P45 to launch eagerly-anticipated album in Stanford
7:20am Friday 22nd February 2013 in News
THE ENERGETIC p45 are bringing their own style of 21st century Ska to an unmissable album launch party.
The band have been working on their debut studio album, Stories to be Told for the past year and are planning a monumental knees-up at the Old Ballroom, in Stanford-le-Hope, on Saturday, February 23.
From 7pm, the five-piece will welcome their fans with champagne and a buffet then entertain with tracks from the long-awaited album with some help from special guests.
Paul Davis, one of the five-strong team behind the band’s record label 54-46 Records, said their previous two singles, Cold Shivers and Top Floor, both made it into the top 10 of the iTunes reggae charts.
He said: “Over the last year everybody has been asking where the album is. “We have been working our socks off in the studio and it is all original – we spent a year on it.
“We have supported some big people over the last year and we are doing a huge launch.”
The band, which formed two-and-a-half years ago, has also supported the Karis May Darling Foundation, a charity set up to help children achieve their aspirations through performing arts and sport in memory of the well-loved Corringham youngster.
Stories to be Told is all original music written by bass player Rob Sigston and performed by singer Jack Kendall, lead guitarist Neil Reed, saxaphone player Joe “the lips” Green and drummer Dustin Burgess.
Limited tickets for the album launch party are available by calling Paul on 07951 483248. The dress code is West End Style.
