The Hayling Island Sessions -
In August this year, the band teamed up with the RNLI to convert the Hayling Island lifeboat station on the south coast into a recording studio for their latest release. Recording the guitars in amongst the lifeboats with the crackle of emergency radio, the drums in the crew room among the life jackets and rescue equipment, and the keyboards out on the slipway by the beach, the band also embarked on a field recording session to collect samples for the new recordings and images for the artwork.
