The Fierce And The Dead – If It Carries On Like This We Are Moving To Morecambe (remastered) – released by Bad Elephant Music on 18th November 2016

Originally released in 2016, the album has been remastered with five bonus tracks, and is presented in Digipak format for the first time. The release also features all new artwork by celebrated artist Mark Buckingham.

…Morecambe represents the first flowering of The Fierce And The Dead’s signature sound, and displays both the immediacy of their music and a promise of what was to come.

Guitarist Matt Stevens says: “We’re really pleased to get this opportunity to release a definitive version of the first Fierce And The Dead album – we’re still really proud of it. It’s nice to get an opportunity to go back to  remaster it, sort out the packaging and put some previously unreleased tunes on there. Mark Buckingham’s brand new art is really special and the opportunity to work with one of our favourite artists is a massive deal for all of us. I’m really pleased to be able to release it in partnership with our friends at BEM.”

“It was a really exciting time making this album”, adds bassist and producer Kev Feazey, “and I hope this reissue and the extra tracks will show that. This was  where we started thinking that TFATD might be an actual band, and I’m happy that it is getting a new lease of life.”

The Fierce And The Dead are currently writing for their third album, as yet untitled. Two festival appearances have already been lined up for 2017 – RoSFest in the USA on 7th May, and the New Day Festival in Kent over the weekeour in 26th August.
