Die Trying was a four piece rock band formed in 2001 and based in Sacramento, California. After signing a contract with Island Records in 2002, they released their first single, "Oxygen's Gone", followed by their self-titled debut album on June 10, 2003. Jacoby Shaddix of Papa Roach appears on the song "Conquer The World" from that album. The bands name comes from their relentless effort in trying to make it and willingness to do anything. They would either make it or "Die Trying."
