A follow-up album was released in 1995, titled I Can See Your Mom From Here. The band had gained a loyal local following in the Columbus area, alongside other indie punk rock bands, such as the New Bomb Turks, Thomas Jefferson Slave Apartments, Monster Truck Five, and Pica Huss. In 1995, Gaunt released a third album, Yeah, Me Too. The album was released by Amphetamine Reptile Records (the label had originally approached them to record a track for their Dope, Guns, and Fucking singles series, which they did earlier in the year), produced by Tim Mac (Halo Of Flies) - who would remain with the band for the rest of their career as live sound and pre-production engineer - and was recorded over the course of a few days. One last album was recorded for Thrill Jockey, entitled Kryptonite, and released in 1996. Kryptonite was released with a metallic lime green cover and contained lyrics about Superman, Lois Lane, and lost love.
Over the course of the next year, the band began to drift apart, but when they were approached by Warner Bros. Records to produce an album, they came together to create 1998's Bricks And Blackouts. The album was considered to be a departure from their previous work, and the band split shortly after the album was released. Tragically, Jerry Wick was killed in January 2001, when he was struck by a car while bicycling home in Columbus, Ohio. In 2005, Karcic and Brown opened a coffee shop called Yeah, Me Too, and Brown renewed his relationship with Warner Bros.
