The band then signed to California based label; No Sleep Records with the emergence of two new singles - the dark yet massive '17 Years' and the uptempo, rough cut 'Chewing Gum'. To celebrate these singles, Muskets played a handful of headline shows around the UK and then instantly embarked on another run with Tigers Jaw and Culture Abuse.
The word 'CHEW' was teased via a cryptic website 'chewonthehand.com' which turned out to be the title of the band's debut album and first full release through No Sleep Records. Daniel P Carter premiered and announced the album on the BBC Radio 1 Rock Show and the band closely followed up with a music video for their first single since the album announcement for 'You're So Cool'.
In early 2019, the new single 'Violent Paradise' emerged from the band, and later that summer the band released a new EP sharing the same name, again via No Sleep Records.
