The album peaked at No. 145 and charted for 16 weeks. Alcatrazz, however, could never break out of their small following, and had to cut a tour short due to financial problems. Steve Vai left to join David Lee Roth's (ex-Van Halen) solo band in 1986. The split was on good terms, as it was an offer Vai could not refuse.
