The band started in 2009 when guitarists Diego Farias and Daniel Braunstein were writing music together. Singers Michael Barr and Diego's brother, Gus Farias, joined the band along with Raad Soudani on bass and Chris Khoury playing the drums. Their first EP, The Concept of Dreaming, was announced to be released December 2009 but publication came to a halt when guitarist Daniel Braunstein left the band due to time constraints with university and was no longer able to participate actively in the band. He was replaced by guitarist Daniel Schwartz. After being signed on with Mediaskare Records and Outerloop Management in early November 2010, the band quickly released their debut EP "The Concept of Dreaming" on November 16, 2010.
In early 2011, the band played several tours throughout North America with such bands as Arsonists Get All the Girls, The Contortionist, and Structures. The band's debut full-length, VIA was released and distributed through Mediaskare Records on September 27, 2011 and reached #1 on the iTunes Rock & Metal Charts. 2011 also marked the same year that drummer Chris Khoury parted ways with the band, leading to Daniel Schwartz taking over the drums at shows, who then quit later that year. In early 2012, they found a new permanent replacement drummer, Nick Ursich. Since late 2011 Volumes has only had one guitarist. Between April and May 2012, Volumes went on a tour of Europe alongside bands Veil of Maya, Betraying the Martyrs and Vildhjarta. Between January and February 2013, the band toured the United States with Of Mice & Men, Woe, Is Me, The Devil Wears Prada, Texas in July and Capture the Crown. On July 15, 2014, Volumes released their second full-length album No Sleep which reached again at #1 on the iTunes Rock and Metal Charts featuring their single, "Vahle". Between late August and late September of 2014, the band supported Crown the Empire on the Welcome to the Resistance tour, along with The Family Ruin, Secrets, and Ice Nine Kills.
Volumes contributed to Fearless Records' compilation Punk Goes Pop 6 with their cover of "Hold On, We're Going Home" by Drake featuring Majid Jordan.
Volumes performed on the entire Vans Warped Tour 2014.
Volumes newest record NO SLEEP landed at #40 on Billboard Top 200.
On 8 December 2014, the band announced they will support Rise Records artist Of Mice & Men on their European tour with The Amity Affliction as direct support. On 10 February 2015, the band announced they will be supporting Of Mice & Men on their headliner tour entitled "The Full Circle Tour".
