Life On Display was recorded in Los Angeles, with production duties shared between John Kurzweg, Michael “Elvis” Baskette and the band themselves. The new album’s premiere single “Away From Me” went for adds at Modern Rock, Active Rock and Rock radio on October 14th. It was the number 1 most added song at all formats and is currently in the top 5 at Modern Rock and Top 10 on the Active Rock charts.

Come Clean spawned no less than four #1 alternative and rock radio hit singles (“Blurry,” “She Hates Me,” “Control” and “Drift And Die”), with “Blurry” becoming the most played track on Modern Rock Radio for 2002 and scooping the ASCAP award for most played song of the year.
