Album Release + Spring Dates 2012

The Penguins Are Here!

Release The Penguins

After years of waddling around the polar ice packs of South Birmingham, we thought it was about time to carry out our annual threat to release a new album. So we’re very very happy to bring word that our new album (and first as TG Collective) – Release The Penguins – will be, err, released on May 28th, distributed in the UK by Proper Distribution. You can listen to the title track below, with the cover artwork by the splendid paper-cutting artist Suzy Taylor. You can also pre-order from Amazon here.

We’ll be posting links for pre-orders and downloads through Amazon, iTunes, Bandcamp etc in the next couple of weeks (and please help support your local record store by ordering from there). Albums will be dispatched to the lovely people who pre-ordered in mid April (before the price of stamps go up!)

We’re also making a new little video in April, so if you hop over and befriend our Facebook and Twitter pages, we’ll let you know when it’s online, plus we’ll be giving away a couple of signed albums.

Playing live – we return to Pizza Express Jazz Club in Soho this coming Monday, before heading to the Cheltenham Jazz Festival, back to London and Boisdale in Canary Wharf (recorded for JazzFM), followed by a Birmingham gig at the home of the notorious honey vodka, The Polish Club, all in May …
