When asked what they have been up to recently, Chris said: "We've been writing and rehearsing ever since we formed about a year ago, and started gigging properly last summer.

Chris said: "We're just getting ourselves ready for a UK tour which kicks off in Beaconsfield on February 3, and then once we've recovered from that we'll probably be heading back into the studio to record an album.

We're also planning to release a download-only single after Easter - we have a producer in New York who really wants to do us a video for it so that'll be an awesome experience."

The bass player said that music lovers can expect: "A passionate, cathartic and emotive show. The shows are honest, we just want to make music that's not contrived in any way and hopefully we'll be able to make a connection with people."

Highlights include supporting Enter Shikari on Christmas Eve at Club 85, playing with respected artists and getting signed.

"It's a good feeling knowing that someone believes in your music enough to want to sign you."

Chris said his hopes for the future are: "To be able to play to more and more people and to keep having as much fun as we are now."
