The band will suspend their new album rehearsal and writing sessions due to the ongoing Covid-19 outbreak in the UK. This is due to people being at severe risk of infection in the immediate circle of the band, and with the new variant of the virus, younger people are now becoming more regularly infected. 1 in 20 people across all age groups in some areas of Essex are now infected with the virus and it was decided today by the band that suspending the album sessions was the safest decision moving forward.
Sessions will resume as soon as vaccinations become available and assuming rehearsals and recording sessions remain legal. This means that the new album, which the band began work on in late 2019, will be further delayed until further notice along with the new EP.
Tonight the UK Musicians Union has confirmed that studios that are Covid-19 safe can continue to offer both rehearsals and recording sessions under the new national lockdown. This means we will continue to write and rehearse our new album at Pioneer Music for the duration of the lockdown while remaining as safe as possible throughout the process.
As we’ve had a few enquires as to where certain merch items are we thought it would be best to make a clear statement as to whats happening with the band during the Covid 19 lock down here in the UK.
All shows are cancelled unless stated otherwise by the venue
The Waystone EP recording is suspended due to the closure of the recording studios due to Covid 19
Rehearsals are also cancelled due to the studios being shut due to the Covid 19 lock down
Posting items is more difficult due to limited times and items being taken by the UK Post Office
New album writing rehearsals have also been suspended although we’re collaborating between ourselves from home working on songs for the new album
We are sorry for the delays and we’re doing our best. We’ll finish the EP and get the CD’s to you as soon as we can but the studios are simply closed at the moment and we cannot get in to finish recording it, let alone mix and master it. We’ve not even seen each other in person since March 13th 2020.
On items you have ordered some have been posted already but please bare with us on the delays – the Post Office is only working a small number of hours, has limited staff and will not always take our items as they are not a priority. You will get everything you have ordered ASAP. You will have digital copy’s of everything you have ordered to enjoy on the bandcamp app.
We’re offering support for those currently in self isolation by giving out download codes for Bandcamp. We have an excess of review codes so figured why not offer out those that weren’t used to those currently unwell, in self isolation with time on their hands.
