Their fourth album "Bruiser" introduced the band to the mainstream, performing on Later with Jools Holland, Late Night with David Letterman, The Jay Leno Show, Last Call with Carson Daily and everything in between.

Olly is currently working on his side project "FURS", co-writing and producing their debut album due for release later this year. With BBC Radio 1 & 2, XFM, 6 Music sessions and plays already under their belt along with UK, Europe and Asian tours the year looks like a busy one for Olly and his Premier Series Elite.
