Our new album has been streamed close to 32k times since we released it last month. We are still to receive streaming numbers from all the channels/streaming platforms but the breakdown for far is:
YouTube represents the largest chunk of our streams so far, with Spotify being the second most popular place to listen. There have been 78 CD pre-orders so far with 56 digital sales on Bandcamp. This further shows that streaming rather than buying is now firmly the most popular way to consume music for the majority.
The CD pre-order has been delayed slightly due to a change of templates with the printers, we are awaiting the new templates before we can send the job off for printing. We will continue to honour the pre-order price until the CDs arrive. You can pre-order here.
We now have the new album photos back from the photographer and are able to complete the artwork ready for submission with the duplication company. As stated previously these will be printed to the highest industry standard and houses in a super Jewell case. Included will be a full set of lyrics.
While we await production, we will extend the pre-order period for the duration. This means the price will remain at just £13 for the CD. You can pre-order the CD here.
Our new album has released in full. You can check it out here on Bandcamp or here on Spotify. The album is also available to stream from all other services. We have extended the pre-order period until the end of the month, so you can get the CD for just £13 here or the digital download for just £1. This is to help fund the cost of printing the CD’s.
We return to Unit One Colchester to resume our regular rehearsal sessions. We will be working on a set of material from the new album. Our next confirmed gig is at Coda, Colchester later this year (buy tickets) where we will be playing the new songs, with more gigs to be announced already in the pipeline.
Today we’ll also be out having our pictures taken by Rachel W Photography for the album sleeve. You can still pre-order the new album on CD and digital here. Patreons and Bandcamp subscribers are all credited in the album sleeve also.
A Slave to the Grind takes over as the bands most successful single in terms of pre-album streams since 2014’s Iron lady from The Waystone. Second Coming is also preforming well on YouTube, having had over 3000 views.
Despite a decent amount of plays and interaction pre-orders for the album remain low at just 45. We are working hard to get the number up to 100 to help with the costs of printing the new album on CD. You can pre-order the album here.
Over the past four days we have had over 5000 streams for our new single across a number of social media platforms.
The single, which now has over 3000 streams on YouTube, has been the most streamed after it’s immediate release since Iron Lady from 2014’s The Waystone which ended up in the 10k region before tailing off.
While the streaming across social media platforms has been strong, pre-orders for the album have remained low, and stand at just 40 total. We will continue to work hard to push the new album and get those numbers up over the next few days before the album releases on Monday.
Our new single has so far been streamed over 2,234 times across a number of platforms, however not all of these streams represent complete plays with a large % of listeners ducking out after the 10-15 second mark. Despite the high number of plays, pre-orders for the new album remain relatively low at 31 so far.
The totals of streams across the platforms for Second Coming are as follows:
289 – Bandcamp
286 – Facebook
78 – Instagram
1581 – YouTube

The CD version album is housed in a Super Jewell Case and contains a full colour booklet (with lyrics). These are more resilient than the regular Jewel cases and are typically more resilient to scratches and damage than the traditional CD case. We’ve used the replication method for these CD’s which is of a much higher quality. These are replicated to the highest industry standards.
