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. 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. Their UK 2017 tour was completely sold out. The band has also managed to sell 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, at the time unnamed, 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. With two new singles and no opportunities to play them in front of an audience, they started the ‘Solitude Sessions’, performing quarantined-styled live versions of the songs as well as tracks from their back catalogue.   On 31 July 2020, the band released a stripped back alternate version of "Real Love Song". On 28 August 2020, the band released their third single from the album, “Unperson”. On 14 September 2020, the album's fourth single "Impossible" was released. A live version of "Impossible" at famed Abbey Road Studios was released on 2 October 2020.
