Easy pledgers! We have finally finished our debut album – it will be called ‘A Word To The Wise’ and it’s freaking sweet. Expect all your favourite Popes stuff – tubthumping beats and basslines, skanking sax and loadsa party bangarangs!
After a summer of recording in various secret locations, and after many Gin & Tonics in a can, we have finally got our act together and recorded the album. It will be a mix of re-recorded Popes classics such as ‘Badman’ and ‘I See Dub People’ as well as loadsa new ones such a ‘Now You’ll Never Know’ and ‘Holding Out For More’.
Our drummer Jacques Cousteau and our good pal Paul Jones were at the helm of recording this time so we finally have got the sound we have always wanted, which was for it to be as close to our live set as possible. It goes without saying that we are mega pleased with the results and can’t wait for you lot to hear it!
We are asking our mates/fans to pledge to pre-order the album for it’s early 2013 release. In exchange for your generosity, we will be dropping loads of fun little bits like videos and updates to keep you in the loop with wagwan.
HOW IT WORKS: You can pledge to pre-order the new album, which is the basic pledge. If you choose to pledge for one of the ‘Exclusives’ on the right, you will get the digital version of the album sent to you AS WELL as the ‘Exclusive’ listed.
Cheers for pledging!
