He was replaced on bass guitar by Andrew Corey Dedman.[1] "Crank the System", which appeared in November 2000, was their first single with Dedman and also their first for the new Shock Records subsidiary label, Pivotal Records.[3] The release included "Bullet for You" as a B-side which was co-written by Richard William "DW" Norton on lead guitar, backing vocals; Roderick "Burger" McLeod on lead vocals; and Fetah Sabawi on synthesisers and samplers.[1][4][5] This version was reworked and issued as the album's second single, "Bullet". It peaked at No. 45 on the ARIA Singles Chart.[6] The album and single were produced by Kalju Tonuma.[4]
