Recently, the band have also toured with A Perfect Circle across Europe, a UK tour with Marmozets and a special one off show for BBC Radio 1 in Swansea, as a headliner for their Biggest Weekend Fringe Festival/event. These tours add to an already impressive touring history that includes dates and tours in UK and Europe with the likes of Mastodon, Architects, A System Of A Down, Prophets Of Rage, Dillinger Escape Plan, Bury Tomorrow, Lonely The Brave and Arcane Roots. Last summer, the band also played a host of UK and European festivals including ArcTanGent (August) and Reading and Leeds (August), a 2nd stage headlining slot at the 2000trees Festival (July) and Fat Lip Festival (August).

The bands 2nd album ‘All That Divides’ was released in late 2018 and garnered rave reviews across the board, including NME (5/5)Upset Magazine (5/5 and of whom put the band on the cover for their September issue), Kerrang! (4/5), Dork (5/5), Metal Hammer (8/10), Planet Rock Magazine (4/5), Rhythm (4/5), Discovered Magazine (10/10), The Skinny (4/5) and New Noise (US – 5/5), with The Independent stating “..their sublime second album All That Divides, which is massive in every sense of the word. Bringing in Adrian Bushby (Foo Fighters, Muse) was a master-stroke – his production plays a big part in how the album offers up vast sonic landscape that takes you on an intense, emotional journey via album highlight “Aether”, across “Slow Seas”, and closing on “Fate I & II”. This feels like a real achievement.”
