With several gigs out the way, the band went into the studio and recorded their demo recording "Your Children Are Not Special", named after a famous Bill Hicks routine. After a couple of years gigging and song writing founding members Charlie Hill, Andy Glynn and Dunstan Blay decided to move onto other things leaving Gretanova as a 2 piece. Luckily new guitarist Matt Churchard was found very shortly after and with Lee switching to Bass allowed the band to continue writing as a 3 piece. After a few months of auditions Gretanova evolved into a 5 piece band. With vocalist Ben Moorhouse bringing with him much need synth and guitarist Mark Vincent adding power and structure, the band continued to gig with a much harsher metallier edge than previous lineups. A new EP "100th Idiot" (2010 Corporate Records) was recorded over two days at the end of May at Cellar Door Recordings in Rotherham. After completing a small tour in October 2010 and another in January/February 2011 the band parted ways with guitarist Matt and moved away from the heavier sound of 100th Idiot ,replacing it with a more alternative melodic sound. With Ben picking up rhythm guitar duties for some songs the band commenced writing a new set of songs and quickly jumped back into the studio recording a new 5 track E.P at The Lock Up Studios outside Sheffield.
With InterNegative (2012) recorded the band are now back on the gigging scene and are stronger than ever!
