The band went on to tour the UK extensively over the course of 2009, using these shows to test out new material that they would go on to record in April/May 2010 with Ant West from Futures. A single entitled "The Joke and the Damage Done", taken from this session, was released via a 100 copy limited edition screen print thanks to Pandy Cane Clothing on 01/06/10, accompanied by a tour which saw the band play their first Scottish dates.
