huge thanks to Travellers Tunes for naming We Are Humans at No.14 on their Top 30 Albums of 2019 list. there are some awesome releases on there, so it’s great to see our effort in and amongst them. have a butcher’s here.
if you still haven’t listened to We Are Humans, you can stream it in all of the usual places here. it’s also available on limited edition white vinyl (they look even better than that sounds), and you can buy them here for £15 plus P+P.
this time last year, we’d written two tracks and had no idea what we’d end-up doing with them. to have signed a deal with Fierce Panda was a massive honour, and the final result is something that we’ll always be immensely proud of.
thanks to everybody that’s supported us in 2019. roll on 2020…
i’m guessing that most of you will have heard our fourth album ‘We Are Humans’ by now. it was released digitally on 30 August and is available to stream or purchase in all of the usual places (click here for the links), but far more exciting than that is this physical release…
Fierce Panda have produced some limited edition white vinyl copies of the album, which are released on 25 October. and to be quite honest, they’re absolutely fucking beautiful. you can order them through Fierce Panda, or through my independent spoken word record label Nymphs & Thugs (click here).
we’ll also be selling them at gigs, and they’ll be stocked in a small selection of independent record shops as well – so either way, it’s easy enough for you to get your hands on a copy for £15 plus P+P. huge thanks to Kerry Harrison for the sleeve design and to Mark Coverdale for the final touches. just look at ’em…!
it’s finally here. our new album ‘We Are Humans’ is available via all major digital providers here. and even more exciting than that, you can pre-order it on limited edition white vinyl here. that’s out on 25 October.
now then! ahead of the Leeds gig, a couple of folk were chatting on Facebook about how much merch money they were planning on bringing. at which point i had a very sudden realisation that we didn’t have any merch.
so, i threw together some designs, contacted RDS Print in Wakefield (not a sponsored plug, i just like to support local businesses) and around 5 minutes before the doors opened at Hyde Park Book Club, we had three t-shirts ready to sell.
the t-shirts cost £10 each plus P+P, and at the moment they’re available in S, M, L and XL. they’re Fruit of the Loom valueweight t-shirts, so they’re great for summer (and for afterwards, obviously). they’re available via Nymphs & Thugs here.
when alternative indie act Skint & Demoralised first emerged on the scene in 2007, Matt Abbott was completing his A-Levels and David Gledhill was producing in Sheffield under the guise ‘MiNI dOG’. demo plays on BBC Radio 1 from Steve Lamacq and Colin Murray led to a frenzy on the band’s MySpace page, and within 9 months they’d signed to Universal Records – one of those classic meteoric rises that the music industry churns out every now and again.
fast forward to 2019 and Matt Abbott is 30 years old; rapidly establishing himself on the UK’s flourishing spoken word scene. he recently completed a 22-date theatre tour with his critically acclaimed one-man show ‘Two Little Ducks‘. David Gledhill, known more recently for his SOULS project, is releasing a track a week from his East London studio on a new piano project called ’52 Weeks Makes A Year’. Skint & Demoralised have changed, and so has the world around them.
