They released their first album, Perfect Self, on Columbia Records in 2001 and a video for the song "Pain" received airplay on MTV2. They released Every Given Moment in April 2003. After participating in the Jägermeister Music Tour with Hed PE, Breaking Benjamin, Systematic, 68rouge and Saliva, Columbia Records cut their touring support, and dropped the band. Due to this, and an impending Life of Agony reunion, Stereomud went their separate ways in July 2003, three months after the release of Every Given Moment.
Lowery formed Dark New Day in 2004 featuring Brett Hestla, Troy McLawhorn, Will Hunt and later Clint Lowery. On June 14, 2005, the band released their first album, Twelve Year Silence through Warner Bros. Records. The first single from the effort, "Brother", was a top 10 hit on active stations. On September 5, 2006, the band released an EP, Black Porch, through the iTunes store. The only single that was released was the acoustic version of "Follow the Sun Down".
Eye Empire was formed in October 2009. The band included Lowery, guitarist B.C. Kochmit, former Submersed singer Donald Carpenter and Ryan Bennett on drums. During this time, Lowery also co-produced and co-wrote on the Sevendust album, Cold Day Memory. He reunited with Stuck Mojo at the end of 2014. In 2015, Lowery was asked by Mike Mushok and Adam Gontier to join their new band, Saint Asonia.
Lowery took over as the touring guitarist for Seether, replacing his brother Clint by doing so. Lowery was asked to fill-in on guitar and backing vocals while the band supported Nickelback on their eight-week Feed the Machine European and UK tour in the early 2018. The tour also included a stop in South Africa for Seether, after a six year absence. Lowery left Saint Asonia in mid-2018 due to commitments with Seether.
