The band was formed as Fixed Til Tuesday in Birmingham by guitarist Jeremy Folse, vocalist Patrick Schefano, and drummer Joel Bailey by knowing each other from local schools and churches. Influenced both by the sound of church hymns and hardcore rock, the three formed the band and released an independent EP, Aww Son.
After much consideration and new thinking, Fixed Til Tuesday changed their name to I Am Terrified sometime between 2006 and 2010. The name comes straight from the verse in the Bible's Book of Job 23:14-15 which reads, "He carries out His decree against me, and many such plans He still has in store. That is why I am terrified before Him; when I think of all this, I fear Him." As guitarist Jeremy Folse explained they changed the name because they became driven "by the desire to give God straight-up worship, and to show the love of Christ to every kid we can possibly reach".
The band was signed in 2007 to Mono Vs Stereo Records and began work on their debut EP. When Mono Vs Stereo was put on hiatus by its parent company Gotee Records, the band was transferred to Gotee's roster. I Am Terrified was released on July 18, 2008, and then re-released on July 29, 2008.
