In 2003, they boys broke up and pursued different careers some embarking on a solo career. Although they did release two albums and a performed a “Never Gone Tour” in the mid 2000’s they did not receive the same fame until they officially got back together with the original cast in 2012. That year they set out on their 20th Anniversary tour and released their first independent album, In a World Like This.
