Their most recent national tour, ended at the Glass House in Pomona, California on May 24th, 2014 where they performed several of their hits, especially the radio famous 'When Worlds Collide,' which was originally released 15 years ago. Additionally, singer and the only original member remaining, Spider One, seemed enthusiastic every time he announced a new track that he was about to perform which was very well received by the fans at the shows.

The new additions to the PM5K team, are all known on stage with nicknames, X51, Zer0, scissors, and Dj Rattan, are also huge users of social media between their Facebook and Instagram pages, have been very enthusiastic about being a part of the crew, and have been frequently posting fun group as well as some individual photos between all the cities they have been stopping in to so far.
