They subsequently released three more albums: Champ in 2010, Forcefield in 2014, and TPC in 2018.

Josh Hook reflected on the journey, saying, “We’ve been incredibly lucky and honored to share our music and to experience so many personal moments with our fans, from graduations and birthdays to onstage proposals. Seeing familiar faces from our early tours and connecting with so many over nearly two decades is a true privilege. This final tour is the ultimate retirement celebration we could have hoped for. We’re profoundly grateful for everyone who has joined us on this incredible journey.”
