Rust Epique, former guitarist for Crazy Town, left the group in 2001 and formed an ensemble called Rustandthesuperheroes. Soon after, they began touring in the Los Angeles area under the name Daisy Town.[2] After cutting some demos and sending them to labels, Rust and the group, now called pre)Thing, signed with V2 Records in 2004. V2 mounted a major promotional campaign for pre)Thing, including preparations for a video game, but on March 9, 2004, one month before the scheduled release of the group's debut album, Rust died of a heart attack.[2] 22nd Century Lifestyle was released on April 6, 2004, and a single from the album, "Faded Love," peaked at No. 38 on the US Billboard Mainstream Rock charts.[3]
