The release of the band’s new Dead Men’s Clothes EP is almost upon us: we’re just waiting for the discs to come back from the presses, but we simply couldn’t wait to share our doubtful genius with you all. So here’s a preview of the opening track on the EP – ‘The Hermit’. Hope you enjoy it, please feel free to share social media etc.
In fact we’ve been suitably impressed by the number of you who’ve been in touch asking when the EP will be available to buy. It’s at the presses right now, and we hope to be able to ship physical copies in a matter of weeks.
If you cannot wait to get your mitts on a CD or vinyl copy, then the entire EP will be available on digital download even sooner – keep checking here or follow us on Facebook / Twitter for announcements!
As it’s the festive season, it was decided we should attempt to record a yuletide number to share with our friends around the world.
So here’s our Christmas card to you all – our very own arrangement of the traditional carol God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen:
This was recorded at the last Phantom Cowboys rehearsal of 2015 in about 20 minutes, using tracks recorded by a phone and a mac using the onboard mic! We managed to splice the tracks together to miraculously create what you can hear here.
So don’t be too judgemental – it’s just a bit of festive fun! (You might be able to guess that we didn’t waste time looking up the lyrics either).
Finally , a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all our friends and supporters around the world. We look forward to seeing you all in 2016!
Rob, Megz, The Serpent & Lord Emsworth.
