The group formed in 1996 as 'Drowned' but changed their name to 'InMe' after signing with MFN in 2001 as they decided that there were too many bands with a similar name. Joe Morgan came up with the name after being asked where the music came from.
When Music for Nations was dissolved in a large company buy out, InMe signed to V2 and created their own label Pandora's Box.
In July 2006, Joe Morgan left the band to pursue a different career, and was replaced by Greg McPherson (Dave's younger brother) of Centiment.
In August 2006, InMe released "Caught:White Butterfly", a live album, documenting their show at the Astoria on December 17th 2005. The accompanying DVD was released on October 9th.
August 2007 saw the return of InMe on tour to promote new single I Won't Let Go, released on August 20th, taken from the upcoming album Daydream Anonymous which was released on September 10th alongside another promotion tour.
In 2008, InMe added a new guitarist to their list of members - Ben Konstantinovic. On June 1, the band uploaded the track "Belief Revival" (taken from the upcoming album Herald Moth) to their MySpace page. Before official announcement fans speculated about which song from Herald Moth will be released as the first single, with many fans believing it to be the track entitled "Single of the Weak".
On 4th June 2009, speculation was then ended with a circular message sent to members of the InMe mailing list from InMe management. The email stated that the single will indeed be "Single of the Weak" and announced the release date to be 10th August 2009. This was then changed on the 15th July when band member Greg McPherson announced the release date had moved to 17th August 2009 with a post on the official forums. Fans are still eagerly awaiting its release.
On 29 June 2009, the band's MySpace page showed the album artwork for Herald Moth, as well as a release date of 31 August.
Herald Moth was released on 14th September through Graphite Records. It reached #68 in the UK chart.
On October 13 2009 InMe announced the departure of second guitarist Ben Konstantinovic in a myspace blog stating -
Me, Greg & Si have come to the decision to continue without Ben in the band. This was a hard choice to make as we're all good friends but InMe requires a level of absolute commitment that Ben couldn't give. I sat down & personally discussed it all with Ben & it was totally amicable & open.
He is an amazing guitarist & it's a pleasure performing with him & I'll continue to do so outside of InMe. We will remain a 3 piece for the foreseeable future & will not be rushing into anything. The album is doing well & things are on the up!
We wish Ben the best of luck with all his other musical ventures.
