When quizzed if they had been planning a reunion for a long time, Ollie replied: "No, we do do shows still with four or five of us so we’re regularly in touch. We talk about it, but this has brought it to the forefront. The time is now to do it. He’s done us all proud." Singer Chris McKeckney hinted that they are ready for a big tour, telling The Sun: "If we can make it happen, then we will. It has to be done in the right way but we're not against it. I think the first thing is, we've been doing a few shows, so to up that to a tour, if we were to do anything that would be the first point of call, see how that goes then who knows."
