Formed in the late 1990's, under the name "Jojo" until later renaming to "Skrape." They would release two albums through RCA Records. Their 2001 debut New Killer America spawned two singles in "Waste" and "Isolated". Tours with the likes of Pantera, Slayer and Morbid Angel saw the album sell in excess of 100,000 copies in the US.
Their second album Up the Dose was released in 2004 with little support from their label, who had recently been taken over by J Records. Beforehand, the band toured with Soil, Static-X, and Twisted Method. The album had been finished since mid-2003, and the band was set to release "Summer Song" as a single, but the album was pushed back several times, eventually being released in January. Faced with the prospect of releasing a single entitled "Summer Song" in January, they changed the name of the song to "Stand Up (Summer Song)". A couple of months after Up the Dose's release, the band was dropped from the label. Drummer Will Hunt issued a press release hinting at possible future activities with Skrape, but nothing has happened other than a reunion gig in 2005 opening for Dark New Day. They are now disbanded.
