The Longest Mile
In December 2009 the band met record producer Phil Tennant. Phil had been known for his key involvement with many successful roots bands. Having produced albums for The Levellers, The Waterboys, The Saw Doctors, The Newcranes and The Tansads, he and also went on to manage The Waterboys and discover pop sensation Pixie Lott.
The band met with Phil to discuss their plans for a new album and, having heard some demos, Phil liked it and agreed to become involved. Phil and the band are in the process of recording the album at Rockfield Studios in Wales with engineer, Adam Whittaker.
This new album has been described as "an ambitious record that creates a dark and brooding atmosphere, contrasted by lighter and sweeter moments. Featuring distinctive vocals, raw folk instrumentals and fresh, poetic lyrics".
