In 2004 The Ordinary Boys released their debut albumOver The Counter Culture preceded by the single Maybe Someday. In support of the album they embarked on tours supported by Kaiser Chiefs, and The Cribs.
In 2005 they released their second album Brassbound that spawned the hit Boys Will Be Boys the following year reaching Number 3 in the UK charts and Number 1 in the download chart. More albums and top ten singles hits followed such as Nine2Five, Lonely At The Top and I Luv U.
Having seen a change of line-up, the band are now back to the original line-up from our debut album Over The Counter Culture, plus the addition of Louis Jones from celebrated power-pop band Spectrals whom lead singer Preston met stage-diving at a Cribs gig when Spectrals were supporting, and knew immediately that he wanted him to be his new best friend/collaborator.
Outside of the band, Preston had been song-writing with John Newman and Example and had a number one with Heart Skips A Beat for Olly Murs, but hanging out with Louis, all they wanted to talk about were the punk and hardcore bands that had made them pick up guitars and form bands in the first place.
