Back in 2005, with an averageage of just 16, Billy, Charlotte and Josh crashed onto the international musicscene with their, now cult, debut album ‘YOUNG FOR ETERNITY’ androck-club floor filler ‘ROCK & ROLL QUEEN’. The sophomore album,‘ALL OR NOTHING’ (2008), was recorded in LA with producerButch Vig and is a sonically enormous, harder hitting album. Thetracks written at a time when Charlotte and Billy were midst a breakupof their personal relationship and Billy was battling to savehis voice by undergoing surgery to remove nodules from his vocalchords. ‘MONEY AND CELEBRITY’ followed in 2011 withthe band working with producer Stephen Street on an insanely catchyrecord. The band credit the celebrity circus & reckless financial cultureas the drive behind tracks such as lead single ‘WE DON’T NEED MONEYTO HAVE A GOOD TIME’.
