Its been a while since we last posted, but we’ve been mega busy.
The release of Run From Sirens went incredibly well, (still available on iTunes) and the gigs have been great.
Whilst promoting the single we’ve been doing more acoustic shows, and we thought, ‘why not get some of these versions on record’. So we did.
We’re just finalising the mixes and artwork and it’ll be with you all soon.
There are loads of gigs in the pipeline too so keep checking our gigs page and facebook for all the info.

Its been a busy couple of months for us.
After our incredible album launch party we went on tour and had a great couple of weeks, culminating in playing to a packed Pavilion Theatre in Brighton.
We were then asked to play the Camden Crawl. We have been fans of the Crawl for years and it was an honour to be asked to perform at the 3-day new-music festival.
In the upcoming weeks we’re heading back to the studio to record an acoustic EP and then you’ll be able to catch us at some shows over the summer including a few festivals too. (Details to be updated on our gigs page, when full line-ups have been announced).
In the meantime we hope to see you at our next Brighton show on the 31st May at The Hydrant.
