Yngve & The Innocent Debut Album Release

By Yngve & The Innocent


We have recorded and mastered an album that we are very excited about and proud of but we need your help to get it out into the world. Last year we spent 20 days recording in Londons Soup Studio with Simon Trought at the helm and the songs were beautifully mastered by Graeme Wilson [R.I.P.]. This album is the culmination of 3 years spent touring and recording and is, in our humble opinion, the best we have been able to capture our sound.

Your money will go towards pressing the album onto CD's in beautiful packaging and towards efficient promotion through Bloody Awful Poetry a PR company we used for our last single 'Draw A Line' which got us lots of favourable coverage in print and online media and got us played on BBC Radio 2 by Steve Lemacq.

Finally it will help us to acquire a new (newer!) tour bus to get us around and protect us from the elements while we're on the road. We had to sell our previous one as it no longer met the London Low Emission Zone Criteria.

We're a hard working band and last year played over 100 shows across the UK, Ireland + Spain. As an independent band, touring is the lifeblood of our existence and a way to get our music to the people and to build up a fan-base. Without a vehicle to do this in we are no better off than a bird with clipped wings. This year we're embarking on our first German Tour in March but as of yet have no means of getting there!

We have a wide variety of rewards available.. every single reward purchased helps get us one step closer to releasing this album and getting us on the road. Please spread the word and if you're able and willing to help us we will be forever grateful,

Lots of love and thanks in advance,

Yngve & The Innocent



New E.P. Out Now!

Dearest Funders! Following on from our Debut Album which you all so generously helped make possible we've recorded and released a new E.P. called 'Keep Your Ear Close To The Ground' featuring 4 previously unreleased songs including our next single 'Time May Change'. https://andtheinnocent.bandcamp.com/ Just over 11 Months ago, in November 2013, we started recording the new songs at the equally new premises of Soup Studio in London.. similar to our last Album we again had the wonderful Simon Trought at the helm, most capably assisted by Giles Barrett, David Holmes and Sam Beer who all played their part in forming the sound over the course of the recording sessions. After putting the finished touches to the songs over the summer months we're finally ready to set them loose.. The final gloss was put on by the expert hands of Kai Blankenberg of Skyline-Tonfabrik in Düsseldorf who mastered the E.P. for us - and who we will most definitely be working with again on future releases. Very special thanks also goes to Jill Tegan Doherty who at very short notice came up with the goods and created beautiful custom Artwork in her Berlin studio for us to use! We'd love nothing more than to have these songs heard by as many folks as possible so please feel free to share and spread the word! You can listen to, download and buy the E.P. here! https://andtheinnocent.bandcamp.com/ Happy Listening!
