Their debut album Buildings was released in March 2010 after having signed to Infectious Music in the Summer of 2009. The album reflects the frustration felt watching friends succumb to alcohol and doing nothing to better their lives. "It's all quite upbeat, poppy and rocky but the contents are all pretty bleak," says Owen, "It was being aware of everybody wrecking themselves and not realising it. I'm sure everyone has something they really want to strive for, something they really want to achieve and it's the frustration of not being fit to achieve it yourself and watching people not even try."

Over the last few years, General Fiasco have been nominated for a Kerrang!! Magazine Award for Best British Newcomer, played storming sets at Reading and Leeds Festival, debuted at Summer Sonic in Japan and have supported Snow Patrol, Kids in Glasshouses, The Answer and The Enemy.
