The album itself is due for release on Friday, September 23. For pre-order and tracklisting, visit here.


One particular track, which arguably informed the direction of the album, was their take on “Hobo’s Lullaby”.

I've always wanted to be involved in the media since before I even left school; to write for a living.I feel most eloquent when mapping out my thoughts on paper or on a computer screen.I studied media at college for two years, and went straight into third year at university studying publishing with journalism.After a range of work experience, I did a magazine journalism course in Bournemouth, a long way away from my hometown of Aberdeen, achieving my NCTJ qualifications.Now I spend my time gladly writing about music.
