Album Artwork Revealed

Good evening, ladies and gents!

Earlier today, we unveiled the cover artwork for Of Roots and Flesh, our third album (recently recorded at Skyhammer Studios) through our Facebook page. The cover (and the rest of the CD layout and design) was completed by a good friend of ours, Sheffield-based artist Augustinas Naslenas, and he’s done an absolutely incredible job in bringing our vision to life. We can’t wait for you to see the rest of the packaging, this is definitely our most beautiful album yet!
Without further ado, here’s the front and back cover (minus the tracklisting):

More Website Stuff/Album Artwork

Good news, everyone!

We’ve done some more tweaking of the website- we think you’ll all agree that it looks a lot shinier, and we’ve also uploaded all the galleries that were on the site previously, as well as the pictures from our newest photoshoot with the stunning Manadh Photography. We’ll still be making changes here and there as we go along, but for now check it out and let us know what you think! There are comments boxes all over the site so you can tell us your thoughts.

We’ve also had more progress on the album artwork- it’s going well, and the cover is shaping up to look absolutely amazing, so hopefully we’ll be able to reveal that to you all soon. For those of you who backed us on Kickstarter, we’ll also be getting the design for the tshirts done once the album artwork is sorted, so once it’s finished we’ll be able to send out all the surveys to get your sizes and make sure we have everything we need to send you your rewards. Our artist Augustus Naslenas is hard at work, and we’re sure the results are going to blow you all away!

That’s all from us for now- enjoy the rest of your bank holiday!

Many thanks for all your support,

Chris

Website Redesign Complete!

Hey everyone,

Thank you for your patience – as you can see, our website redesign is now done, thanks to the hard work of Katie Sutton!

We’ll still be adding things and shining the site up as we go forward, and there’ll undoubtedly be some visual changes as we get the artwork sorted for the new album, but it looks a lot snappier than it did before.

Stay tuned!

Of Roots and Flesh: Teaser

Hi, everybody!

If you aren’t one of the excellent people who backed our Kickstarter campaign to fund the new album, but you’d still like to hear how the songs sound now that we’ve recorded them… you’re in luck! We’ve recently put together a short teaser video featuring snippets of three songs from the album and some photos from the recording taken by the talented Katie Sutton.

The tracks are ‘Taken’ (which we’ve never played live, so it’s brand new!), ‘Marston Moor’ and ‘Only Our Names Will Remain’. Take a look at the video and let us know what you think!

If the embed doesn’t work for you, you can also view the video on YouTube.

Of Roots and Flesh

Hello, everyone!

It’s been a long time since we updated this page, and for that we apologise- things have moved very quickly since the end of the Kickstarter campaign, and taking a bit of a break over Christmas didn’t help. Nevertheless, we’ve been updating away on our Facebook page- if you’re not following us on there (and why not?) here’s a summary!

  • The Kickstarter campaign was a rousing success- we raised £659 more than our target and were blown away by the generosity and kindness of everybody who pledged and everybody who spread the word.
  • The Astral Chaos Tour that we launched to support the campaign was also great fun- we got to play some great shows and hang out with the excellent lads in Eibon la Furies, which was a delight as always.
  • A couple of weeks ago, we entered the hallowed halls of Skyhammer Studio in Cheshire to begin recording the album- and as of today, we’ve had the first rough mix back. It’s sounding absolutely incredible, and we can’t wait to unleash it upon you all! We’ll be putting up a few teasers on the Kickstarter page and on our Facebook, so keep your eyes and ears peeled for those.

As you can see, we’ve been keeping ourselves busy! Now that the album is recorded, we intend to keep at it- our next step is to sort out some amazing artwork that matches the quality of the songs on the record. We’re hard at work on that, and again will be keeping you all updated every step of the way!

Thanks for all your support.
