The blurb from their label, Warner Records, goes: “In 2017, following four Gold-selling records and ten years of non-stop touring, the acclaimed Oxford quintet found themselves at a critical juncture. Founder member and bassist Walter Gervers decided to leave, and the process to create a new album involved the band ditching big-name producers and plush studio environments in order to create with minimal interference.

Oxford Mail:

“With Yannis taking the production helm for the first time, not only was a fifth record created, but so was their sixth – combining to form their most ambitious and socially conscious project, a two-part album, Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost.

“The raw and intimate Rip Up The Road captures a group of friends whose regeneration has led to their most challenging yet creative era yet, as they set sail once more against a relentless schedule.

"The result is a documentary that explores the role of bands in our current climate, the extremes of euphoria and isolation linked to touring, and what it takes to retain hunger and inspiration in an often unforgiving industry.”
