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!
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!

Our good friend Guy Andrews has done a remix of our song ‘Drumhunter’, and it’s awesome, so it is. Take a listen, and download it for free!
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.
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.
We’re delighted to announce that we’ll be releasing our new album, titled ‘Boa Howl’ on the 5th of July. You can pre-order it on vinyl, CD or digital at www.boahowl.com.
As a taster, we’ve released the opening track ‘Drumhunter’ (below).
We’ll also be playing gigs throughout the summer, check out our tour page for details.
Things will be happening again…watch this space (or the other spaces).
It’s been quiet for a while on the Halves-front hasn’t it?? Well rest assured reader we have spent all of 2012 working like fiends getting a new full lengthed album ready and it’s almost completed. More info down the line of course, but for now, be safe in the knowledge that we havent disappeared. Booking shows and finishing mixing…
(This blog gets neglected often so catch us on twitter (@halvesband) and facebook.com/ahomeforhalves)
You can listen to a song from the vinyl over on soundcloud. New web shop opening in the next couple of days (we’ll have some copies of the vinyl there so act fast).
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 willÂ be online at the end of the week (we’ll have very limited amounts of the live album). Be Good.
