Search The City is an alternative/punk band from Detroit, Michigan. In 2006, their debut EP Ghosts was released. They were signed to Tooth & Nail Records and released their new debut album A Fire So Big The Heavens Can See It on April 1, 2008. One of the songs, To the Moon for All I Care was inspired by Australian comedy film Danny Deckchair.[3] The band toured with groups such as Run Kid Run, A Dream Too Late, Dr. Manhattan, Ivoryline, Scary Kids Scaring Kids, Breathe Carolina, and Panima. A Fire So Big the Heavens Can See It charted at No. 46 on the Billboard Top Christian Albums chart.[4]

As of 2011, the band is back together and writing music again.[5]

The Search the City Facebook page was "Not under the control of the band," until they regained access on February 27, 2012.

On June 19, 2012, the band released a YouTube video called "Search The City is alive!". In this video the band announced a new demo, which will be released on June 27. They also announced that there has been a bandmember change. In the video they introduce the 21 year old Travis Bobier as the new vocalist of the band, taking the place of former vocalist Josh Frost, Chris Jenkins replacing former drummer Adam McMillion, and Joe Marks taking a permanent place of former full-time bassist's Jim Baird, and temp bassist's Eli Clark and Brandon Ellis.[6]

On June 27, 2012, Search The City released two demos produced by Alan Reitman, "Watch the Stars Fall" and "Rewrite the Ending" on Facebook. They also created and released a lyric video on YouTube for both demos. After releasing these demos, the band plans on touring and recording a new record.[7] Original vocalist Josh Frost has begun work on his first solo project Kodiak Jack as well as opening up a recording studio called The Elephant Room.
