The band founded the Heroes & Villains Records label, under Vagrant Records which served as a platform for several of the bands side projects, like The New Amsterdams and Reggie and the Full Effect.
After 10 years together the band broke up in 2005. In 2008 they announced they would be getting back together for a reunion tour in 2009 to support the tenth anniversary re-release of their highly successful studio album “Something to Write Home About.”
