Today is a really exciting day. Graveyard Tapes, my project with the immensely gifted Matthew Collings, release our second album ‘White Rooms’ at the beginning of November and this is now available to pre-order from our lovely label Lost Tribe Sound. I am immensely proud of this record and if you order it you will also receive a download of the unreleased bonus EP ‘The Price of Ambition’ that we recorded in between the making of albums 1 and 2. Since our debut album ‘Our Sound is Our Wound’ we have been working hard on developing and progressing as artists and we both feel that ‘White Rooms’ represents significant steps forward as a duo. We were also lucky enough to have some wonderful collaborators on the record including a number of writing credits for Ben Chatwin aka Talvihorros and the incredible William Ryan Fritch. Please please check out our new album. It’s available on 12″ vinyl, CD or as a download. We hope you like it. Here are some images:
Devastatingly beautiful. Taken from the near perfect record ‘The Ideal Crash’.
“This is the argument that I always feel like never gets as much traction as the ‘tortured artist’ argument, [which] is that artists actually have it a little easier because everybody fucking suffers but artists have something to do with it.”
For me, these guys eclipse most Scottish artists. Whilst old label mates Frightened Rabbit are off making it big and running the risk of becoming the next Snow Patrol/Elbow (thank god for Owl John) and many others are either disappearing or not really going anywhere, these guys just keep making great music. If I am honest, I was not a fan ‘Forget the Night Ahead’ but ‘No One Can Ever Know’ is brilliant and I am loving the sound of this new track taken from forthcoming album ‘Nobody Wants to Be Here and Nobody Wants to Leave’ out on FatCat on 28th October – oddly, the same day as Graveyard Tapes new record ‘White Rooms’ drops. Anyways, enjoy.
