Band of Horses was formed in 2004 around Ben Bridwell and Mat Brooke, after the split of their previous band, Carissa's Wierd. The group is noticed by the label Sub Pop by opening the concerts of Iron and Wine in Seattle and released in 2005 a first live recorded EP, sold exclusively during concerts and on the label's website. The album Everything All the Time is recorded in the wake of Phil Ek (Modest Mouse, Built to Spill, The Shins) in production, and appears March 21, 2006 on the same label. He is generally well received and even delivers two singles, The Great Salt Lake and The Funeral. Band of Horses is often compared to My Morning Jacket, partly because of the similarity of the two singers.
In July 2006, Mat Brooke left Band of Horses to focus on his side projects, including Grand Archives (also signed at Sub Pop). A statement from the group said that originally he planned to contribute only to writing songs. A European tour is made in spring 2007.
