The band's lineup began to splinter as the '90s progressed, with the majority of Warrant's founding members leaving the group. Under the Influence arrived in 2001; comprising various cover songs and two original tracks, it also marked Jani Lane's last recording with the band. He ultimately left in 2004, taking two of Warrant's members with him, and was replaced by former Black 'N Blue vocalist Jaime St. James. While Lane attempted a solo career, the revised version of Warrant released Born Again in 2006. St. James' tenure with the band proved to be very short, as he was ousted in 2008 in favor of Lane's return. Later that year, Lane left once again and was replaced by Lynch Mob's Rob Mason. In August 2011, Lane was found dead from acute alcohol poisoning at the age of 47 in a Los Angeles hotel room. That same year the band released Rockaholic, the first Warrant studio album to feature Mason behind the mike. That same lineup reconvened for 2017's Louder Harder Faster, which was produced by Jeff Pilson and released via Frontiers. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
