2003 was a year full of joy and excitement for the four guys. Kurt Nilsen joined the Norwegian version of Pop Idol, and won, getting 53% of the votes in the final. As Kurt got busy with the solo career following his win, the band, including Kurt Nilsen, agreed to make Knut Glesnes the head vocalist and to release a cd without Kurt Nilsen. This resulted in the album "Lane of Life", which was released on September 10 2006.
