The Wrens – It Really Has Been 15 Years Since The Meadowlands

Today I spotted a tweet that gave me a proper chuckle. It surprised and failed to surprise me in equal measure. Here it is:

It’s true..

4 whole years! Those who know The Wrens will understand why, those who don’t, well have a look at these choice examples of why we’re still happy to wait, keen as ever to hear it.

All That We Had, We Stole by Patch & The Giant

We're incredibly pleased to announce that the first release on Backyard Records will be Patch & The Giant’s debut album All That We Had, We Stole.

The alt/indie folkers originally released this earlier in the year on CD, but have now allowed us to take it on to the format that music should be heard on.

Due to be released on 14th July - it’s going to be a limited run, all hand numbered, on heavy weight vinyl, in a beautiful gate fold sleeve including new artwork. Vinyl done properly. Get in quick and own one of the first 200 which will come with a unique photo and message from the band – yes each one unique!

The record is available to pre-order here, and will also be available straight from the band at any of their live shows and festivals.

Big thanks to Angie, Luke, Nick and the rest of Patch & The Giant for your hard work and patience in putting this all together – and being our first!
