The album was successful enough to warrant PsychopathicRecords founding a rock subsidiary called Ax & Smash Records, intending to seek out other talented rock bands that would appeal to not only Juggalos but rock fans outside of ICP's fan culture. Zug Izland wrote their second album, ''3:33'' entirely on their own, and even had a reasonably budgeted music video for the album's single, "Saved". However, Zug Izland left Ax & Smash, and the sub-label was abandoned.

Syn was perfect for the band, with a vocal style comparable to not only [[Music/PearlJam Eddie Vedder]], [[Music/{{Nirvana}} Kurt Cobain]], [[Music/TheDoors Jim Morrison]] and [[Music/GunsNRoses Axl Rose]], but Violent J himself (except with a ''lot'' more range). With a full-time singer in tow, Zug Izland completed their ''Cracked Tiles'' album, with lyrics by Violent J. The title of the album, in fact, held personal significance to Joe Bruce -- when he was a kid, girls would warn each other not to step on a crack, or they'd have to "kiss the Bruce brothers", essentially dissing Joe and his brother Rob (Jumpsteady).

Now recording independently and without any involvement from ICP, Zug Izland intended to release a third album called ''The Promised Land'' on their own, or on another label, but kind of dropped out of view for a few years. Even underground rock fans and Juggalos didn't know what they were up to. Until 2012, when the band appeared at the Gathering of the Juggalos and announced that not only would ''Cracked Tiles'' be reissued, [[UpdatedReRelease with bonus tracks]], but that Zug Izland had resigned to Psychopathic, and ICP would be writing lyrics for a new Zug Izland album.

Zug [[XtremeKoolLetterz Izland]] is a AlternativeRock band from Detroit, Michigan formed by Violent J from the rap duo Music/InsaneClownPosse and producer Mike Puwal, basically for two reasons:
* Violent J (okay, Joe Bruce) is a long-time rock fan in addition to his love of rap, and when not trying to insert guitar riffs and [[MetalScream Metal Screams]] into ICP songs, he might be found listening to one of his favorite bands, which include Music/PearlJam and Music/MichaelJackson.
* Joe wanted to know how a "{{Juggalo}} Rock" band would sound.

Bruce wrote some lyrics and Puwal located some talented local musicians who were willing to join a Juggalo rock band. After some recording had gone by, Joe and Mike basically realized that Joe should stick to rapping instead of singing. So, the band had to find a new singer: Syn.
