Leeds Cockpit, April 2008.

This is a slightly blurry shot of our buddy Ultre, performing at a gig we organised way back in 2008. The line-up that night was us, Ultre and a young up-and-comer called Ólafur Arnalds. Was a great night!
This picture, incidentally, was used in what we called our ‘Arrivals Picturehouse’ project, as we printed up 100 pictures, all unique, and put one in each of the limited edition versions of our debut album ‘Arrivals’, back in 2009. It’s long since sold out now, but there’s one still for sale on our Bandcamp as part of the big treasure trove sell off.
The other 99 pictures from the Picturehouse project, by the way, can be seen here: arrivals.tumblr.com
We did this mix originally for www.theweekid.com, but we thought we’d share it on here too, as Mixcloud is rubbish for embedding properly on tumblr!

Hope you enjoy it! You can pre-order our new album and hear a track from it here, and there’s a ton of stuff we’re selling off on our Bandcamp to help pay for stuff too!
As part of our Pledge campaign, we ran 3 things called ‘treasure troves’, which were basically big boxes of rare odds and sods we’d collected over the years. However, no-one bought them and we reached over 100% anyway, so we broke them up and we’re now selling the things individually on our Bandcamp page.
We’ve added a few more bits to this big sell off thing today, including the very hard to find Heart Monitor CD from 2010. Go have a look here:
So we decided to scrap the treasure troves from our PledgeMusic campaign and sell the stuff individually on our Bandcamp. If you head over there now, you can now buy some insanely rare stuff like old master CDs, t-shirts from by-gone eras, promos, and a whole ton more. We’ve also introduced our ‘Archive Series’, which are a run of super limited CDs featuring stuff we had locked in the ‘satan archives for years. There are three at the moment: a radio session from 2009, two live sets from 09 &10, and one of the ‘4 Dreams Of Miss X’ project we did back in 2010. Go have a look and pick something up here:
We did it! We funded the album! Holy moly you lot - thanks so much for sticking with us whilst we did this, your support means so much to the both of us, so thank you again!
The pre-order will stay open for another 40 or so days, after which the pledge ends and you’ll have to wait until March 2015 to get a copy ;)
Head over to the Pledge page to pre-order the album, and you’ll also get to hear a track from the record if you head to the ‘Updates’ page.

Album influence mixtape
We were asked by the lovely people at The WeekID to put together a mixtape, so we decided to show off all the influences that went into our new record (which is now 94% funded!)
