Byrne had previously played bass in blues rock outfit Outbreed, and in early 2009 Wishbone recruited former Outbreed guitarist Niall Feeney on bass guitar, the re-united bandmates reversing the roles they had occupied in their previous band. Drummer Joe Johnston was also added to the line-up in 2009, replacing former drummer Nathan Ogle, who returned to his native Canada, the foursome are currently touring in promotion of their debut album, "Butterfly". BUTTERFLY (DEBUT ALBUM) 2009 Featuring a blend of heavy, guitar-based grooves, and quirky acoustic melodies, embellished by Byrne's bluesy guitar solos, and Hayward's deeply metaphoric and poetic lyrics, "Butterfly" was released April 2009, through Digital Revolution Records. The band are currently touring to promote the albums release, while they also plan to record a follow up EP by the end of 2009. POST-BUTTERFLY - PRESENT: With a full-length album under their belt, and a second release firmly in the making - all within a few months of the bands conception - the band's enthusiasm and commitment shines through.
