The Causey Way was a punk/new wave group formed in 1997 in which the underlying theme was that of a cult operating as a band (with T-shirts coyly stating "The Causey Way Is Not A Cult"). The live shows were energetic and in the style of revivalist evangelism. With releases on Fueled By Ramen and Alternative Tentacles, they broke up in 2001. Several members have since regrouped and started Pilot Scott Tracy, also on Alternative Tentacles.
The Causey Way was the philosophy of Causey, the actual band was referred to as the ACE, (Aural Communications and Entertainment) and a division of the Causey Way as a whole. The ACE was the entertainment on the Causey Compound which was where those that follow the Causey Way resided.
The Causey Way disbanded in 2001, claiming that Causey had been institutionalized and The Truth had converted to Scientology.
