"New Horizons" 2015-2017
Marking a new era for the band, armed with new management in LA based Hardline/Regime 72 the album was recorded in legendary Hermosa Beach Los Angeles, home of Black Flag, Descendents and Pennywise, with the later lending some gear to the band for the sessions. Mixed by Cameron Webb (Motorhead, Sum 41, Ignite, Lit, Zebrahead) the album is now considered a landmark in the bands history.
Featuring stand out tracks "Damage Control", "The Blindside", "Fractures", "Skylines" & "One More Enemy"….. See reviews of the album here
The ‘New Horizons’ touring cycle began in the band’s hometown of Birmingham on an amazing bill alongside NOFX, Lagwagon and Alkaline Trio, followed by German Dates with Boysetsfire and Silverstein. A run of Headline shows on the mainland with Fins New Deadline in support followed with a show with 90’s surf legends Reef. Tours in Germany and UK with Zebrahead took them into 2016. A hometown Xmas show topped off the year before embarking on a huge European tour with Epitaph Swedish Stalwarts Millencolin, this included the band’s first ever Spanish shows, also hitting UK, Italy, France, Germany, Austria and Holland on the way.
The band then had a slew of UK runs in April and toured with the stellar line-up of The Offspring and Bad Religion in June on the Punk Rock Summer Nationals Tour which every date was sold out, culminating in a full house of 6,500 at the Eventim Hammersmith Apollo London.
"....an album with melodies that have hit-potential, driving parts and a good production, which makes you want to hear them live."
- METAL HAMMER
“Anthemic wide-screen sound that is meant to be played in arenas.”
- VISIONS MAGAZINE
“Oozes in upbeat and overly catch choruses on each track making it hard to pick out a distinctive favourite.”
- BIG CHEESE MAGAZINE
“Huge Choruses, Saccharine lyrics, emotive vocals and quick tempos slickly produced and chockfull of ear candy."
- POWERPLAY MAGAZINE
"Fast Post-Punk-Songs, somewhere in the middle between Rise Against and Face To Face. Definitely worth checking out!."
- FUZE MAGAZINE
"One of the better British rock releases this year; tuneful enough for the pop-metal crowd, fast-paced enough for the punks and with a refreshing lack of pretension."
