A collection of singles and B-sides entitled Here To Save Your Soul was released on 5 October 2009. The band have since recorded their second album, Burning Your House Down, which was produced by Jim Sclavunos of Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds and Grinderman.
This second album is scheduled for release on 6 September 2010 and will be released through Punk Rock Blues Records / PIAS Recordings. High Horse will be the first single and will be released in advance on 23 August 2010.
On September 2, 2010, the band previewed Burning Your House Down at London nightclub Madame Jojo’s in front of a sold-out audience, which included Oasis singer Liam Gallagher as well as members of Grinderman and Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds.
