Our first album was only made possible through the support of you lovely people, and we were completely blown away by the response! This time around, we will be heading to Cube Studio in Cornwall, which has hosted a plethora of incredible artists, including Mad Dog Mcrea, Sub Motion Orchestra, 3 Daft Monkeys and Land of the Giants, to name a few.
The studio is booked, let's introduce our producer, Mr Al Scott!
We had the pleasure of working with him on our first album, and quite frankly, we're humbled that he's coming back for round two! His production credits read like a who's who of music, with the likes of Levellers, Sinead O'Connor, Oysterband, Tom Robinson and Eliza Carthy. With nearly 40 years in the industry, we can hardly believe our luck we've got him with us! Al will be producing, mixing and mastering as-yet-unnamed Album #2, and we think you'll agree that this record will be in safe hands with him at the helm.
We've had an incredible couple of years, including a whirlwind 7 gigs at Glastonbury Festival, sets at Beautiful Days, Oceanfest, Chagstock, Big Feastival (to name a few), plus teaming up for countless rowdy shows with Mad Dog Mcrea, Ferocious Dog, The Eskies and many other bands we've met along the way and are proud to call our friends. It's been one hell of a ride so far, and we can't wait to see what this year brings us!
Our band have made lots of beautiful friends along the way, and we're grateful for all the support they've shown us. We need you guys more than ever now.
An incredible opportunity has presented itself. We have been in negotiations with some super-talented people and have assembled the team that is going to produce our second album in style. Those of you who've come to our shows over 2017 will have noticed that we've been using you as guinea pigs and testing out our new songs on you. We want to make sure that everything we put on this album is stuff that you'll enjoy (of course!), and road-testing material is the best way to make sure we know exactly what you guys like!
First off, we hope you're as excited about this as we are, but we need your help. We've estimated it will cost around £10,000 to get the album recorded. This is without CD duplication and fulfilment. We've got some nice gigs in the diary to help fund some of this cost but we need to know there's enough interest in this album to make it viable. We want to do this, and we want to do this properly.
In short, we're asking you guys from the bottom of our hearts to share our vision and pre-order our Album.
Have a look on the right-hand side (use the menu at the top and tap 'rewards' if you're on a mobile device) and you'll see a list of incredible items to choose from. These range from a signed copy of the CD, all the way to one-to-one tuition with us and everything in-between, including T-Shirts, signed merchandise and even VIP experiences. We hope you'll find something that interests you.
We'd also like to grow our network, so please do share this page on Facebook & Twitter (other social networks are available!) and spread the word. The more people we have on board, the more likely we are to succeed.
By supporting our campaign, you'll be helping one of the most passionate bands out there to record a truly unique album with some of the best names in the business at the helm.
We don't forget our friends, and if you help us now then we'll remember that. We see ourselves as a family, and you'll become part of our family. Each and every one of our fans is special to us.
We're completely independent. We don't have the big budgets that the labels have and we're self-funded. No corporate sponsorship. This has many benefits, but also has its drawbacks. Namely no big pot o'gold. By supporting this album, you'll be helping to keep art independent. This is important.
We anticipate the Album will be delivered in July 2018. We won't rush it, but conversely we don't want to keep you hanging on too long. We've got the track list ready and rehearsed and we're ready to go! So you will get your order before the album's official release date, as well as anything like T shirts, bags, etc towards the end of May/beginning of June.
We're well-rehearsed, we've all been into pro studios before and we know what we're doing. This is an opportunity we simply will not squander.
Your money will be held securely and paid out directly to the people we need to pay to get this done. If for whatever reason the Album doesn't happen, any funds that have been collected will be automatically refunded. This is extremely unlikely but in the interest of honesty and transparency we're putting it here. It's a big ask, and we hope you'll trust us to deliver something special.
