The album was followed by three single releases leading up to the launch of a new album, ‘File Under Fiction’, released in May 2011.

On leaving the RSAMD he went onto form multi-award winning band Back of the Moon. The band released three critically albums and toured extensively in the UK, Europe and North America.
