Christmas Coal Gifts

Our gig we hosted in Sunderland went down a storm - thanks for Holy Mammoth, Nick and The Lake Poets for making it special.

As a thankyou for all your support this year we've created a live video of a new song, Eight Hours from our rehearsal space in the miners hall. We've uploaded it to vimeo and sent the link to all our twitter followers, facebook followers and everyone on our mailing list.
