The band fared decently at radio, where the single "Bombshell" broke the Top 20 Modern Rock Chart. This, combined with opening spots on tours with The Verve Pipe and the Swedish band Kent (who were then supporting their 1998 masterpiece, Isola, which comes highly recommended) should have been enough to spell success for Papa Vegas. Unfortunately, album sales were low and the band split up in 2000, with frontman Joel Ferguson joining The Verve Pipe as replacement bassist the following year. More recently, members of Papa Vegas have reunited for a new group, Miles to Mars, which picks up right where their former project left off.
