Levi returned with 2003’s The Mass — whose title track referenced Carl Orff’s masterpiece O Fortuna - and subsequently sales hit platinum status is France and Switzerland. The Very Best of Era was released in 2008 and featured all their popular tracks from their last three records as well as remixes. Eric returned in 2008 after a four year hiatus and released an album a year - 2008’s Reborn, 2009’s Classics and The Essential and Classics Vol. 02 in 2010.
