Their first single, "Come Get Some," reached number seven in 2004, and months later they became the first ever group to broadcast a live concert over the 3G mobile phone network. At the beginning of 2005, the success of second single "Staring at the Sun" (number four) helped their self-titled debut album to reach the Top Three, and after further singles "You're So Right for Me" (number 14) and "Deep and Meaningless" (number 29), the bandmembers started work on their second album. With a much more polished sound, they released comeback single "Home" in 2006, but despite strong radio support, it missed the Top 30 and the release of parent album Circles and Satellites was delayed. A second single, "Good to Be Here," taken from the Stormbreaker soundtrack, was released as a download-only single but failed to reignite interest in the band, and the album's release was shelved indefinitely. Rooster announced their split through their MySpace page in 2007. Since then, Smyth has joined British soft rock band Chinastyle and Atkinson is working on a solo career. ~ Jon O'Brien, Rovi
