"Welcome 2am" the title of Most Wanted's third CD in six years, is a line in the song "Win". For these road weathered romantic rockers, 2 O' clock in the morning is the time of day when your ears are ringing, your head is pounding, your body is drenched from hours of adrenalin pumping rock sweat and you are exhausted from the grind and yet somebody still wants something from you. You give, and you give until your at the edge of stardom, failure, temptation and excess!

In 2005 the band signed with low profile indie label Stone Alley Records and in February 2006 released Welcome 2am, a twelve-song power packed CD with plenty of guitars and drums for those in the industry needing a fix. A record inspired by many experiences, the songs "Mountains" and "Win" are powerful songs about perseverance while "Contradictions" was written from reflections of 9/11. "Inside My Head" is about sailing through the middle of tempestuous situations with out crashing a shore and in contrast "You'll Come Around" is totally about being cheated on and the feelings of revenge. While "Welcome 2am" is a driving rock recording bursting with feelings of love, hate, sin and redemption, loaded with low-end and rock royalty vibration, it is a composition of vintage guitar riffs and soul fired lyrics.
Prior to their arrival at Stone Alley, Most Wanted recorded two projects at Megawave Records and a DVD. The debut CD titled Most Wanted was recorded and released in 1998. The single "Can I See You", written the day after a close friend of the band announced he had spent several years in prison for an accidental killing prior to his involvement with Most Wanted, made radio play lists from California to New York with positive airplay. Music supervisors in Hollywood retained the sexual taunt Beautiful and the love struggling ballad Bringing Home The Rain for a movie soundtrack library.
The follow up to Most Wanted was released in September 2001 and is titled Tattoo Girls. This CD includes the singles "In My Life", " Crazy Little Woman" and "Tattoo Girls". The CD is tribute to the weekend warriors infiltrating the clubs week after week. With national radio play and regional distribution the song Tattoo Girls became a theme for the new generation of inking and body piercing young women. Andy Patalan of the bands Throttle Body and Sponge, recorded, engineered and mixed MOST WANTED and Tattoo Girls.
