Gasoline sent the band into the studio to record their first full length "The Subtle Dynamics Between the Windshield and the Rearview", but the label quickly dissolved leaving Simply Waiting to foot the bill. The band did just that and pressed on, touring the east coast (in a self-booked DIY tour) in support of the album. After several years as the bands rhythmic grounding, Brandon Guthrie parted ways with the band to try out several other projects, ultimately landing firmly with Toads and Mice. Justin Crim took over as drummer for Simply Waiting.
More east coast touring racked up 19 states for the band from MO to FL to RI and lots in between. During one such tour the band was introduced via phone to Chicago producer Mark McClusky. The band headed to Chicago and tracked 6 songs. After more shows both local and regional, Justin Crim left the band and eventually pursued a recording degree at Full Sail University in FL.
Tyler Campbell (formerly of March and Collapse) and his brother Justin (JC) were added to the band - Tyler on drums and Justin as an additional guitar. After some local shows and a spot on the Cincinnati Warped Tour, the band made its way back up to Chicago to work with Mark "Line Rider" McClusky where the remaining tracks for what would become the band's second full length "Atmosphere" were recorded. After some time Tyler and Justin Campbell left the band to pursue other musical interests. Jon Ryan Miller (who had rehearsed with the band, and even played the band’s first show at the Tipp City Roundhouse) was brought back into the fold as the band’s drummer.
Long time friend and original member of the band, Josh Guild departed from the lineup. Simply Waiting wrote new material and went to northern Ohio to record with producer Ben Schigel and engineer Tony Gammalo at Spider Studios. The band tracked three songs, “The Signals”, “Terracentricty”, and “Inches From”. Simply Waiting continues to work on new songs and play locally and regionally and are hoping to make it back up to Spider Studios to work towards their third full length album.
