This lead to the eventual re-release of the EP in the autumn of 2010 under the wing of The Epiphysis Foundation. 2011 found Sam Goodwill anew as a 2 piece. Sam, along with partner Dennis Thomas, took novels of accumulated material into a large warehouse turned make-shift recording studio to conclude the awaited opus that began with "Stampede." The conceptual full length entitled "History" was released on vinyl in April of 2012. In 2013/14 Sam tours with a 3 piece band, including Richard Elmsworth (Gil Mantera Party Dream) and Bob Young (Public Radio, Signature Event). He also tours solo with a stripped down / loop based repertoire. When Sam is not on the road or writing music he's producing records in his warehouse project studio.
