About ten years ago Son Of The Mourning, the screamo kings of Manchester, UK, recorded and released the ‘Forest Bank’ CD and then the split CD with My Shining One (from NJ, USA) and became pretty busy sharing stages with Converge, Beecher, Eden Maine, Number One Son, Aconite Thrill, Shaped By Fate and many others. They started to record a full album for us but unfortunately, and as sometimes happens, the band broke up. Now, a decade later, and mainly thanks to Gav Brady, the guitarist and now singer, those tracks have been finished and remixed. The resulting metal-core rifferama is aptly called ‘Eulogy’ and will be released on Engineer records in the next months.
We’ve been listening to the fierce and uncompromising final mixes and have to say this will go down very well with the original fans and anyone into Alexis On Fire, Black Dahlia Murder, Cave-In, Dillinger Escape Plan, Botch, Darkest Hour, Boy Sets Fire and Killswitch Engage.
Wes O’Connor has been working on the fantastic artwork (hit him up on twitter: @sickpatton) and here’s a peek at the cover art.
Trying out tracks from the upcoming album ‘Bigger Than Words’ Steve Hewitt played a set with a full band at the Trinity in Tunbridge Wells last night to a packed house.
He also had a few mates join him onstage for some tracks too and as there were cameras at the show too there will be a video from it soon.
We are very excited to tell you all that a bunch of nothing eventually turned into “A Little Something”, which is the title of Hail Taxi’s latest upcoming release!
This new CD EP will contain five great tracks including the video singles “Magic Spark” and “Wild Rose Country”.
It is acoustic-folk-rock at its finest and the second CD release on Engineer Records conceived by the singer/songwriter, Nathaniel Sutton, under this moniker.
Radios, reviwers and distribution partners can pre-order the CD now, although the official release and launch gigs will be in May, with digital versions of the tracks available in April.
The five A-side all killer no filler tracklist is:
2, Bunch of nothing
3, Magic spark
5, Wild rose country

Hailing from the landscapes of Edmonton, Alberta Canada comes the story of a solo singer / songwriter & performer Nathaniel Sutton. While delivering mostly Folk-based Indie-rock, you’ll find splashes of dynamic Alt/Country, pop and even EDM sensibilities with eclectic influences that parallel elements from other artist-greats like Folk Implosion and Beck. Nathaniel has featured an exclusive track “Far More” through the sought-after compilation series ‘The Emo Diaries’ on Deep Elm Records and now returns to Engineer Records for this solid singalong alt-country release.
Always keeping busy Hail Taxi has a bunch of shows planned and will also be collaborating with Von Bieker, another Canadian singer / songwriter, on February 25th, as part of his live concert series called “Songs From Home”.

Those ever-rocking Scots WeCameFromWolves are working on new tracks and have asked on their facebook page if fans want to come along to the studio and join them in singing some back up vox for a new song.

With less than a month to go until One Day Elliott’s big 20th anniversary charity show, we’re very excited to announce the launch of an extremely limited edition special anniversary T-Shirt.
Our lovely chums at Pins and Knuckles Merchandise have sorted us out with these awesome, gold-print versions of the classic ODE fireball logo shirt.
We’ll be selling these at the show, but if you want to get ahead of the game, or heaven forbid you can’t make it on the night, you can order one directly now.
They’re only a tenner and that includes a donation to the Square Pegs Arts charity too.
(Don’t forget that anyone wearing an ODE shirt to the anniversary show at The Red Lion on 9th March gets in cheaper too!)
