Truths, Lies & Half Lies

After a very long wait our new album 'Truths, Lies & Half Lies' is almost here. The release date for the album is the 15th May and you can now pre-order this as a CD or a download from Bandcamp the price for the CD is £10 (the first 1000 copies are a limited run Digi-Pak...looks gorgeous) and the download is priced at £8, the great thing about the download is that you can choose either MP3 for speed or WAV and FLAC for high definition reproduction.

The artwork has been painted by a very gifted artist called Iyan De Jesus over in the Philippines and aside from being so talented Iyan was a joy to work with too.

Thank you so much to everyone who pledged to make this album possible, it really would have been impossible without your help. Please spread the word about the album as we honestly believe that it's a fantastic album and even after all the recording and mixing time, we still have it on constantly.

We have just released a track out into the open, 'Time For Change' is below if you need convincing, it was hard work choosing a track to pick out as we're really very proud of all 11 of them.

Update No 2

Hi all,

We're getting nearer to hearing most of the component parts of the songs put together, we're all REALLY excited about it as we can already hear how the album is growing. One of the great things about recording this way is the element of surprise at certain parts even though we are on the album there are parts that each one of us will be surprised about. Shaun and Charlotte have been very busy doing the vocals and Andy has been very busy too recording the keyboard parts. We have a couple more days of recording to finish and then Al will start mixing it.

Another very exciting element of the album is the artwork, we can't wait to share with you, not only the sound of the album, but also the look of it too, the cover is truly stunning. We'll post an image of the artwork near to the time of release.

Hope you are all well and we will give you another update when the mixes have been done.

Work in progress

Hi all,

We have been busy beavering away with the new album and it's already exceeding our original expectations for a few reasons, mainly it's that we are really enjoying ourselves during the recording sessions and it's a great vibe to have while we are recording, it brings the best out of all of us and it has so far done that. Our engineer Al Unsworth is such a joy to work with, he just has a knack of getting us all to relax and perform at the top of our ability. So far we have recorded drums, guitars, bass and some vocals for the album, vocals will be done over the next couple of weeks and then the keyboards will complete the recordings. The track list is;

Truths, Lies & Half Lies
Time For Change
House Of Dreams
You're Coming Home
Looking Glass

The running order of the tracks is yet to be decided, it'll be done at the end of the tracking. We will be having the album mastered this time around which makes a huge difference to the overall sound of the album and is a first for the band. We have found an incredible artist who is creating the front cover, we will also be working with the very talented Ian Taylor for the photographs and as always we have the amazing Lemonshed working with us on the layout. It's all exciting.....trust me....I'm a guitarist :)

Dave and the rest of the So & So's xx
