Prelude.

When the 4 of us sat down for the first time and started playing music together, we knew that we weren't going to do things the way we're expected to, nor the way we'd maybe done things in bands before. 

'Ghosts' was a brave decision. Recording and releasing a debut single when we hadn't played any shows was daunting, never mind accompanying that with a video. But you all welcomed it, and us, with open arms. 

After our first show; the feedback and requests for a tangible 'Ocean Waves' was overwhelming and funnily enough, led us here! Another thing that we were worried about. Increasing the minimum days from 30 to 45 and also looking for less than we budgeted, we really weren't sure if anyone would share our vision. 

With all your help, love and support, we made it a reality. 

Here & Now.

That brings us to this moment.

We've spent the majority of this year so far; writing, demoing and fine-tuning the tracks for the album. It's been a blessing to be able to do so much of this ourselves and with every new hook, riff or demo, we get more excited about sharing this with all of you. 

In June we took to the studio with our good friend Steven Jones (Ghosts, Ocean Waves) to record the first 5 tracks for the album. These are done and waiting to go but now we need your help. 

We've spent a lot of time, energy and money to make sure this is as close to what we want our band to represent and after a lot of discussions, we want to bring it back here and include you all again. 

Why Kickstarter?

Pre-Orders crossed our minds. A lot of you were asking and we didn't have the answers to share. It feels weird to promote half an album and we were looking at it all the wrong way. 

Kickstarter taught us a lot when we campaigned for Ocean Waves and it made us realise a couple of things that we missed out on and this gives us a second chance. 

We want to include each and every one of you as much as we can in the process & Ocean Waves didn't allow for as much of that to happen. From Studio Diaries to Q&A's, Live sessions & more. We really want to start sharing this experience with you all, starting now. 

Risks and challenges

Timescales seem to be our biggest concern due to full time work. However, we're gonna keep on top of this and keep you guys up to date :)
