Song notes[edit]

  • "Marked with the Knowledge" was featured in Sony HD television commercials starting late April 2008.[2][3]
  • Their song "This Shameless Moment" was used at the end of episode 3 of Joe Calzaghe vs. Roy Jones, Jr. 24/7 program on HBO. The song is played while you see Roy Jones talking about being a true champion and shadowboxing on a New York rooftop and you see Joe running on the Brooklyn Bridge and talking about how it is his time and that Roy Jones was yesterday and he is today.
