In 2006, Number One Gun decided to move on to different projects despite their growing success. A recently posted MySpace bulletin cleared up the state of the band, stating that Schneeweis has a new band called The North Pole Project, Keene and Mallory formed Surrogate, and Sellers plays bass in Armed for Apocalypse.
However, when Schneeweis approached Tooth and Nail about signing his solo project, The North Pole Project, they wanted him to release the album under Number One Gun. So The North Pole Project became the album name instead. It was released on Tooth and Nail on January 15, 2008.
