HELLO there! We are looking for funding to manufacture and release our second album Blood Feels Warm. The funding is to cover manufacture of CD and vinyl versions of the album, along with all release costs incurred such as PR, merchandise and touring.
Blood Feels Warm was recorded between Windmill Lane, The Hellfire Studios (Joe McGrath), our own private studio and Ciaran’s home studio. It has taken a year and half to complete from the humble beginnings of the songs written in kitchens, bathrooms and labour wards, from the recording process through to its fruition. Having lost two original members of the group since our debut Perfect Stranger and having parted with our record company 3u, the rest of us rekindled our love for song writing and the recording process throughout this period. Adding to the texture of the recording are many of our talented friends and family members who's stamps are interspersed throughout. The result is the collection of twelve confidently written and well crafted songs that we feel are our strongest to date. The album can be heard in full from our private soundcloud link below.
To anybody who has taken the time to read this we would like to thank you. The recording of our second album Blood Feels Warm has been a real labour of love and the "almost" finished article is something that we as a group are extremely proud of and most definitely looking forward to taking on the road. Artwork is being finished as we speak and as mentioned earlier YOUR contribution to the album is what will help us achieve our goal of an independent release at the end of April 2013. Any contribution is welcomed with open arms and please spread the word about the lovely rewards we have dreamt up for YOU! Again thank you from the bottom of our hearts Ciaran, Michael and Ross. We hope to see you soon x
So our project is there. One day early too : ) We are over the moon. THANK YOU EVERYBODY for your good will and patronage in making this project a goer. We will be in touch RE rewards asap. Really looking forward to getting the album back from print and sending it YOUR way. Lots of gigs planned for the near future too which we'll keep ya posted about. Again THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts. It is YOUR extreme generosity that has made this whole thing possible and we are humbled greatly by the response we have received. Lots of love, Ciaran, Murph & Ross xxx
