Inception and debut album (2005-present):
The band was formed in 2005 by Johnny Collier, Andy Kalyvas, Chad Nichols, John Oberbeck and Nate Rockwell. The band was named after a song on pop-punk band Cartel's "The Ransom EP". In 2007, Write This Down released two self-produced EPs. Although their first EP is titled Alarm the Alarm, the original version of the song "Alarm the Alarm" does not appear on this recording. It is released on the Write This Down EP, which was released on September 3, 2007.
After releasing two independent EPs, Write This Down signed to Tooth & Nail Records to record their first full-length studio album. Oberbeck and Kalyvas left the band prior to recording the album. Since then they have added Nick Lombardo (bass) and Mike Kuwica (lead guitar) to the lineup. Their self-titled album, Write This Down, was released on April 20, 2010. Since the release of their debut album, the band has been touring with bands such as Blindside, The Letter Black and Project 86.
A second album, Lost Weekend, was released on June 5, 2012.
