Pre-order is go!

You can now pre-order our new album 'This Is Where We Meet' here:

Please get involved and spread the word!

There are various choices of order - the album on its own, or you can get hold of other stuff including a limited edition screenprint, a poster and more. On top of that the 1st 40 orders of bundles 3 and 4 will receive a free t-shirt and EVERYONE who pre orders anything will receive a download of album track and live favourite 'Wake Up John' as soon as they place their order. So, yes, you can actually get a brand new track from the album now if you pre order! The track is also streaming on the pre-order page right now so please visit for a listen and take a look around at what's on offer.

Also, we wanted you all to know that we'll be putting funds we raise from pre orders towards promoting the release of the record in the summer. So this is an opportunity for us to fundraise (should you feel particularly generous, you can in fact 'name your price' at the check out!) and we wanted you to know that your pre-orders really will be helping us raise our profile. Needless to say we appreciate all your support.

Aside from all this though, a visit to this page is the fastest and simplest way to guarantee yourself one of the 1st copies of the record and some of the other great stuff on offer in the pre order.

So, please check it out and spread the word...This Is Where We Meet!

We'll be in touch again soon,

Seeing is believing

So here it is. After months of discussions, planning, frustration and the like, we've got ourselves an album. As you can see, it's called This is where we meet. Last week, the final masters were approved and, shortly after, the final design work for the artwork was signed off and sent to the printers. So, very shortly, we will have copies of the album that, without sounding too dramatic, represents about 3 years of this band's life.

Needless to say, we're very happy with how it all looks and sounds, and can't wait to let you all get your hands and ears on it. In the meantime, we're now booking up festivals (providing they don't all get cancelled) and gigs for the summer and beyond. All the details will be revealed, as these will probably represent the 1st opportunities for you to get your hands on This is where we meet

Alternatively, you will very shortly be able to 'pre-order' the album, along with a whole other bunch of goodies. This is an increasingly common model amongst smaller bands. In short, it allows bands to generate the revenue needed to put out the record people have paid for. We're in a slightly different place in that, we could put the record out tomorrow if we needed to, its more about how successful a launch we can give it. In line with this, we are in negotiations with some industry types about getting some support with putting the record out. More on that later though.

Finally, in the previous paragraph, I mentioned goodies. As with all 21st century bands, we're talking lots about merch. Unlike a lot of other bands, we've got Peter. That means AWESOME merch. keep an eye on our facebook page for some potential examples, as we're keen to make sure that you like it before we make it!

One last thing: If you're on Twitter, follow us and let's get #thisiswherewemeet trending!
