After an aborted attempt at recording a followup to Sweet Oblivion with producer Don Fleming, the band hired producer George Drakoulias to man the controls for what eventually turned out to be their last album. In contrast to the group's previous recordings that were more influenced by psychedelic rock and punk music, Dust contains music that is equally influenced by folk and blues, while still retaining a harder-edged sound. "All I Know" was released as a single from the album and became a success on rock radio. "Dying Days," a song that was also released as a single to some minor success, features Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready.
Kerrang! Magazine selected Dust as the best album of 1996 in their year-end awards. The band toured behind Dust for nearly two years (with former Kyuss and future Queens of the Stone Age leader Josh Homme serving as a touring guitarist), and afterwards went on an extended hiatus. The group eventually disbanded officially in 2000.
