Aites relocated to NEW YORK and released the greater straightforward recording Moon Kids on Tumult in early 2003. The task dropped into an indefinite hiatus when guitarist Kyp Malone became a member of popular indie rock-band TV on the air, and Aites started shifting concentrate to film use his partner Audrey Ewell, including their co-directed Norwegian metallic documentary Before Light Requires Us. Iran came back in ’09 2009 using what will be the group’s third and last recording, Dissolver, which presented Malone and creation by David Sitek, also of TVOTR.
