In 2006, the band independently recorded and released its first full-length album, "Higher Ground". In a review for, Brandon Allin wrote:

"Higher Ground is, without a doubt, one of the most impressive, commendable, and downright dazzling offerings a label-free group has ever constructed. The hooks shine at every opportunity, the instrumentation is impeccable, and the overall presentation is near flawless."fact|date=April 2008
In June 2007, they released "The Decay" which draws more from traditional ska and reggae than any previous release.
