After they recorded what would be their final album, ''Old Ramon'', they were dropped off of Island Records and the album was shelved for 4 years. In 2001, it was finally released, but the band had broken up from the stressful conditions of the TroubledProduction. So Mark got two of his old collaborators back together with him with a slew of session musicians. The sound of the Red House Painters had changed so drastically that Mark decided to rename the project to Sun Kil Moon.

Their first album ''Ghosts of the Great Highway'' was released in 2003 to great critical acclaim and record sales for any {{Slowcore}} act and for any Mark Kozelek-related project. The next album, a Music/ModestMouse cover album, ''Tiny Cities'' was released to mostly positive reviews in 2005. It was in 2008 that the act got a great deal of critical reception when they released ''April'', a sprawling, folk influenced album. Kozelek followed it up in 2010 with ''Admiral Fall Promises'', on which he was the sole musician. Although the album was met with generally positive reviews, some fans were disappointed in the fact that Kozelek eschewed the layered arrangements that were present on his previous work.
