The line up was completed when Danny Knowles joined the group on Bass. Shows included The Cowley Club, The Quadrant, Sticky Mike's Frog Bar in Brighton and The Black Heart in London. The band's final show was on 3rd September 2017 at the Prince Albert in Brighton.

"Due to us all being in other musical projects Auxesis is no longer active, but we are very supportive of each other. If you want your band to be a full time career it has to come before everything. Auxesis wasn’t never really about that, it was just about writing whatever we felt at the time and getting it out of our system. I think we all just loved doing it. Sometimes it doesn’t have to go further than that." Mel Sanson
