Although they are a relatively new band, formed of professional musicians with plenty of experience in the music industry, there has been plenty of highs for the members individually in terms of touring alongside the likes of YouMeAtSix, The Wodner Years, Skindred, Four Year Stron, Every Time I Die, The Story So Far and many more. They have also had their tracks featured on international TV and on the Tony Hawk’s pro Skater games! Cool or what?!
One major low however, has become the main source of inspiration for their forthcoming debut LP Our Brief Encounters set for release on February 10, 2017. The record could possibly not have been made after frontman Bobby Pook suffered severe third degree burns on his hands trying to save thousands of pounds worth of A/V gear in a house fire at the home he shared with bandmate Simon Morgan. A brave move that nearly cost him his life. However, there was light at the end of the tunnel as his girlfriend’s KickStarter campaign and generosity from family, friends and the companies who’s equipment he used, came together to replace the gear.
