The reunion resulted in several more shows and appearances on European festivals, as well as the recording of 's Broken Valley the band's first new studio album since and their first on the Sony -owned Epic Records.
The album was a commercial disappointment for Epic, and they parted ways with the band at the end of The label didn't understand who this band was and continually tried to mould us into something we weren't. Not to mention the illegal spyware they put on our album without our knowledge to try and prevent piracy, and the class-action lawsuit they lost because of it.
