The wait is over! Matilda’s Scoundrels debut album is here. Formed in 2014, Matilda’s Scoundrels are a six piece folk punk unit from Hastings. They’ve been building a solid reputation up and down the country over the past year and supporting the likes of The Levellers, Ferocious Dog, The Mahones, The Rumjacks and The Goddamn Gallows.
Blending traditional punk instruments with accordion, mandolin, tin whistle and gravelly vocals makes for an exciting mix of music which has had hundreds of bodies moving, feet tapping and beer flowing.
Their album ‘As The Tide Turns’ is out on 8 September on Vinyl and CD through TNSRecords. We also have an exclusive pre-order t-shirt available. The first 25 pre-order will receive a limited edition mailer spray painted and screen printed by the band.
This is what the band had to say about the album. “As The Tide Turns has been a labor of love for all of us as a band for over 8 months from initially recording it to getting it all finished and we couldn’t be happier with what we managed to achieve. This album offers a few party tunes to get you in the mood for drinking with your mates but it also offers so much more with us having written about our experiences in the Calais Jungle through to protest songs inspired by people marching against all manner of issues to the massive injustices being experienced the world over by privatised penal systems and so much more.
It’s an album we feel is about the times we live in right now and about the opportunity to change the direction that all this crazy shit is going into a positive future which is what inspired the album name which itself we felt was the feel of the album from the songs we have written for it over the last 2 years. We hope you all enjoy it as much as we did writing it all and we can’t wait for you all to hear it!”
