Already confirmed as Ones to Watch in Rocksound for 2012, they have a forthcoming UK tour with Kerrang and RS favourites Jumping Ships in March and a European tour set for early summer, it's all been strong sailing thus far. With recent hits playlisted on Scuzz TV and NME TV, as well as being added to NME.com, they've been featured on XFM & BBC 6 Music, Canadian & New Zealand radio and have performed a BBC Introducing session.
