Original drummer Armando Lopez left the band in 2003 to join the band No Justice. Mike Walker joined the band to record "The 405 Sessions" in 2004 and became a permanant member when the band signed to Astonish records in 2006. The band's first full length record, Aranda, was released on April 22, 2008. The first single, "Still in the Dark", peaked at No. 31 on the Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks chart. Aranda has toured with bands like The All-American Rejects, Buckcherry, Sevendust, Anew Revolution, Since October, Edisun, Saliva, Shinedown, Puddle of Mudd, Theory of a Deadman, Black Stone Cherry and Tantric.
