Sunday's Best's Pedro Benito (guitar), John McGinnis of Neither Trumpets nor Drums (bass), ex-Knapsack singer/guitarist Blair Shehan, and former Pulley drummer Tony Palermo began their journey as the Jealous Sound at the tail end of the 1990s. They signed with Better Looking in summer 2000 and quickly issued a self-titled EP; it went on to sell 11,000 copies and show dates with At the Drive-In, the Get Up Kids, the Promise Ring, and Death Cab for Cutie allowed the band's buzz to soar. SPIN magazine to praise the Jealous Sound as "the rock you must have." The next year, Mojo Records offered the foursome a contract, but after weeks of making a deal, the label lost their distribution. The Jealous Sound were without a record home, but pride didn't stop them from getting back with Better Looking. Plans for a proper studio full-length came together in late 2002; the band headed into the studio with Tim O'Heir (Lou Barlow, Morphine, Juliana Hatfield) and Adam Wade of Shudder To Think stepped in for a departing Palermo before the year's end. Upon the release of "Kill Them With Kindness" the band hit the road becoming a veritable touring machine, playing numerous dates with artists like At the Drive-In, Death Cab for Cutie, The Get Up Kids, and The Promise Ring.
