Ladies and Gentlemen and Gazorpians,
It is with great pleasure that I, Benjamin Marwood, announce at last my third full-length album, herein referred to as Get Found.
Get Found is out on 7th April 2017 on CD/download via the good people at Xtra Mile Recordings, who continue to put up with my shit.
Get Found has thirteen songs on it, and at forty minutes long is at the absolute maximum of my musical attention span:
1. Punched In The Mouth (Part 1)
2. The Church Of No Commandments
3. In Black and White
7. I'm Wide Awake It's Boring
9. Baby You're A Mess
10. Bury Me In The Pantheon
11. Kick Out Kick On
12. The Devil Makes Work For Jazz Hands
13. Friends, Close
All songs were written by me, except for Baby You're A Mess which was written (and initially recorded and released) by Tom Crook/Band of Hope. Naturally, the one I didn't write turned out to be the best one and you can hear it on Soundcloud right now:
You can order stuff right over here:

I have various things to say surrounding the writing and recording of this album but that's for another day or maybe never (or, at least, for the liner notes). Suffice to say, I'm incredibly proud of this album and what it represents - so much so, that I'm actually going to try and take to the road for the first time in three years:
Thursday 6th BRIGHTON Brunswick*
Friday 7th LONDON Camden Monarch*
Saturday 8th PORTSMOUTH Southsea Sound*
Monday 10th BRISTOL Crofters Rights*
Tuesday 11th NOTTINGHAM Bodega*
Wednesday 12th YORK Fulford Arms*
Friday 14th EDINBURGH Opium
Saturday 15th GLASGOW Hug and Pint
Sunday 16th MANCHESTER Gullivers*
All dates are with Non Canon
*dates are with Helen Chambers too
Tickets are hopefully available already, from wherever places normally do tickets.
Thanks massively to the XMR gang and to Barry Dolan for getting the record & tour off the ground.
Hitting publish on this post and actually telling people about it marks the end of a long road for me, though hopefully not the kind of road that your sat nav guides you down, swearing blind that this is the way to Leeds and all of a sudden you're in the sea. Hopefully at the end of this long road, there'll be ice cream.
To ice cream,
