Jimmy Ryan, a member of Haste the Day, at the time, decided to depart the band, when they were in Indianapolis, Indiana on December 30, 2005, doing a concert, where he is a native of the city. The group was formed, when Ryan selected Joel David Lauver to be a guitarist, keyboardist, and vocalist, Eli Larch Chastain to be a guitarist, Bill Scott to be a bassist, and Phil Hook to be their drummer.
Their first concert occurred in the city of Noblesville, Indiana, on November 24, 2007. The band's national debut was during a performance at the Cornerstone Festival, the subsequent year. Trenches was to perform, in 2009, at the same festival, yet they were replaced on the line-up listing.
On August 4, 2016, Trenches released an instrumental track, "The Death of All Mammoths", from the upcoming album, Reckoner.
