NEW ALBUM OUT:
We recorded our third album in Lincolnshire at the justly famous Chapel Studios earlier this year. There's a handful of songs we've been playing live for a while but have never recorded, some new arrangements, and even a song we've written ourselves, the title track Mud Blood & Beer - an anthem to the mighty fun we have had at festivals over the years. We think it's the best album we've ever made (well, we would wouldn't we?), but I think we might be right. And so far Metal Discovery (9.5/10) Louder Than War, Music OMH, Liverpool Sound & Vision, Bright Young Folk.com and Fame Magazine seem to agree...
