They were joined by drummer Mario Rubalcaba in 1997, with whom they released the full-length 'Songs About Angels, Evil, and Running Around on Fire'. The same lineup released 'To the Innocent' in 2000, but Rubalcaba and Soares left the quartet and were replaced by Brent Asbury and Kenseth Thibideau, respectively.

In 2018, Rob Crow released a new Thingy full-length entitled 'Morbid Curiosity', as part of his Artist in Residence project with label Joyful Noise.
