Scars of Tomorrow released its first material on Thorp Records, issuing two albums before signing to Victory Records in May 2003. After Victory released the group's third album in February 2004, they toured with Himsa, Atreyu, and Norma Jean. Upon the release of their fourth album and second with Victory, The Horror of Realization, in 2005, the group was slated to tour with Bury Your Dead, but shortly before the tour began, all of the members except lead vocalist Mike Milford quit the group. Milford quickly replaced all the members with Lisa Marx, Joey Atkins and Ryan Severino to the band and completed the tour as originally scheduled. After further lineup changes, the group's fifth studio effort was released in October 2006; in the meantime, Thorp Records released The Beginning Of..., a compilation of tracks from the band's first two albums. After further touring, the group disbanded in May 2007. In 2013, the band reformed and working on a new album.
