They have played a countless amount of shows with bands including Cilice, Enochian Theory, Tesseract, No Made Sense and Pure Negative. After many many months of shows, the band started work on their Debut EP entitled 'Virtues', which was Self-Released in February 2009, along with a Promotional Music Video of the track 'Resistance', which in all was a huge success, and now the band are to follow up with the new highly anticipated EP, "The Revival", coming Q1 2011.
