Instead, the band has done that five times over, with more than 2000 donors giving more than $65 apiece. At least five people gave more than $1500 each, The band has posted a "thank you" video and a summer practice session. .

The band's last release was The End is Near in 2003, before splitting up. They also released The Rise and Fall of Five Iron Frenzy DVD on Asian Man Records.
