Egypt Central was formed on October 2, 2002. They wrote and recorded for one year until generating a buzz in their hometown of Memphis, Tennessee. After eight shows, they caught the attention of former Lava Records CEO Jason Flom. Flom offered the band a record deal after seeing their live performances. Egypt Central's self-titled debut album was recorded with producer Josh Abraham in Los Angeles. It experienced many delays, eventually being released by Fat Lady Music on January 15, 2008. Two singles were released to promote the album: "You Make Me Sick" and "Taking You Down". These two tracks also ended up being on the soundtrack of the video game WWE SmackDown vs. Raw 2009. They have performed with bands like Disturbed, Seether, Sevendust, Hurt, Red, In This Moment, and many others.

The album received many positive reviews from many sources. The album's title track was released as the first single on March 1, 2011. The band toured from March–May on the Tour of the American Dream tour with Cold and Kopek. The band toured on their Down the Hole headlining tour with Abused Romance and Candlelight Red in June and with Burn Halo and Red Line Chemistry in July. In addition to several festival appearances, the band toured briefly with Hinder, Saving Abel, and Adelitas Way in August. The band supported Pop Evil on a number of shows in September followed by a supporting leg of shows with Hinder and The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus in October. The band opened for Staind at the Q103 Thanksgiving Hangover, November 26 at the Washington Avenue Armory in Albany New York.
