The album Systems of Romance September 1978 release was book-ended by two singles, “Slow Motion” in August and “Quiet Men” in October. Like Ultravox’s previous albums, Systems of Romance received mixed reviews at the time and failed to chart. The band was dropped by their label Island Records just prior to a 1979 tour of the US. During the tour Foxx, tired of rows with other members, and of being in a group, announced his intention to leave Ultravox when he returned to England. Guitarist Robin Simon also left, electing to stay in New York City. Chris Cross, Billy Currie and Warren Cann worked on other projects while recruiting a new lead singer/guitarist (Midge Ure). This line-up of Ultravox played their final concert together in Los Angeles in March 1979.
