The Long Island, N.Y., band's most recent CD is last year's "The Devil and God Are Raging Inside Me," which showcased the sardonic pop-punk rockers taking a more emotionally tormented and introspective musical route. Honolulu Advertiser entertainment writer Derek Paiva ranked the disc No. 7 on his year-end list of the 10 best albums of 2006 calling it "an urgent blast of alternately reverent and blasphemous soul-searching (with) passion-filled lyricism and exhilarating sonic experimentation."
