Once under contract with Epic, the group released a live EP called Motion in late 1997. In Late-May of the following year they released their first full-length studio album titled Fallout. The album was praised by critics, and the band went on a rigorous, 15-month promotional tour opening for the likes of Creed, Everclear, Fuel, Big Wreck, Stabbing Westward and The Watchmen.
However, the album failed to chart, the tour ended, and the band returned home for a much-needed break. The band also sought new management. It continued as a trio, with Kennedy solely on guitars for a few local festivals throughout the coming year. The three remaining members eventually secluded in Kennedy’s basement studio to write and record in preparation for their next album, which was recorded during the fall of 2000.
Their second full-length album, Second Skin, was released in June 2001, and the band went on the road again, this time with Alessandro Cortini on rhythm guitar and backing vocals. Stagnant sales of Second Skin forced the band to end its relationship with Epic in 2002. The band formally split shortly thereafter in order to pursue other interests. Most prominent is Kennedy’s participation with Creed members in the band Alter Bridge, for whom he provides guitar and lead vocals. Cortini toured with Nine Inch Nails on keyboards from 2005 onward and collaborated on its latest efforts Ghosts I-IV and The Slip.
