Overdue Update!

You'll have to excuse me, I forget this CG blog thing is here sometimes and always forget to update it!

If you want up to date er... updates best place to check is our facebook at


otherwise, here's a bit of an update on what's been happening so far this year:

We have a new release! Five Songs is an EP/Mini-Album (it's just over 30mins long). It's out on April 8th 2016 on 12" LP, CD and Digital Download. It can be found over at our bandcamp page here: https://witheredhandrecords.bandcamp.com/album/five-songs and all good record record shops/download sites.

Also, we're playing the legendary Roadburn festival in Tilburg, The Netherlands on Saturday April 16th - on the Extase stage at about 8:40pm. Very exciting!

BACK FROM THE DEAD (or a rest at least)...

Long time since we posted here! Currently on a short hiatus for the rest of 2015, while Guitarist John gets to grips with being a new daddy and the rest of us get on with normal life.

During this 'quiet' year for us we've finished recording our new EP which will see the light of day early 2016, along with a batch of absolutely cracking gigs to support it.

So rest assured, we are still here!

See you in 2016!

Howdy all!

After a long time coming it's actually here, Crumbling Ghost II is now available from Withered Hand Records bandcamp page ahead of its official 'shop' release date of the 15th July.

Also, great to hear the opening track 'The Good Old Way' on Tom Ravenscroft's 6 Music show tonight and hear all the good things people have been saying about it.

It's been a long time coming but we're there at last! Our second album 'II' is currently being pressed and has a release date of July 15th 2013.

Five very happy Crumblies here!

It's being released again through Withered Hand Records and will be a lovely gatefold digipack with an 8 page booklet full of Lyrics and John's extensive liner notes.

WHR will be doing early bird orders so you can get your hands on it before the official release date, your best bet is to join us on facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/crumblingghost  or keep checking back at the WHR website for more news on that. Early bird orders should be going live around mid/late June though.

Oh and here's a reveal of the cover artwork, again done by our very talented friend Hannah Cheesbrough:

Until next time!

Well good afternoon!

Just a quick update as we come to the end of the year. We may have seemed a bit quiet in 2012, but we've been busy beavering away behind the scenes desperately trying to get the new album finished and out there. As you can guess, it's not going to happen this year but all being well we're looking at March/April 2013. At present it just needs artwork (which our friend Hannah is hard at work at), mastering and the cash to get them pressed (as we're self releasing again via Withered Hand Records). But we're saving our pennies and keeping our fingers crossed for a spring release.

Hello There!

We have a couple of gigs coming up!

25th August - Brixton Windmill, London (facebook)
27th October - Camden Black Heart, London (facebook)

This week we're back in action after a little summer hiatus. We've two practices, two days mixing/recording AND the gig in Brixton all in the space of four days. I know I say this every time, but after this weekend we'll hopefully be a step closer to the album coming out! At this point it seems likely that we will self release again via my label Withered Hand Records and fingers crossed it will see light of day this year. Why is it taking so long? Well we got a bit adventurous and maybe tried to cram a bit too much in to our short recording sessions. This means we've had to go back a couple of times and tweak things as and when we can afford (which isn't often!). But yes hopefully we're near the end now!

Until next time!

Ahoy there!

Thought I'd throw an update out there as we've been a bit quiet recently. We're still going strong, though we're now a 'distance' band (John is living in Newcastle, while the rest of us are still in Laaahnndann) so things have slowed down a tad.

That said, work is progressing nicely on the second album. The recording sessions are split in two (similar to the first album). The first session we did last year at One Cat in Brixton, the second we did earlier this year at Holy Mountain in Hackney. The Holy Mountain session is now complete with all the tweaks were finished last weekend. Hopefully we're back at One Cat in August to tweak the first session. Then it's just mastering to go! So fingers crossed it will still be out this year. If we can't find anyone to release it, we'll just do ourselves again through Withered Hand Records.

We've got two great gigs in the pipeline - both in London (we've failed in our attempts to get gigs anywhere else! - but we're working on that). I'll put up details when everything's set in stone.

Last but not least, we did a great little interview recently with Sonic Escapes that you can find HERE
