Their latest single “Empire” had a three month stint in the “Official European Indie Chart” peeking at No.2. They have shared stages with the likes of Echo & The Bunnymen, PWEI, Sigue Sigue Sputnik and A Place To Bury Strangers, they also headlined and sold out, Alan Magee’s Death2Disco at Notting Hill Arts Club.
Their seven singles so far have seen them gaining support from all four corners of the globe as numerous rock and alternative radio shows have taken them to their hearts putting them on heavy rotation. They have been featured on BBC Introducing, and have been studio guests on BBC 6 Music’s Introducing with Tom Robinson.
