Model Citizen (April 3, 2000) featured the rhythm section of Mark McCullough (bass) and Jonah Dolan (drums), replacing Eisert and Myers. The fourth album, Sirens, appeared on November 16, 2001, and Souvenirs of City Life was released on February 8, 2003. In July 2003, Dolan left the band to be replaced by Mark Stepro.

After the release, guitarist Greg Rahm joined, making the group a quintet. Epp left in October 2005, and John Kengla joined as lead guitarist, while Ed Davis was added as a percussionist.
