about

After 2014's "This Fire" we took a step back from writing new material to enjoy gigging our back catalog along with a healthy dose of covers. "I Shouldn't Be With You" had already become a firm entry in any live set despite never being recorded. We planned on heading into the studio again in late 2015, but due to multiple set backs recording was postponed.

In early 2016 we started writing again, with an aim to capture the raucous energy from our live sets. In June 2016 "Only Lovers" and "Thinking Of You" received their live debut, closely followed by "Wrong Things" and "Lose It" a few weeks later.

In October 2016 we headed into Yak Music Studios helmed by Joseph Buckler, with a plan to record the 5 songs that are on this release in a way which most closely captured our live energy, but without sacrificing the conveniences a modern studio offers.

Joseph did a fantastic job of accommodating our desire to lay down the majority of the tracks as live as possible, despite the technical difficulties this presented. The drums and bass are 100% live, as are the basis for the guitar tracks. "Demons" took two days to record, and was then mixed and mastered patiently by Joseph over the following weeks.

"Demons" is without a doubt the EP we set out to record, and is one we are immensely proud of as a band.
