If you’ve seen MV live in the last couple of years you’ll probably know this one. It’s for all the people who’ve shown mega-patience while I got my act together over the last year. Thank You.

next wednesday i’m going to post a song from the record that i’ve been working on for the last few months.

yo!

sorry you haven’t heard from us for a while, we’re currently knee deep in making the first monument valley lp. we’re expecting to have something for you to hear early in the new year, and really looking forward to inflicting it on the world.

in the meantime, with winter/christmas in mind, we’ve made a few monument valley beanies. as modeled below by our friend O.B., they’re black, one size, with a white MV logo embroidered on the front. we’ve only made a few, so if you want one head on over to the shop. also, we’ve hardly got any copies of the tongues ep/book left now, so if you’ve been planning on getting one of those now is probably the time. if there’s any other monument valley merch you’d like to see let us know on email, or hit up Ned on twitter.

finally, here’s a couple of things we’ve been listening to while making the record. in no particular order: this, this, this, this, and this.

big love

June 29th – Blissfields Festival, Hampshire TICKETS

July 8th – Barn on the Farm, Gloucestershire: TICKETS

Next MV single Your Cover Blown will be released on Everybody’s Stalking on May 14th 2012. It will be released on very limited 7″ vinyl and electronically. If you would like to pre-order the vinyl click here, and to pre-order the digital track click here.

Each vinyl ordered directly from Everybody’s Stalking will come with a disposable one-shot camera and a set of instructions. Once you’ve taken a photo, send it in to Everybody’s Stalking, who will develop the film. All of the pictures will then be collated for a special event/release later in the year. These cameras are super limited, so if you’re interested be quick.

After the headline shows in March, MV is out again across April and May supporting first Boy and Bear, and then Karima Francis. We’re also doing a free cafe show in London to celebrate the launch of the single at a lovely place called Gallery Cafe in Bethnal Green. Dates and ticket links are on the shows page.
