After releasing "2000 Fold" and "Megadef", they worked on another new album in 2005 titled "Rocket Surgery" (later changed to "Reseda Beach"). In 2007, they ended up releasing a "Razor Tag" mixtape after working with Green Lantern (remember him from Fort Minor's "We Major" mixtape?) and had some good stuff on there, including 'Second To None' and 'Hey You', which featured Mike on vocals. 'Second To None' was performed live a few times in 2007 since SOB joined Projekt Revolution that year, and Mike even threw a verse from it over 'Points Of Authority' in 2007. The song was rumored to be on "Reseda Beach" but ended up being released on the "Razor Tag" mixtape and was featured on the almighty Transformers Soundtrack.
Our interview with Ryu from 2009 revealed why the band was put on hold and why the members did their own things, with Ryu saying "The Warner thing (referencing their split from Machine Shop Records) I think mentally exhausted everybody, I think it was just time to do something fresh and new. Business wise and creatively. The status of the group is unknown at this point. It just felt like we were beating a dead horse after a while."
Ryu in an April 2009 online video chat played a few tracks from the album, but otherwise nothing has been said about it ever coming out. However, today he posted on Twitter that the album is indeed coming shortly. It should be here within two months and will be on Celph Titled's "Dirty Version" record label.
Known song titles include 'Here We Go' (feat. Celph Titled), 'Call My Name', 'The Pirate Song', 'Damn' (feat. Micheal Buble & Holly Brook), 'Dumb It Down', and 'Dunky Fividenz' (feat. Apathy)'. It remains to be seen what the final tracklisting will be, but we assume most of these tracks (and maybe 'Second To None') will appear on the release. One song, called 'Don't Feel Bad' (feat. RZA) was rumored as well but was recently confirmed to not be on the album.
So for all of you Styles Of Beyond fans out there, get ready! Who's excited for this one to finally come out?
