The 'Honey Sweet' rockers have opened up about the eclectic mix of artists that have inspired their ''euphoric pop'' record.
''There was a lot of fantastic Eighties pop going into the mix, along with all the other stuff that's been there all my life, like Abba and Oasis. It was a pretty eclectic variety, to be honest.''
Tom says the producer of the record, The Coral's James Skelly, helped by sending him songs he'd never heard before.
He said: ''He was always popping over stuff, one-off songs that he felt would inspire me or get me into a different corner where I wouldn't normally be.''
As for what the future holds for the Stockport band - completed by Charlie Salt, Josh Dewhurst, Joe Donovan and Myles Kellock - just want to keep making music and touring for a ''long, long time''.
Tom said: ''I think we see our success in longevity more than anything else.
''We want to be around for a long, long time, to still evolve as a band, to stay important to people.
We're still early on in our career, in terms of where we want to go; to be able to keep doing what we get to do will be a marker of having 'made it' as such.''
Tom and co release 'Cool Like You' - the follow-up to their 2016 self-titled debut - on Friday (27.04.18).
The band will head out on a May UK tour in support of the record, kicking off in their hometown on May 4 at Stockport Plaza, before wrapping at Norwich's The Nick Rayns LCR, UEA on May 12.
