The act is currently working on a second EP 'The Shackle' to compliment 'The Shadow' EP which will be released as a double-EP release later this year. The band raised $10,000 in 40 days through an Indiegogo crowd-funding campaign in a great display of fan support.
TDS popped up at multiple festivals in last next few months including Mojo Burning, The Big Pineapple Music Festival and The Echuca Winter Blues Festival whilst preparing to hit the road in October - December in support of full EP release. The late 2016 tour will include Festival appearances at the Airlie Beach Music Festival, Hobbstock and the Mojo Burning Roadshow series.

Known in the industry for a heavy and constant touring schedule, their brand of Blues Rock has seen them perform in all states of Australia thus far with 8 full-scale national tours (20+ dates) under their belts. These included epic 72 and 65-date jaunts.
