After that everything went quiet. Carl Nilsson moved forward with Lucifer´s Aid and released a number of very hard electronic albums. Carolina Lindahl re-appeared in 2020 with the new project The Brides of the Black Room. Andreas Jismark, who stayed in the shadows 2014-2016 but still was a part of the band, has since managed and worked with acts like Rein and The Lovers of Valdaro.
In late 2018 The Operating Tracks were special guests to Nitzer Ebb in their first show in Stockholm to which they invited some special guests. That would have been the end of it. But as things turned out the band reconnected in 2021 due to a question from Progress Productions if it would be interesting to release “Testify” and “Daniel” as a 12” vinyl. As the parts of The Operating Tracks began to look at this possible release it seemed more interesting to work with some other old songs as well.
“1000 Ways to Die” and “1001” were two songs that the band recorded in early versions and played at the first live shows (with Youth Code in Stockholm) back in 2014. With two brand new versions of these the 12” turned into an EP.
