Formed in 2005, the band have to date released 2 albums & an EP and have toured extensively supporting acts such as The Beat. The Slackers, Reel Big Fish & Bedouin Soundclash.
New single Out My Mind is released on Bomber Music on 27th May and the tour is expected to sell out across the UK.

Support comes from Gecko. Based in South East London but with strong ties to the South West, Gecko have been producing high-quality, cheerful, acoustic reggae since forming in 2006 and promise to be the perfect opening to an evening of top-rank music at the Phoenix.
