The Autumn Offering was formed in 1999 while all the members were still in high school and by 2003, they had completed several regional tours and self-booked US tours. Hatebreed vocalist Jamey Jasta took notice of the band, and signed them to his own Stillborn Records in December 2003. The Autumn Offering released their debut album Revelations of the Unsung on July 27, 2004 through Stillborn.

In 2005, founding member and lead guitarist George Moore parted ways with the band and was soon after replaced by Tommy Church, guitarist from End of All, which later became known as Killwhitneydead. The Autumn Offering signed to Victory Records in September 2005. Their first release through the label was a reissue of their debut album in early 2006, which was followed by their second studio album Embrace the Gutter on May 16, 2006. Embrace the Gutter was recorded with Jason Suecof (Chimaira, Trivium) at Audiohammer Studios.

After completing Embrace the Gutter and a few national tours, singer Dennis Miller quit the band to pursue a normal life. The band continued on and eventually chose good touring friend Matt McChesney from Hell Within to replace him. The band also separated with original drummer Nick Gelyon in the studio during the recording of Embrace the Gutter. He was replaced by Brian Sculley soon after.

Requiem (2009)

The Autumn Offering entered the studio on February 1, 2009 to begin recording Requiem at AudioHammer Studios with Mark Lewis. Recording was finished by March 2009, and the album was later released on June 9, 2009 through Victory Records. A music video for the song "The Curtain Hits the Cast" from Requiem was released.

For the band's fourth studio album, The Autumn Offering took their music in a heavier direction contrasting the more pop and melody driven Fear Will Cast No Shadow. The album was described by the band as a more "mature" album featuring "longer songs, complex rhythms, and dynamic vocals." Further distancing themselves from their previous album, vocalist Matt McChesney wrote darker lyrics about substance abuse and being raised in a broken home, as opposed to songs about relationships. The song "Narcosis" is about McChesney's experience of being revived with an adrenaline shot after snorting heroin and cocaine at the same time.

Requiem became The Autumn Offering's first charting album, peaking at number 36 on Billboard's Top Heatseekers chart.

The Autumn Offering (2010)

For the band's fifth studio album, The Autumn Offering recruited two members: guitarist Jesse Nunn of Silent Civilian and Scum of the Earth who replaced Matt Johnson, and bassist Carl Bensley of Instinct Of Aggression who replaced Mike Poggione.

The Autumn Offering was released on August 31, 2010 through Victory Records.

Hiatus (2010-)

As of November 2010, The Autumn Offering has decided to go on an indefinite hiatus. While most of the members are still active making music, it is unclear when The Autumn Offering will release new music.

Matt McChesney is currently working on a side project as well. He started another band called Seven Days After, which has since disbanded.

Tommy Church has now officially joined Mushroomhead as Church, playing mainly guitar.

Matt Johnson has been producing and mixing music in Florida since 2008 for signed and local acts and can be reached at www.mattjproductions.com.

Nick Gelyon is playing drums in just gym shorts, somewhere in a basement in Buffalo.
