imadethismistake is a folk punk / emotional hardcore band made up of Kylewilliam Campol, although he often has other musicians perform and record with him when the set involves more than an acoustic guitar. imadethismistake began with Kylewilliam in Toronto, Ontario, and at one point in time has called Coral Springs, Florida, Tallahassee, Florida, Providence, Rhode Island, &Richmond, Virginia home. He has so far released a , 2 EPs, 3 Full-Length albums, and a limited edition tape cassette.
imadethismistake was originally an acoustic project started in 2002 consisting solely of Kylewilliam playing a guitar and harmonica.
In 2006 Kyle began to manage a local record label, "safe!!!forever!!! recordings". In the same year, Kylewilliams's MySpace band profile was hacked and his songs "Staring Blindly into a Dull Sunset" and "We Ration their Smiles" were stolen, renamed as "She Looked Like Death" and "Regret", and made to look like the creations of a notorious internet hacker named "Andrewlandon".
imadethismistake expanded to an entire electric set in 2007, but the line-up changed in 2009 when Kyle moved from Florida up to Providence, Rhode Island. In 2009, the band has toured throughout the US, UK, and Europe playing small venues.
The third album, "Bow and Quiver" became available for pre-order in March, two months before its release on May 11. The album is much different from the band's earlier work. Reviews have said that the album has a stronger post-punk feel than prior albums.
In August 2010, the band released all of their previous recordings from "The Hatchet and The Princess" to "It's Okay" for free on their official page.
