Formed in St. Cloud, Minnesota in 2007, For All Those Sleeping combines bouncy, heartache-filled pop punk with metalcore to create their own dynamic, hybrid sound. Consisting of singer Mike Champa, guitarist and singer Jerad Pierskalla, guitarist and keyboardist David Volgman-Stevens, and drummer Ethan Trekell, who all met in high school, as well as bassist London Snetsinger, who joined the band in 2009, the quintet has a sound that punctuates its melodic yearning with brutal breakdowns. After self-releasing their The Lies We Live EP in 2008, the band got the attention of Fearless Records, who signed them the following year. Their full-length debut, Cross Your Fingers, arrived in 2010 through the label, and was quickly followed up with a second album, Outspoken, in 2012.
