In 1997, the band decided to end their Rubberneck tour and re-enter the studio to record new tracks for their second album, Feeler. Interscope Records did not approve the finished product, and rejected its 1998 release. The band went back into the studio, salvaging some of the songs recorded during the Feeler sessions, and eventually released their second full-length album Hell Below / Stars Above in the spring of 2001. Come 2010, the band re-recorded 9 songs and finally officially released Feeler on Kirtland Records. .
