Speaking to NME about the follow-up to their 2010 debut 'Happiness', Hutchcraft said: "We had to push ourselves and express the more intense, darker side which lies at the heart of our music. The first record was mainly about love and loss. This is a record about sex and death. The whole process was one of the heaviest and most extreme experiences we've had, but now we're on the outside looking in, it feels like we've made something truly unique and special."

The tracklisting for 'Exile' is as follows:

'Exile'
'Miracle'
'Sandman'
'Blind'
'Only You'
'The Road'
'Cupid'
'Mercy'
'The Crow'
'Somebody To Die For'
