The Chino Hills, California-based A Thorn For Every Heart self-released its debut EP, "Silence Is Golden", in 2003, gaining much Internet exposure and creating an underground following. The band's first full-length album, "Things Aren't So Beautiful Now", was released on October 19, 2004 through Kickball Records, a small subsidiary of Interscope. The album was recorded in the summer of 2004 with producer Shawn Sullivan.
The band's second full-length effort, It's Hard to Move You, was set to be released on July 31, 2007. However, this album was leaked in its entirety on June 1, 2007. Also, the label Kickball Records was closed by its parent company Interscope Records, and the band is currently in discussion with Interscope regarding the rights to the recordings.
After multiple line-up changes, A Thorn For Every Heart self-released the EP "Pick Up The Pieces" on July 1, 2008.
On March 20, 2009, the band announced via a MySpace bulletin that it would be embarking on an indefinite hiatus.
