Formation and EP (2006 – 2007)
A Skylit Drive's original members all met while attending Lodi High School in Lodi. Cory La Quay (drummer) attended Franklin High School in Elk Grove, California along with Matt Mingus (drummer) of Dance Gavin Dance. Their debut EP, She Watched the Sky, was released early in 2007 on Tragic Hero. Following this the group toured with Four Letter Lie, Blessthefall, Scary Kids Scaring Kids, Greeley Estates, Oh Sleeper, The Blackout, Alesana, Before Their Eyes, Dance Gavin Dance, Kenotia, Pierce the Veil, and From First to Last. Jordan Blake left the band around November 2007 because he was not taking care of his voice, and eventally got very sick and had 11 ulcers in his lungs. Blake revealed this himself, as did the members of A Skylit Drive. Blake also said he did not quit, and was not kicked out. It was a mutual thing, the guys in A Skylit Drive knew he needed a break for hs health, and Blake said "I didn't wanna hold my boys back". He is currently with Watchout! Theres Ghosts. Jonny Craig replaced him for a short while after leaving Dance Gavin Dance, though before joining bands Emarosa and Isles & Glaciers.
Wires... and the Concept of Breathing (2008)
A demo version of "Knights of the Round," was performed live with Jonny Craig as the lead vocalist during his temporary tour with the band in November 2007. Though Craig had written lyrics to the song, only the chorus or refrain, was kept in the final album version sang by their new-found, permanent vocalist Michael Jagmin. Michael “Jag” Jagmin, formerly of Odd Project, replaced Craig permanently for vocals. Craig Mabbitt was also trying for lead vocals after getting kicked out of blessthefall, but accidentally called the manager of Escape the Fate instead of the manager for A Skylit Drive and ended up being in that band instead. The full length Wires...and the Concept of Breathing appeared in May 2008. The album hit #171 on the U.S. Billboard 200, as well as #9 on the Top Heatseekers Chart and #20 on the Top Independent Albums chart. Shortly after the release of the album they filmed a music video for the nonprofit group To Write Love on Her Arms directed by Robby Starbuck. They appeared at The Bamboozle Left in 2008 and toured in the summer of that year with Sky Eats Airplane, Breathe Carolina, and Emarosa.
They toured with Greeley Estates, August Burns Red, Sky Eats Airplane, This or the Apocalypse, Escape the Fate, Alesana, Chiodos, and Silverstein during fall in 2008. They also filmed a live DVD called "Let Go of the Wires", which was release on December 9, 2008.
In Mid-November the band released a music video for the song "Wires and the Concept of Breathing". The video can be viewed through their MySpace profile. Their song "This Isn't the End" is now the music video on their MySpace directed by Robby Starbuck about teen suicide in conjunction with the non-profit organization To Write Love on Her Arms. Both videos are on their first full length album, Wires... and the Concept of Breathing, and the band has shot other videos for songs on the album. They have announced that there will be five brand new videos on their upcoming DVD "Let Go of the Wires" as well as live performance footage from a show at the Glasshouse in Pomona, CA. The DVD was released exclusively at Hot Topic on December 9, 2008.
