Thar she blows! Man the rigging! Our second album is up ahead and it’s an enormously glorious beast to behold! With your help we really hope to release this beauty on vinyl. So come one, come all and join us on the musical high seas to make our wildest dreams come true...

The great thing about this project, from your perspective, is that we’ve already done all the recording, mixing and mastering and we have the finished product in our pockets. All you need to do is get yourself a copy on vinyl. We’ve worked our little socks off recording the album at Pumpkinfield Studios with the musical guru, Pete Harvey (he of King Creosote and Modern Studies fame). As an added treat we brought in ‘Wee’ Al Hamilton, a man of diminutive height but enormous musical stature, to get his horn a blowin’. The result is a thing of beauty.

Having come this far, we would love to release the album on vinyl. To make vinyl production an economic proposition, we have a goal of having at least 65 pre-orders at £20 each. So, if you pledge £20 you’ll get yourself a spankingly beautiful copy of our new album on record, with very special cover art by Scottish artist Iain MacDonald. But there’s no limit on what you can pledge. We’d be over the moon if you want to pick up more copies or just pledge a bit more to support our music!

As a special option for the dead keen amongst you, we've also included an option to buy a limited signed copy of the record, including an exclusive digital track: "Dance Of The Bloody Foreland", original album artwork and sheet music for your favourite track.

Have a sneaky peek at our trailer video for some added nonsense (and some tasty little morsels of the new tracks)!

Track listing:

Side A:

  • Miles From Home
  • Blackwaterside
  • The Game
  • Down Again By Blackwaterside

Side B:

  • Spindrift
  • Zeitgeist
  • The Scene
  • Dreaming Of St. Jude

Our plan is to release the record towards the end of 2018, help us make the vinyl dream a reality!

Risks and challenges

As we've already recorded and mastered the music, everything is pretty much ready to go, so no real risks to speak of.
