American Tourist began in 2001 with Vince Griffin, Ryan Castrellon, and Jesse Bates. Soon after the bands formation Castrellon and Bates moved away. Bates later played in Tin Fire Radio and currently plays in Silverton.

In 2002, Brooks Tipton, Kyle Smith, and Stephen Tucker joined up with Vince to complete the final line up for American Tourist. The four played together, and continued writing American Tourist songs together until 2005.

Kyle and Stephen both played in Lucky Father Browne (which later changed their name to Two Spines).
