    The band released their first single in the UK on January 30, 2006, a limited edition double A-side 7" single entitled 'Steady As She Goes/Store Bought Bones.' The group's debut album, completed in mid-2005 but delayed to accomodate the White Stripes' touring schedule, is on course for a May 2006 release. « hide
