Shortly before the group served a U.S. tour in 2007 Hensley announced his departure, citing that he needed more time with his family. It was the fourth full-length album, "Float" (2008) that really put them into the spotlight among the mainstream. The album reached the top ten position in the Billboard 200 chart by entering at #4 after selling 48,000 copies in the first week. At the same week, it also reached #1 on the Billboard Independent Charts and #2 on the Billboard Alternative charts. On reaching the new level, King commented, "When we first started, we were ignored by the radio, TV stations. But they are playing our stuff now which is great. We're probably one of the biggest independent acts in the U.S. at the moment, but we've done it the hard way."
