Hiya, we’ve been pretty quiet for a few months, beavering away on our new release. HERE ARE THE DETAILS: It’s called A Lesson In Repression, and it’s our second album. We recorded it with Andrew Bush (he of the Twilight Sad / We Were Promised Jetpacks / De Rosa fame) and Niall Sinclair in Edinburgh in two sessions, in April and December 2014. It was mastered by Alan Douches at West West Side Music in New York State in March 2015.

The album will be released on October 30th 2015 via our own Return of Order label, along with the wonderful Good Grief Records, who make a marvellous contribution to the general health of the Scottish underground (although they have connections further afield as well). We’re very much looking forward to working with them. The release format is still to be revealed, we’re going down a slightly less well-trodden path with this, so you’ll just have to wait and see… We have some special plans for the release show, which we’re very excited about. Again, we’ll reveal more when we feel like it.

The first video from the album is ‘A Fence To Keep People Out’, directed by the very talented Ciaran Lyons (find him at seaoflyons.com). We were lucky enough to get him before he becomes too big for us to afford, as he’s well on his way. The video has premiered on Canada’s Exclaim! site, and you can see it HERE.

The press for the album is in the very capable hands of A Badge of Friendship, if you need to contact them about anything you should speak to Paul, he’ll help you out: paul@abadgeoffriendship.com

Keep your eyes peeled for more news, or don’t, whatever you like.
