When the band returned to Scotland they started working with Andrew & the Honey Badgers were born.

The band released a self-produced 12 track CD in 2010 & recorded in London during November 2011 with Arno Guveau & Steve Honest. They have most recently been back in the studio recording new material with producer Martin Oswald.

2016 was a great year for the band, with particular highlights being their review in Scotland's national newspaper, the Daily Record, receiving critical acclaim from Rick Fulton, opening the Saturday night rock show on Amazing Radio & ending the year with a headline appearance at King Tuts Wah Wah Hut in December.

With each band member actively involved in the songwriting their music has grown over the years & is now focused on a more authentic rock sound combining riffs with melodies & musical dynamics in abundance.
