ALL THINGS NEW! Christmas Album Launch

Save the Date!: 15th December 2013

We are very proud to announce our plans for Advent and Christmas 2013 and our forthcoming alternative Christmas album ALL THINGS NEW! in collaboration with A Deer For Your Lamb and Alex Ross.

Inspired by the likes of Sufjan Stevens, Slow Club and Bright Eyes, ALL THINGS NEW! is a collaborative project between A Deer For Your Lamb, Alex Ross and the Holy Biscuit. It brings together North East artists to create an alternative Christmas album - celebrating, deconstructing and reinterpreting Christmas music. 

Produced by North East musician and producer Alex Ross, the album brings together a variety of North East musicians. The album will be recorded at The Holy Biscuit in November and feature work by artists such as Meghann ClancyAURORACath and Phil Tyler, Sacred Harp singers, Rington, The Sons of Encouragement and others who are to be confirmed.

The album will be available to download just in time for Christmas and will be launched at a celebratory mini festival at the Holy Biscuit on Sunday 15th December. The album will be available to buy in the form of a download code, accompanied by original screen printed artwork by local printmaker Sarah Ingledew.

As part of the run up to the event, we are running a Kickstarter campaign.The money raised by this campaign will contribute to recording and production costs of the music and the production of the original screen-printed artwork to accompany the album download code. It will also enable all of the money raised from the sale of the album to go directly to the artists involved helping them to continue their creative practice contributing to the variety of awesome projects going on in the North East. BE PART OF IT!
We've created a blog inspired by the project to gather up different thoughts on the process and have different people contribute reflections and ideas. ALL THINGS NEW! will be available to listen to and purchase online, giving even more people the chance to engage with alternative takes on traditional songs. Be part of it!
The launch party, held at the Holy Biscuit on 15th December, will be a massive Christmas celebration where we welcome people into the gallery for an evening of music, art, food and drink. Each artist/band will perform their song from the EP along with a short set. There will be food available and it will be BYOB. SAVE THE DATE!
