We’d like to say a massive thank you to everyone who came out to see us this tour; from the scary outfits at The Fleece Inn, Boxford to the lovely people at Norden Farm Centre for the Arts, the gorgeous hospitality at The Convent, Stroud the small but perfectly formed audience at Cecil Sharp House, London, our newly found Manchester massive at The Castle Hotel, Manchester the Essex and Bath homecoming gigs at Zinc Arts Centre and Chapel Arts Centre and our new found friends at Winchester Student Union Events. We had soo much fun and really enjoyed playing our new album to you all. If anyone has any photos please post them up! Cheers! xx

Hey everyone! We’ve got a video for a new song ‘Jolly Well Drunk’ plugging away on youtube and Facebook to help promote our new album ‘The Ties That Bind’ which is available for pre-order and immediate download on 16th March 2015. To film this we basically got in a room with some booze and a GoPro and larked about! ENJOY
We’re very happy to report we will be hitting the road in May on a 12 date tour around the country playing out our new album ‘The Ties That Bind’! Woooohooo!
We’re extremely excited about this new album as its been a year in the making, we’ve been playing out the material to audiences for the past year and have really seen each song (yes thats right, song!) grow organically. So click on our gigs page and see if we are coming to a town near you.
We’ll be posting up pictures, videos, competitions and more on this site and our facebook page – http://www.facebook.com/thisismawkin over the next few months too in anticipation of our biggest tour yet.
Please share the gig dates with anyone you might think enjoy us as we really want to play out to as many people as possible – without you its just an expensive rehearsal.
Thanks for all your support!
