Curl Up and Die was a mathcore band formed in late 1998 from Las Vegas, Nevada. CUaD started as a band struggling to find a solid line-up. Finally solidifying the roster, they recorded their first demo. This roster held until April 1999, where the band then recruited Jesse Fitts as the new drummer. It was at this point that the line-up began to stabilize and hence led to touring. After a few more roster changes including the loss of bassist Geoff Bergman, the band would finally record their first release in early 2000: "1998". Shortly thereafter, CUaD would have enough funding to record its EP, "The Only Good Bug Is a Dead Bug", which was picked up by Status Recordings (Countervail, National Acrobat) in early 2001.Read More...
The group eventually signed with Revelation Records in 2001 and their debut full-length CD, "Unfortunately We're Not Robots", would be released by Revelation Records in May 2002. Back in 2001, before the release of their first full-length album, the band also had ideas of recording an album of cover songs including covers of bands such as Slayer, Propaghandi, Josie and the Pussycats, Minor Threat, and Lifetime. The band continued on to record two EPs, each sharing a respective half of a broken sentence; the first having the title, "We May Be Through With the Past..." and the second with the title, "But The Past Ain't Through With Us". The former would be released through the aforementioned label, Status Recordings, while the later by Revelation Records. Upon obtaining a large underground following, they would continue on to record and release one more full length album titled, "The One Above All, the End of All That Is", before breaking up in late 2005 stating: "After almost seven years of being a band we have decided to call it quits. We want to say to everyone who has ever supported us in any way; thank you, this has truly been an amazing experience".

- LyricsWhen we stood and wiped away your eyes and reached for our heart's last beat. not once did you look back for me. not once did you hold me without the thought of him. switched off minds melt away in processed conversation. barely breathing, i am the diseased. we are the hidden agendas staring as we are decaying, eagerly waiting to breathe (see). we are all dead. these burnt buildings for him and a city worn away, i'll crush those roses before we meet again. and for the fallen, i've finally given up on you. (singed lips bleed softly from all to hell.) there's no fear in machinery. there's no point in any of this.
- LyricsWe're lost love with nothing to give.
Our hearts are over-medicated.
An overdosed America.
Sharing a closet with our skeletons.
And in being needed, not what we need.
- LyricsMy time was on your time if you were on your own time. Your sleep stole my mind.
A fear in circles through waiting around. But now, it's over.
And we aren't always ourselves.
And even after it hurts worse we still make the same mistakes.
Burnt out on being burned and a broken heart always...

- LyricsWe set our heads to rest and fall out of form and grow numb enough to never move again. we lose our sights and these roses no longer blossom. i fail to hear these sounds now. tightly our hands felt for eachother's when we said goodbye. the exquiste architecture ruined our blessed nights and we can no longer pretend. for months for these memories to melt away at the most akward of moments. this is my last word, my lost love. we will never meet again.
