The album was engineered, mixed and produced by Mark Hallman. Additional musicians contributing to the album included Courtney Audain, Glenn Fukunaga and Michael Ramos. The band played its final show together at Liberty Lunch in Austin, May 28, 1998. In December 2010, Billy, Juliet and Steven met at the Congress House Studio in Austin, Texas, to record four brand new original songs along with an Aerosmith cover (Dream On) to be included on an upcoming EP release for April 2011. This meeting would mark the first time since May of 1998 that these three musicians have recorded any music together.
Wiley Koepp of the Austin band Scorpio Rising sat in on drums and Ashley Glover of Austin band Dn'A sang all vocals. Mark Hallman assumed the role of producer once again. The title of the 5-song EP is Heroes for Ghosts and will be darker, moodier and a bit on the heavier rock side than anything previously released by the band. The songs are longer, more complex and draw heavily on inspirations from 70's classic LPs: Pink Floyd - Dark Side of the Moon, Led Zeppelin - In Through the Out Door, Rush - A Farewell to Kings, and Yes - Fragile.
