Hello everyone and welcome to our PledgeMusic page. Tom here, to fill you in on the exciting plans we’ve hatched for our new record, ‘Easy Fantastic’.
Weʼve spent the last year, quite uncharacteristically, holed up in darkest North London making our third album. We got the chance to work with a new producer Ian Grimble, who has worked with everyone from Manic Street Preachers and The Fall, to Siouxsie & The Banshees and KT Tunstall. The record sounds amazing and we’re so excited about it.
As you may know, weʼve always self released our music in the past and going forward weʼd like to try something a little different, in partnership with Moshi Moshi and again on our own Wire Boat Recordings.
Weʼve teamed up with Moshi Moshi and PledgeMusic to release the follow up to “Teenage Blood” directly to you along with a shed-load of new items, exclusive experiences and signed goodies, all direct from us.
Firstly, you can pre-order or ʻplegdeʼ for the new album on either digital, CD or vinyl formats, which will later be sent to you as soon as the record’s ready. But thereʼs also much more on offer…weʼre offering signed CDs, signed vinyl, personalised mixtapes (actually on CD), huge signed posters, pirate golf with the band, sunday lunch and rehearsal with the band, exclusive house concerts and even the chance for you and I to write a song together. No matter what you chose from the list on the right hand side, weʼll throw in a high quality digital download of our new album a week ahead of the general release date. There’s also a particularly odd pledge including our beards and a bag, for all your oligarchs out there, but I’ll leave you to find that one….
Once weʼve hit our minimum pre-order demand, displayed by the percentage scale shown above, we can go ahead and start putting the wheels in motion, updating you throughout the duration of the pledge with FREE and EXCLUSIVE videos from the studio, photos, blogs and perhaps even a preview of a new song or two….
A percentage of proceeds will be donated to the Kent Air Ambulance, who, as we all know, do incredible work and is a charity that my family and I have had direct and very positive contact with, so each pledge will also be contributing to great cause….
Oh and for those who canʼt wait, as soon as you pledge youʼll get an IMMEDIATE download of a brand new single “Hurricane” from the new album, you’ll find it here http://www.pledgemusic.com/projects/easyfantastic/updates/31573
This is the first song that anyone will have heard from the sessions that became our second album!
We hope you love the album and all the other packages we’ve put up here….
More news soon folks but in the mean time, pre-order the album, chose a pledge, and get the free track and get excited!
Lots of love from everyone in The Boat
