After the unsuccessful 2006 album and failure to get any widespread recognition, most thought Step Zero to be over. In early 2008, their original website of stepzeromusic.net went down. Three months later in March of 2008, stepzero.ning.com was created, it was stated by the band that they lost their old website due to financial problems.. Months following, new songs were released via MySpace and their own, new website along with possible album covers and potential record deals. The full length album is expected to be released summer or early fall 2008. Martin Harp stated that all of the songs on the album would be never-released, full length songs.
