Irek Orzeł became new drummer, and Tomek Antoniuk a guitarist. In the spring of the same year the band released its first demo. It contained such songs as "Don’t Give Up," which was vocally featured by the band's friend - Natalia "Zagi" Wójcik. Rotten Bark toured promoting the demo until the end of 2007. The year 2008 brought further changes in the band composition.
It was also the year of work on their first album. In May, a new lead singer - Marcin "Procent" Jawicz appeared but after 2 months there was another change and another vocalist of Rotten Bark became Kamil "Drops" Malczyk - former leader of the Better Than Nothing band. August 2008 was spent on recording vocals for their debut album. Due to an unforeseen hardware failure, all the material for the CD was lost, and the band decided they want to create something completely new. Next months were the period of metamorphosis - the current style of the band was formed.
Rotten Bark began touring more and to create new songs. Since June 2009 the band had collaborated with the manager, and the outcome of this collaboration have been frequent concerts in various places in Poland. Summer holidays were filled with concerts. The first music video titled "You" was also shot during that period, but once again, unluckily to the band, the material was lost. At the end of the summer the band was working in the studio owned by Mietek Jurecki in Lublin to record their first single called Chillin 'Out. The song Don’t Give Up featuring Natalia also appeared on the CD.
The band leader – Adi took care of mixing up the single. In May 2010 the band decided to work on their own and from that time Adrian functions as manager of the team. Around July 7 Rotten Bark began recording their debut album in State Of Sound Studio (studio owned by guitarists of Rotten Bark). A few weeks after the August concert at the Coke Live Festival 2010 (at the same time after the completion of recording drums in the studio) drummer - Irek left the band and was replaced by Przemek "Doych" Niemiec. Year 2011 is the time of some career breakthrough for the band. Rotten Bark became a finalist of one of the biggest TV Shows in Poland – Must Be The Music.
Couple weeks later the band come back to television playing “King Of The Disco” on Top Trendy Festival 2011 in Sopot. In July 2011 Przemek Niemiec left the band and was replaced by new drummer – Łukasz “Bolo” Tomczak. Just two days after taking Bolo to the team they played big show supporting Paramore at Rock In Summer Festival in Warsaw. In the meantime, the band signed to label My Music. At the end of August the band invited fans from all over the country and did their third music video called "I Don't Mind". Currently the band is working on new songs, and deals with matters related to the official CD release. Read more on Last.fm.
