Lead singer Mike Williams was arrested in 2005, following the aftermath of hurricane Katrina, but with the help of supporters was released in December of that same year.
On August 23, 2013 the band’s drummer Joey LaCaze died from respiratory failure, aged 42. Brian Patton quit in late 2017 to be with his family making the band a 4 piece for the 1st time in their career.
