* DevelopmentHell: Apparently averted with ''Autotheism''; its conception wasn't particularly difficult or arduous, just long. The heavy touring probably caused most of the delay. The fourth album seems like a more legitimate case, as a complete lineup shift and an inability to maintain a new one ([=McKinney=] being the only explicit full-timer; Kersey was a live session member, Westmoreland and Sorceron wound up becoming [[AscendedExtra AscendedExtras]], and Rydquist and Griffin were supposed to at least join for the recording but could not make it work) has led to a development cycle that has exceeded even ''Autotheism'' in sheer length.

As of February 2015, Justin [=McKinney=] of The Zenith Passage has been announced as a new guitarist. Replacements for Ficco, Brewer, and Rudinger have still not been announced, though an Instagram photo posted by [=McKinney=] confirmed that Julian Kersey (Aegaeon) and [[Music/HateEternal Chason Westmoreland]] are on the roster. Due to Westmoreland's other commitments, it's unknown if this is the final lineup or just a temporary one. As of April 2015, Brandon Griffin has officially returned as a full-time bassist. Derek Rydquist has also returned on at least a studio basis; the final drum slot has yet to be announced, though Anthony Barone (Aegaeon) is their current touring drummer.

As one could guess, more touring occurred, and another lineup change occurred in 2012 when Jones departed and Wes Hauch took his place. The new album was still slowly creeping along, and come August of that year, it had finally dropped. The reaction to ''Autotheism'' was [[BaseBreaker mixed]]. Some praised it for expanding on the progressive elements of ''Planetary Duality'', while others decried it as pretentious, derivative nonsense that ripped off a ton of bands rather than doing anything new. It still sold very well, however, debuting at #50 on the Billboard 200 and resulting in a whole lot more touring. 2013 brought nothing out of the ordinary with it, which is to say more touring and a lineup change. Cooper was the one who left this time, though the fans weren't too upset about the introduction of young hotshot Alex Rudinger in his place. The rest of the year was uneventful, and 2014 proved to be more of the same with the exception of Hauch departing to join a reforming Glass Casket until late October, when Brewer and Rudinger abruptly quit for reasons not entirely known, and the trend continued with Ficco's departure in December 2014. Keene has yet to make a statement on the band's future.

Added DiffLines:

* BerserkButton: Keene gets extremely angry if people insult his veganism. He has even apparently [[TalkToTheFist violently attacked]] people who have been particularly rude or obnoxious about it at various points.
