|Unwritten Law chronology|
Here's to the Mourning is the fifth studio album by American rock band Unwritten Law, released in 2005 by Lava Records. Much of the lyrics on the album were co-written by singer/songwriter Aimee Allen. She and singer Scott Russo soon began a romantic relationship and formed the side project Scott & Aimee. Allen and Linda Perry contributed to the writing of the album's lead single "Save Me (Wake Up Call)," which reached #5 on US modern rock charts. Overall the album reached #51 on the Billboard 200, becoming the highest-ranking album of the band's career. The song "Celebration Song" was featured in the game MX vs. ATV Unleashed.
When the band began to record the album they were without a drummer (founding drummer Wade Youman had been expelled from the band in 2003, though he would return 10 years later). They were joined in the studio by Adrian Young of No Doubt and Tony Palermo of Pulley who filled in on drums for the recording. The band got along so well with Palermo that by the time of the album's release he had joined as their permanent drummer. Here's to the Mourning was also the band's last album with rhythm guitarist Rob Brewer, who was ejected from the group in March 2005, a month after the album's release.
