Watch our new video for Plenty!
When asked what ‘Plenty’ was about, Frankie said, ”It’s a rallying cry for irregular folk, A unifying call (and response) for anyone living life in the real world, with all its bumps, dents, cracks scars & warts. Imperfections create friction, and friction creates warmth,.. warmth is essential to human life. Sing it loud!!!”
Sober & Godless is our new album and is to be released on our own label ‘Black Matilda Music’. The album was produced by Steve James (Thin Lizzy, The Jam, The Screaming Jets).
Frankie: “The making of this album saw us wondering at this whole folk/punk thing as a wider genre, and what it means to us. The sickeningly rich tradition of people telling their story to song has continued unbroken by time, distance or malevolence. We see no good reason why it should stop with us. Call it celtic punk, folk, rock or whatever, we have to keep telling each other our story, thats the only thing that keeps us human.”
Johnny summed it up best.
‘Since we started we NEVER wanted to do anything half-arsed. That has never changed and never will. Seeing the results from working our arses off for Sober & Godless has only made us want to work harder than we ever had’
The Official Release Date for ‘Sober & Godless’ is Friday 6th February, 2015.
