Turn Out The Lights

We’ve just released the next live session video from our trip to Mount Street Studios. The guys at Mount Street were awesome, pretty much giving us full reign over the live rooms at the studio and helped with everything from lighting to positioning to overall sound quality to make sure the videos came out as best they could.

Lyrically this track deals with the fight, flight or freeze reaction to danger and the anxiety that those situations can bring. “I’m like the breeze between the earth and the trees” – the feeling of being less rooted and connected than other friends in social situations, breezing through the evenings being introverted.

Mental health is an important issue for us as a band as has a consistent theme throughout the new album. It can be a hard thing to talk about but it’s something that people should feel comfortable discussing.

Between The Earth And The Trees

We’ve been holding out on this news for a little while, but we’re delighted to now say that our debut-album ‘Between The Earth And The Trees’ is due out for release on Friday 3rd May via Undead Collective Records.

We recorded the album last year at Stakeout Studios, London with the incredibly talented Jason Wilson (Dinosaur Pile-Up, Fightstar, Reuben) and we can’t wait to share the results with you all. Jason put us through our paces and really pushed us to create something we can all come away from feeling incredibly proud.

Also, we want to say a massive thanks to everyone who has helped and supported us along the way. We love you. For now, you can see the live session of ‘Hold The Waves’ we recorded at Mount Street Studios last year…

Merrick’s Tusk On Tour

Back in 2016 we hit the road around Europe, joined by Alex Withers who documented our travels around Germany, Czech Republic, Poland, The Netherlands and Luxembourg.

As well as meeting some awesome new people we had the chance to experience the incredible hospitality of our European hosts and play with some ace bands.

Part one of our tour diary is available above – if it’s not too harrowing, you can check out parts 2 & 3 over on our YouTube channel.
