Boasting a positive lyrical approach in stark contrast to the cynical mentality predominant throughout the hardcore community of the period, the group earned immediate fame with the release of its self-titled debut EP, issuing the acclaimed full-length Background the following year. After countless lineup changes, the Lifetime roster stabilized prior to the release of their Jade Tree label debut, Hello Bastards, with Katz and Yemin recruiting guitarist Pete Martin, bassist Dave Palaitis, and drummer Scott Golley. The album really cemented the band's status as underground heroes, only to be further solidified with their next effort. After a brief tour in support of 's well-received Jersey's Best Dancers, the influential group dissolved; while Katz, Palaitis and Golley were soon reunited in Zero Zero, Yemin teamed with drummer David Wagenschutz a Lifetime alum from the group's earliest incarnations to form Kid Dynamite, and later, Paint It Black. Lifetime reunited in August to play New Jersey's Hellfest, but when the festival was unexpectedly canceled, the group instead played a few shows around the East Coast, all proceeds going to charity. Several more packed shows followed, including a slot at 's South by Southwest festival, before the band decided to seriously re-form and sign with Decaydance headed by Fall Out Boy's Pete Wentz, who was a huge fan of the band in March That same month, Jade Tree released the double-disc collector's set Somewhere in the Swamps of Jersey, which highlighted the band's earlier and much of it out of print work alongside 52 pages of lyrics, rare photos, and liner notes.
