NOTHINGFACE's fourth album, "Skeletons", was released in April 2003 via TVT Records. The group disbanded in February 2004, citing musical differences, internal turmoil and label troubles. NOTHINGFACE reformed a year later with the lineup of Matt Holt, Tom Maxwell, Jerry Montano (bass) and Tommy Sickles (drums) and went on to do a small U.S. club tour before Maxwell and Montano launched the HELLYEAH project with former PANTERA drummer Vinnie Paul Abbott and members of MUDVAYNE.
