Live Studio Video

Greetings!

One day last summer the folks from Trout Records (http://troutrecords.wordpress.com/) invited us to record and film a live track in their brand new small portable ac’s Asylum Studios. We played the first track from our last album, ‘Drumhunter’. Here it is!

Live Videos!

Hey folks,

At our Button Factory gig in July, we were fortunate to have Bold Puppy come and film the proceedings. Here are two tracks from the gig, ‘Hug The Blood’ & ‘Drip Pools’ (Both from our last album ‘Boa Howl’). You can watch them on any phone or computer, which you can also use for catch up with the latest OW news for avid gamers!

Tanager Peak Video

Here’s the video for Tanager Peak!

It was made by Conor O'Toole and Simon Mulholland, who did an awesome job, so mega-thanks to them.

Tanager Peak is taken from our latest album Boa Howl. You can listen to it and order CDs and Vinyl at www.boahowl.com.

Vinyl!

The Vinyl have finally arrived! Looking great so they are… One thing: due to an unavoidable factory error the first pressings will have 3 hairlines on the empty/blank part of the etched D side (there is no music or design on there so it’s all good). Etching is a mad process but we’ll have this solved for the repress (we’re told). So basically the ones out next week are crazy limited edition, yeh? Hope you all enjoy.

April 2012

Well well well…

Once again I have to start with an apology for keeping this blog dusty- Since the last time I wrote here we toured, recorded a live album (which you can see below) and mostly have just wrote new songs. The skeleton for our second record is forming slowly but surely. We have booked our studio for late summer and we’ll see how that goes. I’m going to try and keep this regular, I swear. Keep an eye out for our new web shop which will  be online at the end of the week (we’ll have very limited amounts of the live album). Be Good.

‘Darling, you’ll meet your maker’ (live)
