The Fully Down signed to Fearless Records (Culver City, California) in August 2005. Their Fearless Records debut, Don't Get Lost In A Movement was released throughout North America on November 22, 2005. The band headed directly to the United States for a countrywide tour in support of the record with Four Year Strong (Worcester, Massachusetts) and Maida.
The following spring, the band headed out across Canada on the Tour and Loathing headlined by Protest The Hero and including A Wilhelm Scream, Bayside and The Spill Canvas. The tour ended halfway through April, and they began touring with Boy Sets Fire (Newark, Delaware) and Versus the Mirror until the end of May. The summer of 2006 was spent back on the Vans Warped Tour; as the band played all 50 dates on the Smartpunk stage.
