New release by the History of Gunpowder!

I had the immense pleasure of playing several saxophones and clarinet on the latest album by History of Gunpowder, and now you can have the immense pleasure of listening to it! Alex Morison wrote some fantastic material for this and I think the final product is something really special.

Stream it here or on your favourite streaming service!
