Next month we’ll be transferring five brand new tracks from our minds onto record. It’s been far too long since our last release, so we’re all very excited about getting in the studio again. We’ll be in the capable hands of Charlie Francis once more, and we can’t blooming wait. I think it’ll sound quite different to anything we’ve done before. Can’t wait for you to hear it.
This seems like an appropriate moment to announce the arrival of some new faces to the H!TP fold over recent months. Here are those faces:
And what wonderful faces they are! Up above is the majestic Francesca Dimech. Francesca has joined us on trumpet. We have persuaded her to make time between playing with The School, Inc.a and Wonderbrass (and probably a load more), as well as performing in a solo capacity as Francesca’s Word Salad. She’s a very busy trumpeter, and for good reason.
The dashing gentleman you see is Josef Prygodzicz. He’ll be playing some guitar, doing some singing and generally helping us make more of a racket. Josef plays in band called Winter Villains who have an album coming out soon and are really rather brilliant. Josef has settled quickly and is already pushing H!TP to places we never dreamed of (as demonstrated in this clip):
