How big are they in the States? I'm assuming they never achieved the mainstream commercial success they did in Canada. The fact that their songs were on the radio 24/7 is the reason why so many kids at my junior high loved them.
Pretty damn big--headline 15-20K outdoor ampitheaters...consistently played on alt/hard rock radio, and Lost in You I think even crossed over to some more mainstream/top 40 stations.
Band has some songs that suck, but they're pretty good overall...if hard rock isn't your thing, then its not your thing. But just like Shinedown, Seether, etc...some tracks are really fun and most of the time you get a great live show.
