In May of last year the band parted company with their original drummer allowing them to invite hard-hitting Lewis Gale to fill the slot. Over the past year they have developed a sound retaining their raw punk energy and demonstrating diverse influences, sound musicianship and boredom with the verse-chorus-verse, 4/4 time song tradition. Having spent the past few months getting a brand new set together the group felt it appropriate to recognise the changes in sound and line-up by adopting the new name Fickle Public. A number of new releases are to be expected over the coming year on their own Formal Records imprint - which will also feature releases from a roster other bands/artists that the label are currently putting together.
The band have since supported Alkaline Trio at Glasgow Barrowlands, and toured with Jetplane Landing. They have a track, 'Kittens Got Claws', on a Smalltown America compilation CD.
