Since The release of their début album, the band have embarked on a non-stop journey across the UK, performing in cities and towns from London to Glasgow. Taking their self titled début album on an assault around the country has seen them pick up some major support slots including The Blockheads, Dodgy, XTC, Block Party, Alt-J and Starsailor, as well as hitting the festival circuit, and coming to the attention of Creation Management’s Alan McGee. The album has also been greatly received in America, and had magazine and airplay all over the world.

With the release of the double A side single Things Get Better/I’m Gonna Find Out Someday, the band showcased how they have evolved a heavier sound, but still keeping their distinctive feel found on the first album. The single has already attracted at home and abroad, being featured on BBC Introducing, and being played at Anfield (Liverpool F.C) on match days.
