Spoken signed to Tooth & Nail Records to release their album, titled A Moment of Imperfect Clarity. This, and their subsequent albums on Tooth and Nail, highlighted an evolving sound in which first melody and then a post-hardcore sound were introduced and stressed. The band shot music videos for "Promise" and "Falling Further"
In 2005, Spoken released Last Chance to Breathe. The style changed even more, becoming more based on screams than heavy guitar work. A music video was shot for "Bitter Taste", a single from the album, featuring Cory Brandon Putman of Norma Jean.
On September 25, 2007, Spoken released the album, Spoken. The sound was heavier and more mature, with both heavy vocals and heavy guitar work. Matt Baird, the lead vocalist for Spoken, said this about their sound: "Our new record has a lot of diversity. There are songs that are heavier than anything we've done before, and there is a song that is mostly piano. The songs are really all over the place as far as a similar style or genre, but it works. I think the record is extremely cohesive. I can't wait for people to hear it."
Spoken has been working on a new record since 2009 with producer Jasen Rauch. They have revealed that the record is finished and will be released on February 12, 2013 through E1 Music and will be called, "Illusion".
The band announced via their Facebook page on November 28, 2014 that they would release a new album in 2015. A later interview with singer Matt Baird revealed the band will be recording at least one song in January as a promo track and then the remainder of the album will be recorded in May 2015. On November 26, 2016, Scoop Roberts announced that he was embarking on final tour with the band and that he would be on the next album.
