Navigate The Blood - an opera by Admiral Fallow & Gareth Williams

Now for something completely different!

In partnership with NOISe, Admiral Fallow have made an opera! Navigate The Blood is a new work co-written with composer Gareth Williams and librettist Sian Evans. We’ve been working away on it for some months now and are about to embark on the final week of rehearsals, before touring begins on 2nd November. The Glasgow performances are sold out, but you can catch us at a number of unusual venues (mostly distilleries…) around Scotland until the end of November.

You Tell Me

I'm very happy to be able to say that You Tell Me - my collaboration with Field Music's Peter Brewis - has a new song out now! Clarion Call is available to listen and buy digitally here, and there's a limited edition 7" pre-order link here.

A big thank you to Marc Riley for playing the song on his BBC Radio 6 Music show on Wednesday night. Listen again from 18 minutes in...

We'll also be heading out to play some gigs in October. Hope to see you there!
