Recorded and self-produced at Newcastle's First Avenue Studio, the band say that Powers is a record that looks “at the balance of power in a personal, political and relational sense”.

Having first emerged at the start of the 2000s amid a swarm of guitar bands, the Sunderland quartet, with their spiky, playful sensibilities, stuck out from the off.

Singer Ross Millard said: “Obviously it’s an absolute privilege to come back and still have fans and that’s something to cherish but I also think we’ve got a bit of a job to do about letting people know that there’s more to this band than you might have thought.”
