Background

2016–2020: Broken Machine and What Did You Think When You Made Me This Way?

A small tour of UK clubs took place in late May 2017, to support "Amsterdam," the first single from their second album Broken Machine, released on 8 September 2017. Later on 14 August, the second single, "Sorry", became their first single to chart on the UK Singles Chart, reaching No.89. On 5 August 2017 they played to a crowd of over 500,000 people at Woodstock Festival Poland. On 23 August 2017 they supported Muse and Biffy Clyro at Vital Festival in Belfast ahead of their sold out "Broken Machine" tour. The band also sold out two consecutive nights at the Roundhouse in London.

Sarah Taylor said on Varsity "In general, this album pushes more boundaries than the last one. The band carved a name for themselves with their debut, but here it feels like they’re trying to define themselves to a further extent; there’s more variety in the music and lyricism, and more politics, too. Joe Langridge-Brown, guitarist and lyricist alongside Mason, said that “all the songs on the album are things that we’ve gone through or spoken about: Trump, religion, bigotry...” and ‘Live Like Animals’ is an anthem for the disillusioned youth. It features lyrics such as “We put our lives all up for sale / We get our truth in the daily mail” and “We’re gonna make ’em build a wall / We’re gonna live like animals”. Other tracks, such as ‘Broken Machine’ itself, and the deluxe version’s ‘Number 13’ are more experimental rhythmically: they’re the type of songs you have to listen to a few times before you decide whether you like them or not. I did, and I do.".

On 24 August 2018, the band debuted a new song live entitled "Forever and Ever More" at Reading Festival, which was released as the lead off single from their new EP, "What Did You Think When You Made Me This Way?" a few days later. The EP was released on 19 October 2018 alongside the second single "Take This Lonely Heart", on the same day.

2020–present: Moral Panic

On 18 March 2020, the first single of their third studio album was released, named "Is Everybody Going Crazy?". On 23 June 2020, the band announced that their third album, titled Moral Panic would be released on 23 October 2020, alongside the release of the second single from the album, "Real Love Song", on the same day.  Three more singles followed; "Unperson", "Impossible" and "Phobia". On 14 September 2020, dates for a UK and Ireland arena tour were announced, beginning in September 2021. The album was released on 23 October 2020, receiving generally favourable reviews. It reached No. 3 on the UK Albums Chart.

Despite not being able to play gigs, a new single, called "Futureproof" was released on 8 June 2021. It was the first single off a new EP, titled Moral Panic II, which was will be released on 28 July 2021 and was announced on 9 July 2021, along with second single "Miracle, Baby”. Speaking of the EP, the band said they "didn’t feel like we were done with the Moral Panic theme", and the release aims to "explore some avenues we felt the album may have missed".
