There are bands in the pipeline, along with a local West Midlands venue.

You may have seen our new video for 'Dark Awakening' floating around YouTube, Facebook and ReverbNation. We are very happy with how it came out, many thanks to Ben Parry of Two The Beat. It has already had over 1,155 views and it has not even been up a month!
'Dark Awakening' is a promo track to give you a taster of our new heavier and darker direction we are taking on album number two. The song will be featured on our second album, which we hope to start recording summer 2013. We already have well over half the material written for our as of yet untitled second album.
We are doing a couple of shows in 2012 - Manchester 10th November and Stoke 16th December, but we are mainly focusing on writing the material for the second album, and shall spend most of the first half of 2013 rehearsing this.
The storm is coming!
