While waiting to issue an album (which ultimately arrived in 1998), Eve 6 sharpened its act by playing local coffeehouses. "Inside Out," the leadoff single from Eve 6's self-titled debut, became a number one modern rock hit in 1998, ousting the Goo Goo Dolls' "Iris" from the chart-topping position. "Leech" also proved to be a popular single, and Eve 6's record went platinum as a result. Two years later, the band returned with Horrorscope, which went gold on the strength of "Promise" and the power ballad "Here's to the Night," which was also a Top 40/MTV smash. Eve 6 toured the globe throughout 2000 and 2001 while writing songs for a third record, It's All in Your Head, which was released in mid-2003. Despite the moderate success of the single "Think Twice," sales for the record never truly took off, and Eve 6 was dropped by RCA Records in March 2004. Shortly thereafter, the guys announced their decision to disband, and Eve 6 played its final show in July. Siebels went on to play guitar with Monsters Are Waiting, while Collins and Fagenson resurfaced in mid-2006 with their new band, the Sugi Tap.
