The band made seven studio albums before disbanding in 2005. After a ten-year break, they reunited and toured in 2015, and in 2017 released a new LP — A Sentimental Education and an EP of instrumentals — A Place of Greater Safety. The band retains the same lineup that operated from 1999 to 2005: Dean Wareham on vocals/guitar, Britta Phillips on bass, Sean Eden on guitar, and Lee Wall on drums.
