After the break up of Eighteen Visions in April 2007, frontman James Hart didn’t want to quit the music business. His manager set him up with a meeting with Zac Maloy, formerly of The Nixons, and they immediately hit it off. After nearly nine months of writing the record with Maloy and working with Daniel Adair of Nickelback, Chris Chaney of Jane’s Addiction, Neal Tiemann, Keith Barney and Synyster Gates of Avenged Sevenfold, they had a full-length debut record. The album was due to be released in 2008 through Island Records, but when the band was finished with the album, Island elected not to release it, leaving the band with a finished album, and no label to release it on. So, Burn Halo’s manager started his own label, Rawkhead Rekords, and distributed the record through Warner Music Group.
The lead single from the album, “Dirty Little Girl”, ft. Synyster Gates has reached #19 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock chart.
In 2008, the song “Save Me”, which is the second single, was featured in the video game WWE SmackDown vs. Raw 2009.
On March 16, 2009, Burn Halo announced, via MySpace, that Ryan Folden had parted ways with the band and that Timmy Russell would be replacing him on the drums.
In late 2010, the band confirmed on their official Facebook page that they are going into the studio to record a follow-up to their self-titled debut album, with a hopeful release before summer of next year. Then, on October 4th, the band whent on to say “Next album will be even more rockin than the first. Heavier, faster, more metal and more in your face”
On March 30,2011 Burn Halo streamed the new song “Tear It Down” on Noisecreep, and confirmed the name of the new album. On April 14th band stated on Facebook that a music video for the first single “Tear It Down” would begin filming soon.
