The first two singles from the album, "Toxic" and "Darkside", were released with minimal success. Turntablist DJ AM left at this point.

Darkhorse (2001–2003)

The album achieved little commercial success, spawning only two singles: "Hurt You So Bad" and "Drowning". Shortly after the release of Darkhorse, the band broke up in 2003.

Ink 19 :: Crazy Town (721 words)
Crazy Town, a seven man band out of LA, is upon us, and they're kicking ass and taking names.
I met Epic while I was already performing around town, and we decided to make a group together, because we both had what the other one didn't have.
