DARK FLOWERS NEWS! New EP Arriving March 19th – FULL Album To Follow Later…

The Dark Flowers (aka Paul Statham and friends) are set to release material in a few weeks time, featuring guest vocalists that we know and love.

First to launch will be E.P. “Death and Desire”, released on March 19th and featuring guest vocal performances from Gabriella Cilmi, Shelly Poole and our very own Anchoress. Lead track off the E.P. is titled Death Valley 69 and features David J and Char on vocals.

Even more exciting news, still, will be a follow up release of a full album by Dark Flowers later in the year called Indian Summer, which again features The Anchoress on guest vocals as well as FOUR TRACKS with Jim on vocal duties!

I nearly wet myself when I read this!

Paul was extremely kind to allow me to hear one song some time back which features both Jim and Catherine in a duet and it is wonderful. I will say no more! My lips are SEALED! But to say I am excited by the news of this album’s imminent release would be somewhat of an understatement! I am doing all I can to remain composed enough to type out this post. Lol. It’s probably riddled with mistakes as a result.

You can read lots more info on The Dark Flowers HERE and find links to pre-save the E.P. for streaming upon release date.

Happy days!

The Dark Flowers – When Stars Fall EP

It was 2013 when The Dark Flowers project came into being (perhaps 2012…this EP is labelled as being released in 2012). The mastermind behind it was Paul Statham. A beautiful collection of music and he got together some amazing collaborators for the project…Jim and Catherine being two of them (and consequently how Catherine ended up involved with Simple Minds…from my understanding).

I have been enjoying listening to these collections for some time on Spotify but I really wanted to get me a copy of the EP as This Boy’s Life and Night Is The New Day are my faves of the tracks Jim did. I thought I would have to source a copy from eBay or Discogs due to the time that had elapsed since release. 

I searched the web via Google and to my utter surprise, the EP was being sold as a CD on bandcamp. It was on a limited edition run of 200 and AMAZINGLY there were still 18 copies left!! I secured a copy in the early hours of this morning. I am SO looking forward to having this! Cannot wait! Now to just get me a copy of Radioland (which I still need to do) and all will be good :-))
