Their second release, Standing Still in the USA, was produced by Michael Demming. Living hand to mouth, the band toured the US nearly ten times. They shared the stage with the likes of The Walkmen, The Hives, The Strokes, Jimmy Eat World, Piebald, The Brian Jonestown Massacre, the Explosion, Hot Snakes, Dismemberment Plan, Bratmobile and the Make-up.

In 2003, introduced by Isaac Green of Columbia records, Rossomando met Carl Barat in NYC and agreed to fill in for Doherty in an upcoming US tour for The Libertines; this was followed by a trip to London to play Top of the Pops and Reading and Leeds festival. Eight months later he rejoined The Libertines to help support the entire worldwide touring campaign for their self-titled second album. It was during this time when Rossomando and Barat began to formulate their ideas that would later embody Dirty Pretty Things. During this time, Rossomando moved from a derelict house in Boston to Central London.

In May 2006, Dirty Pretty Things released Waterloo To Anywhere which reached No. 3 in the UK charts, while the first single "Bang Bang You're Dead", peaked at No. 4. The band toured extensively in the UK, US, Europe and Japan.
