they were never really together. a long time ago, Alex posted a bulletin on myspace saying he was too busy with other things, and Mark had done ALL the work. Alex hadn't contributed anything at all. all Mark did was simply change "Mark & Alex" to "Mark Crisman".
This band is only getting so much exposure because both Mark and Alex are so good looking, and all of you little 14 year old girls who are friends with Alex on myspace obviously has to LOVEEE!!!111!! his band.
