The band left Hollywood Records after experiencing creative conflicts with the label during the production of American Nights. The album American Nights, was released by Megaforce Records on March 31, 2015. In 2013, Plain White T’s members Tom Higgenson and Dave Tirio formed a side project called That Lying Bitch to get back to their punk rock roots.
