Also you can download the track totally free here:
For those that don’t know already, we went to the countryside for two weeks last year to record our debut album in a dilapidated lambing shed with our good friend Iain Harvie behind the controls. We didn’t want the interference of labels, management, svengalis or businessmen, and correctly predicted their reluctance to spend time sleeping in caravans in Cropredy – which just left us, a dusty studio and a load of tunes.
Since then we’ve been out and about, playing shows and letting the bloggers do their thing while we geared up to let you guys taste the fruits of the farm in the shape of some free singles, before the album finally drops on 12th November.
In the meantime, you can make your merry way to http://pledgemusic.com/projects/holyvessels to access for all manner of delights, from exclusive album pre-orders to limited edition merchandise hand-made by our favourite artists, previews of album tracks and more.
We’ll be using the cash we raise to bring a night of musical joy to a town near you as part of our forthcoming tour, and everybody who pledges on the site will receive a digital copy of the album three weeks before it is released to the public. We’ll be regularly updating the PledgeMusic page with more news and music, so pop round for a butcher’s.
All the best!
