Relentless writing and gigging, they have released their EP titled 'Within' and 'The Age Of Violence' album in 2008.
At the end of 2008 a line up change occured due to injury and family commitments which saw Sean & Dave leave the fold. Nik and Matt were welcomed in and have ben long time friends of the band. Nik's hard hitting drumming and Matt's amazing bass ability has crafted a new way for the band.
