Andrew’s New Album

Andrew has made a follow up to his 2017 solo album. ‘Somewhere To Be’ was recorded in July at Dropkick HQ and features 10 songs written during various points over the last decade. Once again, it has been recorded and performed by Andrew but, this time, features the added bonus of Pedal Steel Guitar from Iain Sloan (The Wynntown Marshals). The album will be released by Rock Indiana Records as a CD digipak, as well as being available at the usual streaming and download sites from 27th September. You can pre-order it here now.

The CD features original artwork by Andy Bertrand.

The Boys With The Perpetual Nervousness

Andrew’s collaboration with Spanish musician, Gonzalo Marcos, from the band El Palacio de Linares will perform their debut gig in Madrid on Saturday 12th October in Fotomaton. You can get tickets here. The fantastic UK band, The Roves, will be playing too, alongside our friend from the Scottish Highlands, Mr Still.

The Boys With The Perpetual Nervousness album, ‘Dead Calm’, was released on 1st March via Pretty Olivia Records on vinyl. As it sold out extremely quickly, a CD version is now available, alongside the usual streaming and download options. You can order it from our shop.

Here is the video for a song from the album, Close the Doors.

New Dropkick-related Side Project

Andrew has been involved in a new collaboration with a Spanish musician from the band El Palacio de Linares.

The project is called ‘The Boys with the Perpetual Nervousness‘ and the album is titled “Dead Calm” and is released on 1st March. Here is the video for a song from the album, Close the Doors.

After a 7″ single last year, Andrew and Gonzalo decided to get together again and quickly recorded the album, “Dead Calm”. It was all essentially recorded in one session in Madrid and one in Edinburgh, with songs written hours before recording. Gonzalo Marcos plays drums and writes lyrics with Andrew singing/playing instruments and writing the music/melodies. It comes out on Pretty Olivia Records on Vinyl and Download on 1st March. All other digital sites on 8th March. At this stage, there is no plan to release a CD version of the album. You can pre-order it from our shop or, alternatively, get the vinyl directly from Pretty Olivia Records here.
