As of 2007, no original members remained and by 2008 the band had declared to have broken up on their MySpace. This was due to problems with the record label Trustkill, revealed on "Ryan's Rock Show". Hopesfall started as a post-hardcore band in 1998. They released their first album, The Frailty of Words, soon after on the Christian hardcore / punk label DTS Records.
