Just four years later, they released the EP of the same name, which was well received by critics. In 1986, the bass guitar by Leslie Langston was taken, which was represented in 1990 by Fred Abong. The band was taken by the British record label 4AD under contract. 1992 changed the composition of the band, as Donelly got out (see also: Belly ) and Langston was oriented in a different direction. Hersh had become a mother of two and let the activities in the band for a long time to rest. 1995 returned the Muses to Georges back on bass. Since 1997, Hersh is a solo artist, essentially.

In October 2013, the band released a ninth album entitled "Purgatory / Paradise " in the form of a book with accompanying CD.
