Controversy in promoting 3rd album
In July 2014 the band received negative attention for a publicity stunt to promote their 3rd album, "The World Is My Enemy Now", where the band reported that frontman Danny Leal was missing. The band later posted the album cover for their yet unreleased 3rd album, which showed Leal tied up in the background, thus revealing the whole angle to be a joke. Since then, the band refused to apologize.
