The band came into the mainstream with their song "The Quiet Things That No One Ever Knows," which fell into heavy rotation on many radio stations during the summer of 2003, while they were on the Vans Warped Tour. The band's videos have also previously been on Fuse TV, MTV, and MTV2. The band is a notable part of the Long Island, New York music scene along with The Movielife, From Autumn to Ashes, Glassjaw and Taking Back Sunday.
