Santa Cruz Metalcore outfit ARSONISTS GET ALL THE GIRLS was assembled during 2005, initially as a less than serious musical endeavour, by guitar player Arthur Alvarez and drummer Garin Rosen. ARSONISTS GET ALL THE GIRLS, signing to Process Records for the February 2006 album 'Hits From The Bow', toured the USA in union with AND THE HERO FAILS in June. By this juncture the group had added second guitarist Nick Cardinelli.

In May 2007 ARSONISTS GET ALL THE GIRLS embarked on the 'Captain America Is Dead' US tour alongside KNIGHTS OF THE ABYSS and ELYSIA.

The group switched labels to Century Media Records for second album 'The Game Of Life', produced by Zach Ohren at Castle Ultimate Studios in Oakland, which emerged in August 2007. A promotional video was filmed for the track 'Shoe Shine For Neptune'. Live dates that month had the band paired with DEAR LIFE. Continuing the live campaign, ARSONISTS GET ALL THE GIRLS hooked up with THE TONY DANZA TAP DANCE EXTRAVAGANZA and VEIL OF MAYA throughout October.

Tragically, on the morning of 30th November 2007, the day after his 21st birthday, bassist Patrick Mason was found dead in a friend's house. The musician had died from alcohol poisoning.The band performed a memorial show at the 418 venue in Santa Cruz to aid with funeral costs. Other bands performing included ANIMOSITY, ELYSIA and KNIGHTS OF THE ABYSS.

On 11th January 2008 the group inducted two new members, guitarist Derek Yarra, replacing Nick Cardinelli, and bassist Adam Swan. That same month Century Media re-issued 2006's 'Hits From The Bow' with new artwork. Live dates commenced in February packaged with MY CHILDREN, MY BRIDE, STRAY THE PATH and FOR THE FALLEN DREAMS. The follow up 'Super Massive Fist' US tour had the group sharing stages until May with IMPENDING DOOM, SEA OF TREACHERY and DEAD TO FALL.

Membership changes saw Stephen Dean retiring from bass and new keyboard player Sean Richmond enrolled.
