The last year has seen the London foursome go from strength to strength, gaining support and spins on XFM's The Rock Show to featuring in Kerrang!, Scuzz TV and many plays on BBC Introducing. Their own unique blend of Alt-Rock, ambient sounds and towering riffs, all delivered at full tilt with a pounding rhythm section have earned the band a fearsome live reputation and burgeoning and loyal fanbase. Now with producer Lee Batiuk (Deaf Havana) on board, and the release of two exciting singles 'Haze' and 'Blind Love', a new explosive offering 'Trial & Triumph' is planned for release on Nov 13th. With a successful PledgeMusic Pre-Order Campaign underway and national tours to support, progress shows now signs of slowing down for the band and are all set for a busy and exciting 2015.
