There for Tomorrow was formed at a time when all of its members were teenagers in high school, consisting of Maika Maile, Christopher Kamrada and Jay Enriquez. The band was originally called “The Kick Off”, but after playing numerous local shows, changed their name to “There For Tomorrow”, a name that had been suggested by Enriquez. The band released their debut album Point of Origin in the spring of 2004 without a label, as they were unsigned at the time. The album did not feature Christian Climer; he joined the band in 2006 as lead guitarist. Their music began playing on a local radio station and they performed showcase concerts, which led to stints on the southeastern leg of the Vans Warped Tour in 2006 and 2007. After the tour, they met with James Paul Wisner (Underoath, Paramore), who produced their 2007 Pages EP, which attracted the attention of the alternative rock label Hopeless Records. The band shot a music video for the single “Pages”, directed by Chris Grieder.
After signing onto Hopeless Records in 2008, Wisner returned to produce the band’s self-titled EP, which was released on 5th August 2008. It featured the first single “No More Room to Breathe”, which the band shot a music video for. Just over three months later, the band won the MTVU Woodie Award for breakout artist of the year, beating established acts such as All Time Low and We the Kings.
In February 2009, the band joined We the Kings and other bands on the Secret Valentine Tour. They also played on the 2009 Warped Tour. On June 9, 2009, There for Tomorrow’s debut full-length album was released by Hopeless Records, titled A Little Faster. The title song from the album was featured in the movie Ben 10: Alien Swarm, along with a music video of the band performing, interspersed with scenes from the movie. The song was also featured in promotional commercials and videos for Nerf’s Vortex during 2011. The band took part in the Take Action Tour in winter 2010, along with bands such as Mayday Parade and A Rocket To The Moon.
In an interview during July 2010, Maile announced the band’s plans to release a remix EP in the fall as well as tour one last time before the band began recording its next album. The remix EP, titled “Re:Creations,” was released on October 19, 2010. It featured several remixes as well as a new song, “Small World”.
The band’s second album, The Verge, was produced by Michael Elvis Baskette and released on June 28th, 2011. Before the album’s release, the band stated that The Verge would “sound bad in the best ways possible.” The band wrote and recorded the album in one month. They had originally written thirteen songs over the course of a week; only the first twelve songs made it on the album. “Hunt Hunt Hunt,” the first single from the album, was released on February 28, 2011. A documentary on the record was released along with the album, featuring 4 live studio sessions, choreographed and directed by Chris Grieder. Maile stated in a 2011 Warped Tour interview that his favorite song off The Verge was “BLU”.
The band played every date on the Vans Warped Tour 2011. In 2012, they recorded and released a new demo, “Road to Nowhere”, which was featured in the 2012 promotional commercials for Nerf’s Vortex. The band joined the 2012 “Beyond the Blue” tour in Japan, along with acts like Mayday Parade, Every Avenue and singer William Beckett. There for Tomorrow announced their first headlining tour, taking place in the autumn of 2012, as well as a UK/Europe tour, also in the fall. The headlining tour started on September 14, 2012 along with the bands Set It Off and Divided by Friday, and will end October 7, while the UK/Europe tour will last eight days, beginning November 8 with Deaf Havana and Canterbury.
