‘Shadows’ Reign’ out now!

Hey good people of planet earth!

The new album ‘Shadows’ Reign’ is now officially out on Xemu Records worldwide through all the usual digital distribution outlets and a limited run of vinyl..Be quick, there is only a small number of prints done for this! You can buy the record here

For humans in Australia, there are a small amount available from the legendary Half A Cow records and some have even made it into a few records stores around Sydney town..Red Eye and Egg to name a couple.

I really hope you enjoy the record..It’s been a real labour of love and I look forward to perhaps doing the odd show or two down the track..You never know when or where I might turn up..

2014 New album and more…..

Dear friends and comrades,

It’s good to be back in the land of the living after a long hiatus with much exciting news about my forthcoming album

It’s been a long 12 months of writing, re-writing and recording, but the end is indeed in sight!

Sometimes it seemed as if the mountain was too high to climb, but thankfully due to the help of some great people around me, I am near completion of my 2nd solo record!!

This time, the yet untitled album was recorded close to home here in Sydney

I decided to ask a few of my old partners in crime to contribute with the great Christopher Cobb on drums, Nic Dalton and Patrick Matthews on bass and David Owen on piano..Just to name a few…

Right now I am getting all my pieces together and badly labelled files ( from who knows when) and will begin mixing this week!

I’m super excited to announce that the very talented Evan McHugh has agreed to mix the album

Evan has worked with some amazing bands over the years including ‘Midnight Oil’ and ‘Jet’ just to name a couple

The new album has been a real labour of love and I can’t wait for everybody to hear it!

I’ll have more updates here very soon about the mix, track listing, new photos and tour plans for 2014/15..I promise not to take so long next time!!!

Don’t forget to come back soon and remember..

Lovers, stay true to your school!!!
