3 came to the attention of Universal Records after well-received performances at the Woodstock festival in 1994, eventually getting signed in 1998, but following an unstable relationship with the label through its series of corporate mergers, the band was left with little prospect of releasing their album. Eventually, 3 decided to release it on Planet Noise Records, a small indie label and managed themselves independently. In 2005, they signed with Metal Blade, on whose label they re-released Wake Pig later in the year. Their career has been marked by several line-up changes, most notably Josh Eppard's departure to join Coheed and Cambria, who are now regular touring partners. 3 have toured nationally several times, as well as appearing on radio stations throughout the United States. Joey Eppard also has an active solo career.
