Paralleling the moves of like-minded rock acts such as King Tuff
and Doug Tuttle
away from the garage, the band headed further into fuller-fleshed, studio grade territory in 2018. That year saw an expansion of their live lineup with the release of the single "Christa
", and the announcement of their second LP, "Shadow By Your Side", mixed by Kevin McMahon (Swans, Real Estate), which gives up some of the band's loose jangle, casting a darker psych-rock backdrop for the band’s brand of upbeat skepticism.
