By "They're shitty" I meant the support bands, not Chimaira.

Even after the Roadrunner years they were still gaining a bit of steam with Resurrection. They were getting big tours like Ozzfest, Sounds of the Underground, Mayhem, and that one tour they did with Disturbed where they were playing arenas. I think the last 2 were on the Infection cycle. And when they were headlining during the Resurrection era they were playing to crowds of about 600-700. Then they had those lineup issues and people seemed to stop caring all at the same time.
