Are we nearly there yet………….?
The answer to that question is thankfully (and finally!) yes, we are nearly there. It has been a long old slog and we’ve hit some delays along the way; relocation, change of occupation, return to education, a long haul vacation, eternal damnation, birth registration, marriage celebration, a big fat gypsy altercation, a touch of constipation and general inundation have meant the release date has been postponed on more than one occasion. However we are very pleased to confirm that album #2 (it does have a title but if we told you that now, we’d have to kill you) will be released on Monday 21st April 2014.
The final mixes are done and we are very excited to be heading down to the big smoke on Thursday 30th January with producer Jim to get the album mastered by Frank Arkwright at a little studio called Abbey Road (you may have heard of it).
We’ve also been working alongside photographer extraordinaire Johnathan Clover to produce the artwork for the album cover. He rounded us up for a photo shoot on Talacre Beach earlier this month and judging from the 'Is that really you in that photo??!' responses we’ve been getting the results of his handywork are pretty darned good!
The album launch party will take place at the one and only Telford’s Warehouse, Chester on Saturday 19th April. Entry is free before 9.00pm but please get there early to avoid disappointment as it is the Easter Bank Holiday weekend. We’ll be following this up with a gig at Central Station, Wrexham on Saturday 26th April as part of the fantabulous Focus Wales event. Early bird tickets are available now so get ‘em while they’re hot!
We’ll be confirming more gigs shortly, along with details of the first single to be released from the new album so keep checking the twitter feed and facebook page for updates. In the meantime; smile everyday…. while you’re counting…. counting your greys.
