It continued to chart for over a year and was still in the Top 40 upon the release of the band’s second album Carnival Of Rust which also hit #1 in 2006. Both albums are now certified Platinum.
The energy of the band continued to build and their third album Revolution Roulette went to #1 and became certified Gold in just a few weeks following its release in 2008.
