The Explorers Club: Antarctica Album

Here it is! We've spent quite a while on this one - we played the songs from Bayly's Beach to Milford Sound, we drew pictures and we told stories and we went into the studio and we banged it out live in two and a half days, Emily made amazing cover art and our friends at Banished From The Universe are releasing it for us today.

Album cover by Emily Cater

The Explorers Club: Antarctica - nine songs telling the stories of the Heroic Age of Antarctic Exploration.  It's out in the world today and you can download it from our bandcamp page, you can buy it from community record stores, or you can come and see us somewhere round the country over the next five and a half weeks and we'll gladly sell it to you in person.

And here is a new video for you as well - the images from the show, taken by Scott and Ponting on the ice over a hundred years ago, along with the song 'Great God! This Is An Awful Place.'
