Metalcore outfit Scars of Tomorrow emerged from California's Orange County in October of 2000 with their own West Coast take on East Coast hardcore, often showcasing a melodic sense among otherwise blistering music. They first debuted in 2002 on Thorp Records with All Things Change, following up the next March with Design Your Fate. Guitarist Ruben Martinez and drummer Mike Madariaga left after the latter album, and vocalist Mike Milford, guitarist Carlos Garcia, and bassist Robert Bradley were joined by Chris Warner on drums and Dave Rodriguez on guitar; the crew signed with Victory in May 2003. The band's label debut appeared the following February, entitled Rope Tied to the Trigger. Crossing North America several times over with bands like Himsa, Atreyu, and Norma Jean, Scars of Tomorrow issued The Horror of Realization in October 2005 before heading out to support it with Bury Your Dead. About two weeks prior to leaving on tour, however, everyone but Milford decided they were done with the band. Undeterred, he quickly recruited new members -- guitarists Joey Atkins and Kevin Fifield, bassist Dan Bieranowski, and drummer Ryan Severino -- and shows went on as scheduled. Thorp Records released The Beginning Of, a compilation of early and out of print recordings, the subsequent March. With new drummer Justin Salinas (ex-Inked in Blood) and bassist Mike Boccuzzi next on board, Scars of Tomorrow's next studio full-length, The Failure in Drowning, appeared on Halloween 2006. That record would prove to be Scars of Tomorrow's last. Following a subsequent spring tour, the guys decided to finally put the band to rest and start over fresh. Scars of Tomorrow played their last show in May 2007. ~ Corey AparPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
