By the End of Tonight (often abbreviated to BTEOT) was an American instrumental rock band from Alvin, Texas. They were signed to notable post-rock label Temporary Residence Limited for their life as a band.


By the End of Tonight formed in 2003 by Stefan Mach, Josh Smith, James Templeton, and Jeff Wilson. In 2006 Brett Taylor replaced Josh in the guitar role.

They have toured with Anathallo, Tera Melos, Sleeping People, Buxton, O Pioneers, etc.

They were the only band ever to be signed by Temporary Residence Limited based only on a demo (in their case, ...In a Letter to the Sandbox)

Jeff Wilson left the band in early 2008. No replacement was ever found and the band announced through a Myspace bulletin in early 2009 after almost a year of inactivity that they had disbanded.

The band reunited in 2011 for one show on 3/5 at Fitzgerald's as well as a set at the Free Press Houston Summerfest 2011.
