    Biography

    Ben Bridwell (guitar, vocals) and Mat Brooke (guitar) formed the band in 2004 after the break-up of their previous band, Carissa's Wierd. The band initially received attention from Sub Pop after opening for Iron & Wine during Seattle area shows. In 2005, the band released Tour EP, which was sold exclusively at shows and on Sub Pop's website. Its debut full-length, Everything All the Time was recorded in 2005 with producer Phil Ek and released on March 21, 2006 to generally positive reviews.

    On July 13, 2006, Band of Horses appeared on the Late Show with David Letterman without Brooke, who left the band on July 25, 2006 to start a new band, Grand Archives, that has since signed to Sub Pop. The band's current members have since relocated to Bridwell's native South Carolina. The band's current lineup includes Ben Bridwell, Creighton Barrett, Ryan Monroe and Tyler Ramsey, who also provides opening performances on tour, as well as bassist Bill Reynolds and guitarist Blake Mills.

    Band of Horses' second album, Cease to Begin, was recorded in neighboring North Carolina and released on October 9, 2007. The album was voted one of the ten best albums of 2007 by Paste magazine.

    The band's song "The Funeral" appeared in television advertisements for SUVs; in the trailer for the 2006 film Penelope; in the 2009 film Assassination of a High School President; in the television series CSI, Criminal Minds, One Tree Hill, Numb3rs, Kyle XY, The Best Years; in the skateboarding video Fully Flared, and in the video game Skate. It was sampled in Kid Cudi's song "The Prayer". Their songs have appeared in other forms of media, including television, film trailers and video games. In 2007, the band's song "No One's Gonna Love You" was played in the first season of Chuck, in the season 1 finale of 90210, in the season 5 finale of Numb3rs, and in the 2009 film Zombieland. The song "The General Specific" was used in the episode "Roman Holiday" of Gossip Girl. In 2008, they appeared in a Ford commercial for the company's new SYNC voice recognition audio control system. In 2008, Band of Horses played at the Glastonbury Festival and T in the Park, as well as sub-headlining the Roskilde Festival as part of their European tour. They played at the 2008 Bridge School Benefit concert.

    In a 2008 Rolling Stone interview, the band stated they would be entering the studio in October to begin recording their third album. Ben Bridwell stated he had about 27 songs written already. In May 2009, producer Phil Ek stated that he was recording the band's third album in North Carolina. Ben Bridwell mentioned the new album, Night Rainbows, by name several times while introducing new songs during the band's summer 2009 tour.
