Writing and producing
The Matrix first came to prominence in the early 2000s for their collaborations with pop music artists such as Christina Aguilera, Busted, Myra, Hilary Duff, Avril Lavigne, Jason Mraz, Liz Phair, Ashley Tisdale, Shakira, Britney Spears, Miranda Cosgrove, and Tokio Hotel. They went on to co-write and produce metal band Korn's seventh studio album See You on the Other Side which sold over two million copies worldwide.
The August 1, 2008 issue of Entertainment Weekly reported that in 2004 The Matrix recorded an album with Katy Perry and Adam Longlands as lead singers and shot music videos. However, weeks before the album was set for release, the project was initially cancelled. After seeing the success of Perry's solo career, the band released the album under their Let's Hear It label. Their self-titled album The Matrix was released on iTunes and CD on January 27, 2009 by Let's Hear It.
