Hello all,

We’ve done a new video with our friends at AshTV. It’s called Misery, and it goes a little something like this:

Please watch it and spread it around if you do that kind of thing. You know the drill, we’re utterly DIY and need all the help we can get. Etc.

Plus, our Pledge campaign ends this Friday:

There’s already been a bunch of videos from the studio, as well as a four-track Yorkshire covers EP and a taster EP from the accompanying album Rarities, which is full of unreleased stuff from our decade of being a band. Coming soon(ish) is a Live EP and some Q&A vids.

I’m no good at the hard sell, and it’s not really our style, but if you like this kind of thing, and you like supporting DIY underground music, you could do worse than getting involved in our Pledge campaign.

Oh, and 10% of what we make is going towards our friend Scott Sorry’s medical fees fund. Scott was the bass player in Amen, The Wildhearts and Sorry and The Sinatras, and he’s recently been battling a brain tumour. Because he lives in America, his medical fees have been astronomical, so lots of people are helping him raise some cash to pay for that, and to pay for lost earnings. Scott’s one of the good ones, so we’re helping him out too.

Cheers all,


Hello all,

Our new album VICTORIES is here.

You can download it NOW at the PledgeMusic site.

CDs and so on will be winging their way to you in the next couple of weeks.

The RARITIES albums will be online next week, too.

You can find the lyrics here.

It’s our biggest and best album yet – we constantly push ourselves in terms of playing, songwriting, performance, sonics, artwork, everything, really, and we honestly feel it’s a big step up for us, as we have every album we’ve done. We really hope you love it.

That’s it. Thanks as ever for your support.

Hello all,

We just wanted to give you all a quick update on how we are getting on.

Work continues frantically on our new album VICTORIES, which obviously we are going to say is our best yet. But we think it is. Again. Why would we do it unless we wanted to constantly beat what we did last time?!

We’re knee-deep mixing the thing at the moment, which, as ever, is a gargantuan task, but it’s going really well and we’re really pleased at what is coming out of the speakers.

The Pledge campaign is cracking on successfully as well. We hit 100% of our target on the launch night (again – thank you lot, a LOT), and pledgesters so far have had half an hour of update videos on how we’re getting on in the studio, with tons of behind-the-scenes footage with clips of the new tracks and information about our pants. Next week, we’re putting out a sampler EP of the RARITIES material, which we think you’re going to love.

If you have like-minded music obsessive pals, please share the Pledge campaign and tell your friends about it. We have a message to spread and we feel it’s spreading, and the more the merrier, so now is a good time to share.

We’re still on course to have the album in your ears at the end of Feb/start of March (preliminary listening party date – Thursday 1st March) and in your homes by the end of March/start of April.

News update over… back to the studio (via the kettle).

VICTORIES #eureka5

Eureka Machines, December 2017

Hello everyone, and welcome to 2018. We’ve launched our latest Pledge campaign, and it promises to be the best yet. The new album is called ‘Victories’ and we are recording it right now. It’s sounding monstrous. The plan with this one was to strip it back a bit and try make it sound a bit more like the live experience. Four people in a room at maximum volume. And it’s sort of working so far. Obviously some bells and whistles are being thrown in the mix.

You can pledge here:

We’re also releasing a double-disc compilation called ‘Rarities’, to celebrate TEN YEARS of being a band. Who would have thought it?! This has one disc full of songs we recorded for albums and pledgers that never quite made the album, generally due to us not having enough time to get them finished. And another disc with all the covers we’ve ever recorded. Some of which you’ve heard, some of which you haven’t. So we’ve finished them all, had them remastered, and they are sounding great too. It’s the first time any of this has been made available on CD, and is strictly limited to 1000 copies so don’t hang about.

Finally, we are donating 10% of EVERYTHING to our friend Scott Sorry‘s medical fund. Scott was recently diagnosed with a brain tumour. He lives in America, so his medical bills are through the roof, and because the tumour is affecting his motor abilities, he is unable to work at the moment. Scott is one of our favourite people and we think we should support our own, so we’re giving a slice of everything to him. It’s the right thing to do.

As ever, there’s a bunch of PLEDGE EXCLUSIVE bits and bobs, starting right away with a free Yorkshire Covers EP, where we cover four of our favourite bands from round our way. Who is on there? You’ll have to pledge to find out. We’ve also a bunch of videos from the studio, live tracks and plenty more, to make sure you Pledgesters are repaid for your support.

The album will be released digitally at the start of March (with the now-customary listening party – date TBA) and you should have the hard copies in your mitts by the end of March.

Finally, we rely on you guys to spread the word about what we are doing as much as possible, so please share and share alike – the more people we get along to the party, the merrier. We genuinely believe we have a good and positive message to share with the world and so the more like-minded pals you can get on board, the better.

Thank you as ever for your support! We can’t wait for you to hear these tunes. I would like to describe it as ‘the sound of a band striking the exact sweet spot between giving a fuck and not giving a fuck’.

Your humble servants,
Chris, Wayne, Davros and Pete
