Their debut full album SPELL IT OUT which came with a live DVD
was well received in the press, here are some quotes.
WITH THEIR HOOK-HEAVY INDIE ROCK SPARKING AWAY. THEY BRING A REFRESHING VITALITY AND RIGOUR TO GUITAR ROCK BY ADDING DASHES OF CHAOS, CATCHINESS AND SEMI-METAL MAYHEM. THIS DEBUT IS A BELTER. 6/10 MARK BEAUMONT @ CLASSIC ROCK
A VERY COOL OPENING SALVO, THAT FOR ONCE JUSTIFIES THE HYPE.
SHANE BALDWIN @ BIG CHEESE
