In 1994 they scored their biggest hit to date with the album "Four," which went platinum and spawned the smash-hit single "Run-Around." In 2012, the band released "25," a two-disc set featuring greatest hits and unreleased demos to celebrate the group's 25th anniversary. It was followed by 2012's "Suzie Cracks the Whip," the group's 11th studio album.
