WSL cover packshot

We’ve been saying there would be some news soon on the Titanic tracks we performed in Belfast in May for quite some time now, and we’ve finally got all the pieces in place to make ‘soon’ into ‘now’ after releasing a trailer online last week..

Recorded at The Pool and mixed chez Willgoose over the spring and early summer, White Star Liner EP features the four new tracks commissioned by the BBC for their Biggest Weekend as studio recordings.

It’s our first EP of new material since The War Room back in 2012, and we hope you’ll all like it. It will be released on CD and via the usual digital and streaming outlets on Friday 26 October 2018, with the vinyl following on Friday 7th December. You can pre-order it now from a selection of retailers, or head to the website of your favourite independent record shop and they should have it available to order.

For those who didn’t catch the Biggest Weekend set, the tracks span the building of the Titanic, its launch, the distress call and sinking of the ship and, finally, the discovery of the wreck in 1985.

The eponymous lead single premiered last night on Steve Lamacq’s BBC 6Music show in the UK
