After emerging from their Bondi Beach ‘Wonderland’ studio in 2011 where they had been writing and recording their second album, Destination Now, released in May 2011 dropping 3 massive Platinum and Gold hit records in its wake. Co-produced by Australian dance legend and multiple ARIA Award winner, Paul Mac (Itchee & Scrathee and The Dissacociatives) and Shave (4x UK Top 10 and US Top5 productions), the highly anticipated album has been a smash hit on the charts.
Hello was the first smash single from the sophomore album, Destination Now; it was #1 most added track to Australian radio in 2010, shooting up the Aria Top 40 singles chart, and snatching ARIA Gold certification.
The follow up single, Shake It, grabbed the baton and made an equally impressive sprint to the top, with the 3rd single From The Music shooting to #1 ARIA Australian Singles Chart and boasting Most Added Australian track across the board to radio in April 2011. From the Music was the massive smash selling 100,000 singles and dominating the radio across the country.

The 14 sold out shows were an incredible success, propelling the band into the international spotlight and giving their local fans a taste of what was to come with their own national Destination Now tour later in the year.
