The band played a set at the Seabright arms pub to launch the track, 'Creatures', showcasing an electro pop sound.

Irish rockers Ash axed their bassist Charlotte Hatherley because she wasn't taking the band seriously enough.
Hatherley left the band last year (06), and it was thought she left amicably to pursue a solo career.
However, frontman Tim Wheeler insists they let her go because her heart wasn't with the band anymore.
He says, "It was our decision for her to go. She wanted the best of both worlds - to be a solo artist and to be in a band.
"I could tell her heart wasn't in it and it made things awkward between us."
Ash frontman TIM WHEELER is concerned about the future of the Northern Irish band after declaring fans have become "jaded" with the group.
The group - comprising of Wheeler, bassist MARK HAMILTON and drummer RICK MCMURRAY - started a new phase of the band last year (06) following the departure of guitarist Charlotte Hatherley.
Wheeler says, "I think we're totally underrated. That's really annoying. I think it's because we've been around so long. People get jaded."
Ash have been working hard on their fifth record due out July this year (07) and our hoping that this will catapult them back to the top, where they feel they belong.
The split is reported to be amicable with Hatherley planning to spend more time working on her solo projects - while original bandmembers Tim Wheeler, MARK HAMILTON and RICK McMURRAY will begin work on their sixth album later this year (06).
An official statement reads: "After nine years Ash and Charlotte Hatherley have mutually agreed to part company. The decision is completely amicable and they wish each other the very best for the future.
