he band's name is a play on the phrase "drop–dead gorgeous". They released their first EP entitled Be Mine, Valentine in January 2006, followed by their first full length album in May 2006, In Vogue. They originally could only tour for 3 months across the U.S. and through Canada due to the fact that both guitarists and their drummer (Kyle Browning, Dan Gustavson and Danny Cooper respectively) hadn't graduated high school. News also broke out on October 20th, 2006, on Rise Records' website, that they recently signed to Geffen/Suretone Records, and their new record would be produced by Ross Robinson. They filmed a music video for "Dressed for Friend Requests" when they played their homecoming show in Denver over their last 2006 tour before heading into the studio to record the follow up to In Vogue. The new record entitled "Worse Than A Fairy Tale" was released on August 14th 2007, and was leaked on the internet on July 31th. The band has seen some lineup shifts since August 2006 after 2 years of having the same six members, however as of June 2007 the original lineup was intact again. On December 20th, 2007, founding member and keyboardist/vocalist Aaron Rothe announced his departure from the band.
