After a few years of turmoil, Canadian rock band Jet Set Satellite is heading back out on the road.

But as the years went on, relationships began to strain. According to Jet Set's official website, in the years between albums "the band dissolved their relationship with their former label after they tried to make them into something they were not. They went underground, things got ugly, members were fired, the band nearly broke up."

But JSS, now a new five-piece with Tuminski, Mike Keller (lead guitar), Jay Rink (bass) and Dave 'Bulldog' Swiecicki on keys and guitar, and Rich Reid on drums, and put together its sophomore album, Vegas, in October 2005.
