After a year of endless touring the band returned to the studio at the start of 2019, with the determined belief that they had to raise the bar once again with album two, and, boy have they delivered. The Truth Ain’t What It Used To Be is an album for our times. Defying genres whilst echoing some of the greatest eras of musical history, it has picked up universally glowing reviews and taken the band to a whole new level.
The album was preceded by a short film, cut into four video chunks, depicting a society where the clowns have taken over, and featuring four initial tracks from the record. This is an album that pulls no punches, that tells it how it is in 2019, but also features some of the greatest songwriting this generation has heard. Touring has stepped up as well, with the band taking in the UK and Europe with Black Star Riders in Autumn 2019 and heading out across those territories again in early 2020 with Steel Panther. Major slots at Download and Graspop festivals are on the horizon too, along with a headline tour where the full carnival show will take to the stage.
