In October, Franky stated on his Twitter account that he and Kushner were jamming with Weezer bassist Scott Shriner and Scars on Broadway bandmate and former System of a Down drummer John Dolmayan.[4] On November 16, another songs, titled The Collapse, was made available to download. On December 1, Franky listed all the songs that had been released for free previously, as well as the codes to download them, including the song Beyond the Wire which was previously only available to US troops serving in the war.

In 2010, Kushner announced that he removed the vocals and "messed around" with the song "Beyond the Wire", giving it the new title of "Beyond the Snake". The song appears at the end credits of the film Hisss,[5] as well as the film soundtrack, featuring vocals and lyrics by Shruti Haasan.[1][6] Four tracks by both Perez and Kushner will also appear in the film Hamill.[5]
