In 2011, the band was invited to perform a live soundtrack to a film at a temporary cinema in Hackney, East London. They chose Scorpio Rising, mostly because of its groundbreaking rock n' roll/doo wop soundtrack. The band's subsequent album "Peggy Sue Play the Songs of Scorpio Rising" was released 18 September 2012 via Yep Roc Records and features 12 new arrangements of songs from the 1963 Kenneth Anger cult classic.

Yep Roc Records announced a new full-length album Choir of Echoes to be released in the US 29 January 2014. "Choir of Echoes" was produced at the legendary Rockfield Studio in South Wales by Jimmy Robertson and mixed by longtime collaborator John Askew. Of the record, the band says "Choir of Echoes is an album about singing. About losing your voice and finding it again. Voices keeping each other company and voices competing for space. The call and response of the kindest and the cruelest words. Choruses. Duets. Whispers and shouts.".
