You And I is set for release on October 6th - keep an eye out for a very special album deal coming your way soon. In the meantime, here’s a quick run down of what COYH have been up to lately – it’s bloody impressive!!

This July alone COYH played sixteen shows in four countries - which believe it or not, made it a quiet month for the band. Last October they played 9 shows in 5 days, in 3 different countries!

COYH kick started the New Year sharing the stage with Kings Of Leon and Black Rebel Motorcycle Club at Australia's New Years Eve Falls Festival.

They were then the first band in Big Day Out's history to be announced in the first round, without having released an album. They performed the entire Australasian Big Day Out tour circuit alongside the likes of Rage Against The Machine, Bjork, Arcade Fire etc

Constantly on the road, COYH have been touring non-stop throughout America and the UK even performing at Iceland's Airwaves Festival in October last year.

They've shared stages throughout the world with some of the best, Black Kids, MGMT, Pony Up, Love Is All, You Am I, We Are Scientists, Les Savy Fav, The Foals and London's electro kings Does It Offend You Yeah.

They've headlined several SOLD OUT NZ and Australian Tours including a monster summer tour with Shihad and The Datsun.

COYH’s performance was a notable highlight of 2007's SXSW Festival and the band were named Best New Band at New York’s CMJ Festival by NME magazine who flew in from London and did a full 2 page spread on the band.

First New Zealand band to sign to the prestigious 679 record label in the UK - home to the Futureheads, Mystery Jets, The Streets and The Polyphonic Spree.

Their first single "Oh Girl" hit #1 on UK's influential NME chart and sold out in 24 hours.

Still Fond was the #1 most played song on Australia's JJJ network radio station 5 weeks running, and remains the #13 most played track of all time on the station.
