Relentless charted at number 29 on the Billboard Top Heatseekers. Three other albums have charted within the top 10 on the Billboard Top Heatseekers.
The group has had a complicated history of members. Many members of the band were friends of the band who would fill spots temporarily.

Jim Hocking is the only member of the original line-up that remains in the band.
