In the band’s turbulent and unpredictable history, band members have regularly been replaced, with the only constant member being the band’s founder Ginger (birth name David Walls) - the singer, guitarist, and predominant songwriter. Several band members have appeared in the line-up more than once. A 2018 anniversary tour by the band’s 1993 lineup led to a return to the studio. In February 2019 the band released the new single “Dislocated”, and their first new album in ten years, Renaissance Men, is scheduled for release in May 2019.
