AWAKE, the band’s third full-length, touches on jazz, classical and live IDM. It was released in 2006 on the Zunior label. Their full catalog is available through Zunior, an online record label run by Dave Ullrich of The Inbreds.

In 2006 the band Recorded their last and final album at Little Bullhorn Studios (Wooden Stars, Kepler, Weights & Measures etc…) and disbanded shortly after playing the Ottawa Bluesfest that summer. There are no future plans at the moment to press and release of this final album.
