The Fire Still Burns, which featured members of Lifetime, Bigwig, Nora and Ensign, has called it a day. The band explained:
It has been a long, fun, and awesome run, and we had a great time over the years. unfortunately, as sometimes happens when people lead busy lives, time becomes an issue and we can no longer make the band happen the way it should. there is no bad blood, there is no "drama", and there are no hard feelings. the plain truth is that we are 5 guys going in 5 directions- and each one doing a million different bands and projects and things in their personal lives that make it impossible for us to continue to be a band anymore. it's all good. we will live on.

The band released Keeping Hope Alive in 2005.
