    Letter Kills formed in August, 2002 after Shelton moved from Texas to Temecula. The singer had met Cordova in Texas earlier when Cordova's previous band LX45 was on the road. So, when Shelton arrived in California, he hooked up with Cordova, who was already playing with drummer Paul Remund. With the addition of local musicians guitarist Dustin Lovelis and bassist Kyle Duckworth, the lineup was complete.

    The band started writing original songs right away, and before long it were playing out everywhere from birthday parties to dive clubs. With every show Letter Kills got more comfortable with each other's playing style and personality, and before long they were chugging like a powerful machine. "At first we were really concerned about whether or not we would gel as musicians," Shelton admitted. "But we stretched our boundaries and got used to playing with each other really fast. Everything was really natural, and we've grown to be like brothers."

    In March 2003, Letter Kills recorded their debut three-song EP at Indigo Ranch Studios in Malibu, California over a three day period. All three tracks, "Don't Believe," "Radio Up" and "Clock is Down" appear on the band's album. A label deal came soon after, thanks in part to Finch guitarist Randy Strohmeyer, who had gone to high school with Lovelis, and loved Letter Kills' hard-hitting tunes. Strohmeyer plugged the band to one record company, which auditioned it, then offered it a deal. Instead of signing right away, Letter Kills hired a lawyer, who played the band's demo for various other record companies. It wasn't long before the group signed with Island.
