The band four EPs and two albums, Commuters (2013 ) and Millennials (2018 ). They record their music live and uncut, generally written and recorded on the spot wherever they were at the moment. More recently they recorded and mixed tracks at a secluded house in the German countryside without any computer involved.
Also on the bill are Irish heavy metal/hardcore quartet Bailer, who released their, new, eponymous EP, in February. They have won acclaim in Metal Hammer, Kerrang!, Metal Injection, and That's Not Metal. They also toured Russia earlier this year.
