Hi there Pilgrims.
As ever, although we've been quiet for a bit, we haven't been kicking our heels, oh no, lots to tell you.
We're delighted to announce that we have a new single, "Cylindrical Fire Escapes" due out on Friday the 14th of April, and to celebrate we're having an intimate launch party that night at our favourite London haunt the Betsey Trotwood, 56 Farringdon Rd, EC1R 3BL. Tickets are available here, and the first 30 ticket-buyers will also receive a FREE CD of the new single. We'll also have very special guest Matt Edible (formerly of the mighty Edible 5ft Smiths) appearing with his awesome new project, Matt Edible & the obtuse angels.
If you want to hear a sneak preview of Cylindrical Fire Escapes, it's already been picking up some play and lovely words from the good folks at Amazing radio.. And there's going to be a quite exquisite video for it that we can't wait to share with you too.. Next time we promise.
Following on from that in June, we're thrilled to be releasing "Moon Lagoon", our 4th album in 4 years, though our new home Farm Music. Farm Music is a new label from the Farm Music studio in Oxfordshire, which has been turning out a steady stream of acclaimed alternative/independent albums since its inception in the winter of 1999 (alumni include Black Nielson, Goldrush, Danny & the Champions of the World, Electric Soft Parade, The Dreaming Spires, Ralfe Band & of course Co-pilgrim, to name but a few). "Moon Lagoon" will be available to pre-order in a few weeks, and will be coming out on CD, digitally, and on deluxe 'lagoon blue' Vinyl with a gorgeous gatefold sleeve featuring original artwork from a brilliant Finnish artist called Jussi Virkkumaa.
We'd like to extend our heartfelt appreciation to Darren & Mari and the wonderful people at Battle Worldwide Recordings for all their belief, love & support over the last 3 albums, they're some of the good guys..
Much more news soon, but that's it for now, hope to see some of you Londoners at the Betsey on April 14th.
