As the '90s came to a close, Canadian-American neo-prog hard rock outfit Big Wreck climbed the charts with their first single "The Oaf," a post-grunge anthem that became their biggest radio hit. Found on their multi-platinum debut, In Loving Memory Of..., the track was followed by subsequent singles that fared well in Canada. Their sophomore follow-up, 2001's The Pleasure and the Greed, hit the Top 10 in their home country, but failed to gain traction on the singles charts or in the U.S. Soon after, Big Wreck split up. Nearly a decade later, with various side projects and adult careers under their belts, the band was re-formed by founder Ian Thornley and guitarist Brian Doherty, issuing comeback effort Albatross in 2012. A Top Five Canadian hit, it was followed by the equally well-received Ghosts (2014) and Grace Street (2017). By the close of the decade, they'd issued their sixth album, ...but for the sun.
