I realise it has been an age since we updated this website. A quick look at the home page reveals that we were still touting our April and May 2020 shows which of course did not happen.
Instead we’ve been in lockdown during various things including the Music Over Distance compilation which I’ve added details of in a separate post below. I think it is fair to say that any re-arranged shows won’t be happening for a very long time so we’d better forget all about that.
As you might imagine new music is being made and with everyone twiddling their thumbs, there are lots of collaborations on whatever will become the next The Declining Winter album. It sounds so far like one of those schizophrenic, anything goes LPs but who knows what it will end up like as it’s currently lying in bits and pieces all over the studio floor. In the meantime we made a 4 track sampler on Bandcamp with two new The Declining Winter songs, and one each from Memory Drawings and Western Edges. One of the Declining Winter songs is a rough sketch of something from the next LP, the other Occupying the Blanks is from an 8” lathe cut that was to be sold on the aforementioned tour but instead is stuck somewhere at the pressing plant. If it ever sees the light of day we’ll try to let you know.
Anyway here you go -it’s FREE to download and please do follow us on Bandcamp
Stay safe everyone despite what our Prime Minister says.
