 +After the band released their album //Monstor// on [[R.E.X. Music]] they had plans to record and release a second album for R.E.X. However, they received a letter two weeks before they began working on the album that they had been dropped by the label. Apparently, their music was too dark for the label. They were courted by other labels like [[Narrowpath Records]] and [[Blonde Vinyl Records]], but those deals did not work out. They still played some live, but decided to break up to get out of a contract, as well as disillusionment with the music industry.
 +
 +A few years later, [[Scott Roman]] started jamming with original NLM drummer Dave Blomgren. They brought in bassist David Manzo of [[Poor Kids Without Cable]] and formed a band called [[120db]]. Eventually, [[120db]] evolved into No Laughing Matter. [[Ted Worthless]] remained friends with the band, but did not join back in the band at that time. John Starkey of [[Skinflowers]] Became the guitarist of NLM at some point.

 +For the last NLM release, [[Ted Worthless]] was back in the band, but Mike Hustad joined on Bass while David Baker joined on drums.
