Debut album 'Love It When I Feel Like This' was recorded at Wolverhampton's 'Magic Garden' studio by long term associate of the band Gavin Monaghan. Released on the 4th of June 2007 the album reached Number 3 in the UK charts.

The Twang studio began to work on their second album which would eventually be released in August 2009 and was named after the famous Birmingham district The Jewellery Quarter where the band now resided.

In 2012 The Twang released their third album 10:20. Recorded at the bands own Jewellery Quarter studio by Jon 'Simmo' Simcox' the album included a cover of The Durrutti column's 'Tomorrow'.
