about

This is the album we will submit for the next Voyager to be launched into space. We may place it upon Katie Hopkins’ doorstep in a Bag For Life, light it on fire, ring the doorbell and run off. Should we ever attempt to become big in Japan, we now have a demo tape.

This is the album that is quite literally 10 years in the making. It is strange to think that when the first song on this album was written,
Björn had just turned 11 years old the week before! Most of these songs can be found on our first eight studio albums, but we’ve re-recorded them, to bring you these lovely new and improved versions from our strongest line-up since the band formed in June 2006. Feel free to compare them!

Thanks to everyone who made this album possible. There are many of you. You all know who you are. And that includes YOU reading this now.

CHEERS... see y’all at the bar!

Recorded & Produced by Björn Doonicansson & Scott Doonican Mixed & Mastered by Joel Howe
(except Track 20: Mixed by Maartin Allcock)

A huge shout-out to Joel for his incredible patience and constant quest for perfection on this album. Relax matey, it’s 10 years ‘til Vol. 2018-2028!
