I don’t know who did this ‘Evolution of Ska’ infographic, but it’s awesome. 
If it was you, let me know and I can credit you! #operationboombox

Had the best night last night, playing superhero buddies for the new Lionface video! Much love and inspiration.

Guys! Girls!! Non-Pledgers!!! The Boom still needs your help. If you want full access to the archive of new album demos, videos and updates on PledgeMusic, you simply need to come and invest at least £5 into the fund (for which you’ll get all the updates, demos and the advance mixtape in advance of the album). ‪#‎operationboombox‬

Neil ‘Pablo Charlie’ McMinn featuring on our new track. Definitely a B-Side. #operationboombox (at Vale Studios)

Today, after public demand, we’re releasing to the Pledgers the demo of ‘Drop The Bass (And Pick It Up) from our home sessions, which is the same arrangement we’ve been playing live. We recorded the studio version of the track yesterday at Vale Studios and took the song in a more hip-hop / jungle direction in terms of drum loops so it’s going to be really interesting for you guys to hear this version in advance of the album.  I also want to give props to Rob DenBleyker who writes the Cyanide and Happiness on Explosm.net. The attached image was the inspiration for the track!  Again, please let us know what you think of this one and any suggestions you have for the finished track are very welcome….#operationboombox #theboomneedsyou

Oh hell, we’ve finally let James have some distortion on the guitar and look what happened. #operationboombox

Yesterday we recorded the lion’s share of our new reggae summer jam ‘Train Leaves Tomorrow’. I thought I’d document its creation especially for the Pledgers. Not only are you treated to videos of the song’s drums, bass, guitars and vocals, you’re also treated to the comedy stylings of one Neil “Madfish” McMinn, for no added charge. Thanks for watching and please remember to comment! #operationboombox #theboomneedsyou

Listening to the vocal takes on our reggae summer jam ‘Train Leaves Tomorrow’. Sounding bloody cracking, even if we do say so ourselves. #operationboombox
