Their third album Kill Your Own, with production duties handled by guitarist Larry Hibbitt, was released on March 20th, 2006, and has so far sold more than 28,000 copies worldwide. The band completed a sold out UK tour in March 2006 and spent the summer playing festivals, including Reading/Leeds, touring Europe and playing in Japan. Their October 2006 tour was postponed due to singer Colin Doran suffering from career-threatening vocal nodes. It was later rescheduled for January 2007.
On August 9th 2006 it was announced on the band's official website that guitarist and vocalist Paul Townsend would be leaving the band following their tour of Japan in early September. The departure was said to be "totally amicable". Ben Doyle of The Lucky Nine has since joined the band as guitarist.
