I imagine all expectations will be fulfilled; âAlong The Dewâ does not disappoint and follows on perfectly from âFar From The Callous Crowdâ. A full on blast of hardcore punk, tearing along with no let up, brilliant stuff! Pressed on red vinyl with black swirl.
This is what the band have to say about the album. âWeâve spent the last three years touring the Far From The Callous Crowd record to death so at the beginning of 2016 we thought it about time we cracked on with making a new album. Writing and performing new songs was a breath of fresh air and we were excited to capture it in the studio. On reflection I think this album is more chaotic and aggressive than the first. It has a lot of energy, a ton of riffs and is unrelenting in pace. Topically Iâve covered the DSEI arms fair, our trial against the UKBA, the convenient death of Luciano Ponzetto & the harrowing nature of domestic abuse. The title track, Along the Dew, is a fictional short story about a fallen huntsman struggling through the wintry earth and being chewed by woodland creatures. Happy stuff like that. Weâre really happy with this effort, which is saying something because weâre a bunch of pedantic bastards when it comes to this stuff.â
As with their debut album, the artwork is a woodcut print made by the amazing artist John Abell.
