the band headed out the following spring on the fear and loathing Tour with Protest The Hero, A Wilhelm Scream, Bayside and The Spill Canvas. Halfway through April the tour ended and they began touring with Boy Sets Fire and Versus the Mirror until the end of May.

The album garnered favorable reviews, and they went on three weeks Warped Tour 2004 to support it. Their stint on Warped Tour gave them their first taste of U.S. exposure, which accelerated their popularity in the North American market.

After auditioning singers via their MySpace, The Fully Down announced that they decided on a new vocalist: Justin Camarena, of Detroit, MI. Camarena was a founding member of a local Detroit band named Tough Call, which had a loyal following from their inception in 2003 until their disbanding following Justin's departure to join The Fully Down.
