The single is taken from their debut album 'Don't Wait Down', and released through the bands own independent label Lagoon Dog Records, and distributed by RSK Entertainment.
2014 is sure to see the band cement their position as one of the most exciting new live acts. The band have already confirmed Uk dates with Buffalo Summer and very special guests as well as a slot at Download Festival 2014. Tours dates so far are below, with more to be announced.

With lyrics being compared to Bob Dylan, riffs to Rage Against The Machine, vocals to Howling Wolf and beats to Bonham, it's easy to see why the dynamic duo have been stirring up such a frenzy on the London scene amongst music press and fans alike.
Having smashed their way through their pledge campaign this summer, their resulting debut album features 10 tracks recorded at Monnow Valley and Miloco Studios and produced by The Graveltones along with the producer Charlie Francis (REM, The Noisettes, Future Of The Left). The album is released as a deluxe edition on 10th March 2014 featuring new tracks.
2013 was a hugely successful year for the band, having released their eponymous debut EP to rave reviews with Londonist naming #1 in the 'Top London Bands To Watch In 2012'. The band have played an impressive 350 shows across the UK, Europe and Australia, including 4 UK tours with the likes of The Temperance Movement and American rockers Rivals Sons and a performance at this years Download Festival.
They also landed sync deals with the Irish Lottery and cosmetic giants Rimmel who took advantage of their phenomenal studio sound using the bands 1st single 'I Want Your Love' to front their national TV advertising campaign against the face of Kate Moss.
The band's recent nomination for this year's Classic Rock Awards in 'The Best New Band 2013' category is the latest in a long line of achievements that the remarkable pair have already conquered before the world has even heard their full debut album, and sets them firmly amongst some of the year's most incendiary buzz bands including The Temperance Movement, Deep Valley, Walking Papers, Hey! Hello to name a few.
