The musicians continued to enter uncharted waters, performing Dubstep productions, with vocals being done by Josh Friend to incorporated Rock variations.
In February 2011, “Feel Good,” their debut single, was released as part of a 3 track EP. The single aired on BBC Radio 1. “Bite The Hand” climbed to number 38 on the UK Singles Chart and number 6 on the Dance Release Chart. “Sunlight,” released under Polydor Records, had 1 million views in the first four days of its debut, aired on Radio 1, and earned the number 16 seat on the UK charts.
Their debut album Evolution Theory was released in 2012. Their latest single “Show Me a Sign” was also dropped in 2012.
