In October 2012 they recorded a three-track self-titled demo. All three songs were re-recorded on their debut album My Longest Way Home, which was released worldwide in September 2014 via Redfield Records. The album peaked on No. 28 in the German album charts and lasted there for one week.[1][2] To promote the album the band toured in four cities in Germany: Munich, Bochum, Stuttgart and Berlin.[3]

In January 2014, the band toured with Caliban for three shows and with Sonic Syndicate in September.[4]
