A more mature effort, The Comfort of Home, was released in July 2005. By the following autumn, the guys had joined forces with MxPx and Relient K on a national tour. Berry amicably parted ways with the band in early 2006, though, with Jimenez following closely behind. Rufio added new members to the lineup and hit the road for a string of springtime shows, but the loss of two founding members proved to be a difficult hurdle. The next year, Rufio officially called it quits, playing their last American shows in June 2007 and capping things off with a short South American tour.
The breakup didn't last long, though. Rufio gave a few scattered performances throughout 2008 and officially re-formed in 2009, with newcomers Taylor Albaugh and Terry Stirling, Jr. rounding out the lineup. After releasing an EP, The Loneliest, in December, the group returned the following year with Anybody Out There. ~ Greg Prato, Rovi
