I feel like in the last year so many of you have come to shows, and sent messages, and opened up worlds to us, that we feel we’re ready to take on anything.
Maybe you heard some of the new songs in London, or Hamburg, or Rome, or somewhere? I want to paint them onto vinyl for you. And for me. And for the band. And for our friends, our family, the hole in the sky.
We feel like we have such momentum as a band, it’s time to get into a full on studio with great gear, away from the world, and make a record you’ll be listening to in 30 years.
So we’re going back to Northern Ireland and we’re going to throw our hearts as hard against the Unicorn’s ribcage as we can.
You don’t need to know much about the music world to know what a challenge it is to raise the money to make real records in a world of TV talent shows, but this is our chance to do it together, music for music’s sake.
Thanks for all your support – please help us spread the word… let’s get it all under one hat! I promise not to shave until we hit the target.
See you in the autumn.
