Pthalo finished their self-released full length, simply titled "Pthalo" in November of 2003. The songs on this record have demonstrated their diversity by landing them spots both in extreme sports videos all the way to dark independent film productions. "Gated" appears in Mark France's film, Midnight of the Mind currently in post-production - as well as collaborating on music specifically for various other independent film productions. With a video release for "Chasm" in the summer of 2004, Pthalo also carried further their vision into the visual realm, complimenting to the film projects they have pursued. "Chasm" was promoted to 55 outlet programmers in July and August of 2004 including MTV, MTV2, Fuse, and Much Music and received favorable airplay on 120 Minutes Latin America. With a regional touring schedule that expandrf to the midwest and south of the tri-state area, early CMJ charting in Washington state and Arizona, Pthalo brought their music to the masses shortly before the demise of the band in April of 2006.
