This coincided with a couple of successful singles and a mini album which were all regularly playlisted on national radio and featured in TV shows and publications across the world. More eventful tours of Ireland and Italy followed and the band regularly played raucous live shows around the UK. After US indie label Cranky Girl Records discovered the band, The Fades went out to New York to tour, release some records in the USA and hone their already renowned live set with a whirlwind of gigs, parties and scintillating scotoma. Arriving back in the UK at the end of 2010 the band was completely reinvigorated and inspired to write debut LP proper; ‘Ragnarok’ influenced by some of their big adventures in the Big Apple. "It is arguably the best garage rock album since Songs for the Deaf.
