We are back with new music, and feeling stronger than ever. After releasing missing peace, in Sept 2017, we have completed 3 UK tours including festival slots at Beat herder, Edinburgh fringe, Lindisfarne, Doune the rabbit hole and the BBC introducing stage at Highest Point.

One of the highlights of this summer was our New single Strong being chosen as part of the teakwando world championships closing ceremony, where we got to play Strong & Carnival live at the Manchester Arena in front of an audience of thousands.

Luckily we managed to get the whole day filmed and have created the video for strong from footage of that inspirational day. Including world champion athletes rising to the pinnacle of their sport and our beaming faces as we play such an iconic venue in our home town, check out the video live now and be inspired... Keep on keeping strong

They were mint.

Got a bird.

She was a psycho.

Left The Joint

Got depressed.

Spent 2 years on my mums couch tanning bare drink and drugs to mask the emptiness.

Quit music completely

Felt worse.

Took more drugs.

Met a bird who was not a psycho.

Joined a band called

The Gas Panic.

Got sacked.

Joined The Moods again.

Made a sick album.

Now I just generally whinge about stuff.

Easily excited

Just as easily grumpy.
