History[edit]

Sullivan came together as a trio in 2001. In 2002, they recorded and released Count the Time in Quarter Tones on Forsaken/Tribunal Records. The EP sold well and extensive touring followed. They were subsequently signed to the Tooth & Nail Records label. In 2006, now as a four pieced band, (consisting of Brooks Paschal on lead vocals/rhythm guitar, Zach Harward on bass, Phil Chamberlain on the drums and Tyson Shipman on lead guitar) they released their international debut, Hey, I'm a Ghost, which featured the single "Down Here, We All Float". They released their second album, Cover Your Eyes, on June 5, 2007 with new guitarist Jeremy Stanton.

Phil Chamberlain's brother, Spencer Chamberlain, is the screaming lead vocalist portion of Underoath. They were also in the metalcore band, This Runs Through (along with current Sullivan guitarist Tyson Shipman) previous to their current musical projects.

Former Sullivan drummer Mike Lawrence has played drums in Tribunal Records metalcore band Heartscarved and played guitar and keyboards in Curse Your Name.

The band split up in late 2007 whilst still on their headlining "Cover Your Eyes Tour". The band posted a blog in which they revealed they "didn't want things to come to this", but that "the best course of action for our members is to disband" even though there was "no bad blood between any of us"[citation needed]

Paschal, Shipman and Stanton, are now part of The Afterlife Kids. They released a self-titled EP in 2010. Brooks Paschal has also released music as a solo artist under his stage name, Surprises.

On October 13, 2013, the band uploaded a new song called "Profile" to their YouTube account. A brand new full length is expected to release in 2014. An acoustic EP featuring versions of five songs from the band's previous records entitled Undressed is scheduled for release on November 27th, 2013.
