Just over a year on from the release of our debut album, At the End of the Day, we're back in the saddle with our second LP, Radio Silence, due out Thursday 19 May via Brisbane’s Arrest Records. To celebrate we're chucking a huge gig with all our best friends. Last time we launched an album we sold out the Old Bar and broke the bar record.
