Wife Beater, Vessels, Landon's departure from Before Their Eyes, First Born, (2010–2011)[edit]

While as a part of Before Their Eyes where he played guitar, Landon Tewers formed Vessels in 2010 as a side-project. After the successful release of their EP Wife Beater, Tewers saw the potential of Vessels and left Before Their Eyes. The name was changed from Vessels to The Plot in You and the band signed to Rise Records.[1]

By the time they were signed, Tewers had already begun working on material seeking to release a full-length. The full-length debut First Born was what came from the writing process, meeting its release on April 19, 2011 via Rise Records.[2] A music video for "Miscarriage" was recorded.[3] The band toured extensively through 2011 and 2012 with acts such as A Bullet for Pretty Boy, Whitechapel, Miss May I, Within the Ruins, Iwrestledabearonce, and Oceano.[4][5][6] Guitarist Anthony Thoma announced in late 2011 that he would be leaving the band to return to school. His last tour was the band's first outing to Australia to support Buried in Verona.[7] He was replaced by Derrick Sechrist.

Could You Watch Your Children Burn, Cole Worden's departure (2012–2013)[edit]

The Plot in You announced their new album Could You Watch Your Children Burn in November 2012. The album released January 15 via Rise Records.[8] The first single "Premeditated" was released on December 10 via the Rise Records YouTube channel.[9] Drummer Cole Worden announced that he would be amicably leaving the band after the "Fuck It, We're Done" tour with Attack Attack! to pursue an education, just as former guitarist Anthony Thoma did the past year.[10] Kevin Rutherford, formerly of Like Moths to Flames, went as an unofficial member for a period of time until he became a permanent member.[11] As of mid-2014, Rutherford is no longer in the band but remains on good terms with the members, and Alex Ballew of Erra serves as "permanent fill-in drummer" according to a former Twitter bio of his.

Departure from Rise and Happiness in Self Destruction (2014–2015)[edit]

Throughout 2014, the band worked on new material and began playing a new song titled "Crows" live. On February 23, 2015, they released "My Old Ways", a new single off the album. They also announced their departure from Rise Records. On March 16th, 2015, "Crows" was released as a B-side. On July 17th of 2015, The Plot in You announced their new album, "Happiness in Self Destruction", which was released on October 16th, 2015.
