In 2015 Marko Benini left the band and Nicholas McCreadie joined as the new drummer.

Their first studio album, Isochronous was released in September 2008 and distributed by Sony BMG in South Africa. Their second album, Imago was released in May 2010 independently.[2]

Since 2007 the band has toured South Africa extensively, playing at a variety of major music festivals including Oppikoppi[3] and RAMfest in 2010, where they shared the stage with international act Pendulum.[4]
