Well the day is finally here, and we're very proud to say that our new album is finally out!

It's been an amazing few months in the build up to this, the European tour was just off the hook, We got to see so many beautiful countries and was left totally dumbfounded by the amount of people that came out to see us on the tour.

2015 is gonna be a busy year for us and we can't wait to get back out there and play more tracks from the album.

But for now enjoy the album and keep your eyes peeled for some videos coming soon

Quotes -

They embody the 2 tone sound of the Specials and the punkiness of Rancid. I know it’s early, but this EP is one of my favorites of 2013! - Read Junk

It’s packed with lively upbeat tracks that prove Ska is not only alive and well but also, fresh and relevant. - MRU

(modern sub) 60s keys, slicing guitar, rolling bass line and snapping tight drumming, a cool and clear vocal - Studs and Punks

When it comes to ska, there's no more seminal figure than The Specials singer Neville Staple. He guests on his friend Pat's band The Talks ' new single which melds trad ska with reggae and punk influences, with a socio-political lyrical approach. Can Stand the rain is a belter from hull's finest - Big Cheese Magazine

The Talks rock a blend of old school Jamaica ska infused with Two-Tone sensibilities and a refreshing lack of 3rd wave spaz. - SKa4U

A few of these rude boys, really look like boys but with the song's stuttering chorus, walking bass and propulsive horn line, easily erase any doubts about their maturity - Music Ruined my Life

Much love to all who have backed up, See you in the pit!!! x
