The band's debut album, En Attendant Demain was released in 1990. Their lyrics were all in French. They gained considerable popularity in France and Quebec with the release of their third studio album "Engrenages", in 1993.
In 1999, after four full-length albums (plus one live and one best-of) and ten years of touring in America and Europe, the band finally broke up in 1998. Xavier went on to form Corrigan Fest, later joined by Sylvain. They played traditional Celtic music mixed with punk. Later Petermann produced video games and Sylvain taught liter ature at Concordia University. Safwan went on to form Akuma, an angrier, louder bilingual hardcore punk band, and later operated a tattoo studio.
