History

The group formed in 2004 and quickly released an EP entitled Her Escape in May 2005. They followed the release with a heavy tour schedule, which included dates on the Warped Tour and Taste of Chaos tours.[2] The group won an online vote to open the Taste of Chaos date in St. Paul, Minnesota the next year, by which time the group had signed to Victory Records.[2] The group's first record for Victory, Let Your Body Take Over, appeared in October 2006 and was a regional sales success,[4] although it received mixed reviews from press agencies.[1][3][5][6][7][8][9] The group continued touring throughout 2007 and has since written a new album, What a Terrible Thing to Say, which was released on February 19, 2008. The album peaked at #31 on the Billboard Top Heatseekers chart.[10] In spring 2008 Four Letter Lie toured with A Skylit Drive, Oh, Sleeper, and Memphis May Fire and spent the summer touring with Dance Gavin Dance and A Static Lullaby then finished out 2008 with Pierce the Veil, Emarosa and Breathe Carolina.

On 30 March 2009, the band posted a blog on their MySpace announcing that Kevin had departed from the band and is now playing for A Day to Remember.

On 4 July 2009, the band announced via MySpace that their drummer, Derek Smith, had left the band to pursue a rap career with his new band, Modern Sunshine, and that John Waltmann would be switching from bass to guitar.[11]

The band's third album, A New Day, was released on 13 October through Victory Records.
