It's finally happening, we are recording our debut album, "Against The Wall", for release in 2020!

This campaign is to help us fund the making of our album, and the plan is to do it ourselves with your help . We want to get on and make this album for the fans and are offering great value for money rewards in return .

It’s been a long time coming but we think it will be worth the wait, we hope you do too! It's going to be a big step up from the 2015 EP, and we cant wait for you to hear it.

We will be recording the album in November at Riverside studios.

As a bonus for all backers we will give an instant free download link of an early recording of the album title song, "Against the Wall"!

Risks and challenges

Update 13 October 2019

The initial challenge was to hit target funding and we’ve made it! Thanks to everyone who has pledged, now we are setting ourselves some new challenges

What’s next?

We’ve arrived at base camp, now we’re going to conquer Everest!

Reaching the target means recording the album is secure, it will happen. But there’s so much more we can do, the campaign still has 28 days to run and so there is an opportunity to supercharge the album release!

What will additional funds be used for?
Promotion! The more you put in the more you get out
Videos! More and better
Chart success! You don’t get that by selling it yourself, but if we find the right partner...
Touring! Getting the band on the road on the right tours

What we can promise is that all funds raised will go directly to push the album and the band to new levels.

Thank you for your continued support

Scott, James, Marc, Matthew and Craig
