Hello all,

It’s been two years since our ‘Remain In Hope’ campaign launched and what a great time we’ve had.

We had genuinely thought that the band was over. Two albums in, our gigs were getting less busy and we were barely breaking even. We weren’t sure if anyone cared any more. We still had something to say, and more music to give, so the Pledge campaign was our last roll of the dice.

We were astonished, and humbled, and your input and involvement was so incredible, so supportive, and so heartwarming, that we’ve decided to do it all over again.

So welcome to the Pledge campaign for our FOURTH album, tentatively entitled ‘BRAIN WAVES’. The album is more or less written, and we’re hoping to head into the studio at the end of November to start recording.

Also up for grabs during this campaign is our first DVD, a double-disc set, which will contain the live gig filmed at the Brudenell Social in Leeds in November 2014, as well as all the promos and EM Cribs and so on, a bunch more live stuff (including the legendary ‘lost’ live stream from the Wildhearts support in London 2013), plus exclusive commentaries on all the videos therein.

The album is written, but we need YOUR HELP raising some cash to get in the studio and record the thing, as well as getting them printed up. We’re thinking a nice posh digipak for this one.

Those of you who pledged on the last album will hopefully remember all the extras that we gave you for giving us your money upfront. Last time, this included exclusive tour diary videos, tracks, interviews, culinary tips and two acoustic mini-albums, plus all the usual updates as we go along.

This time, the first thing that EVERY pledgester will receive is an EXCLUSIVE four-track covers EP for immediate download (a couple of hours after the initial hubbub). Check it out (at 9pm after the launch) in the ‘Updates’ section.

We have loads of plans to give you more exclusive content…. the thing we’ve learned is that our pledgers are massive music fans, and although all the bells and whistles are cool, the main thing you seem to want is MUSIC. So, we’ve plans for another acoustic album, a live album, and the online gig that we weren’t able to factor in last time.

Plus, we’re giving 10% of our money after target to MIND, a charity close to all of our hearts. The underlying theme of this album is the mental health issues many of us face from time to time, and we thought it would suit to donate a healthy chunk of our and your money to this worthwhile cause.

Your belief in us has genuinely propelled us to this point. Thank you so much for that.

So, that’s it. Pie Club, assemble!!

10% post goal
10% of any money raised after the goal is reached will go to Mind.

We Cover A Song For You

£250
250.00
All gone!

Tell us what song you want us to cover, and we’ll do it. More or less anything – your band’s song, a tune you like and think we’d do a good job of, or something you think we’d massacre.

Ideas:
- your favourite song of all time ever
- a song your girlfriend or boyfriend particularly likes which you think they’d like to hear souped up by us
- your band’s song given the EM touch(es)
- a footie anthem for your team
- a demo you’ve written that you just can’t finish
- something for the first dance at your wedding (don’t laugh, we’ve done them before!)
- ‘Safety Dance’ by Men Without Hats

Last time, we did ‘Heroes’, a couple of songs by other people’s bands, and others mooted were Safety Dance, Wichita Lineman (which we’d already done) and Take On Me (which we’re destined to never do).

We respect your choices but reserve the right to ask if we can do something different…. No Skrewdriver, ta. This one is for YOU, and you can do with it what you like – but if you’re cool with it, we might put some of these tracks out on here for public consumption.

These aren’t cheap, as it’s a lot of hard work and studio time for us, but it’s worth it. You could even go in on it with some mates. We’ve kept the price lower than last time as it’s hard. But great.

Plus you’ll get an advance download of the album, and all the content EXCLUSIVELY available during the Pledge campaign – last time this was update videos, a free acoustic album download, interviews, covers and of course the cookery videos.

Because this is a premium pledge, we’ll make sure you get looked after, with a lithoprint and some other goodies.
