Some exciting news! 

We're bouncing and twitching with excitement to announce the upcoming release of our new E.P. 'Can't Sit Straight'! This one's Fidget and the Twitchers as you've never heard us before, exploring new grooves, melding balkan and swing influences, and taking the next step in our spicy skapunk exploration. It's our heaviest record yet.

When we released our debut album ‘Full Steam Ahead’ we were stunned by your support, which allowed us to play tons of gigs and shake our stuff on festival stages countrywide! You, who listened to and shared our music, bought our merch, came to our shows and warned your gran about us, have contributed to this. We can't thank you enough!

Since then we've added 2 new members, 5 new instruments,  and written our best tunes to date, so we're humungously excited to get our full sound down in the musical history books and show the world what Fidget and the Twitchers are really about. Unfortunately, we’ve spent all our pennies saved up from gigging on recording this tasty sound lasagne, and we can’t afford to finish mixing and producing the E.P. This is why we need your help, we're hoping to match our contribution of £1500 which will enable us to get this thing out there.

We wish money never had to come into music making, but it's currently very difficult for us to keep momentum as a band without assistance as we fund everything we do from our day jobs and we’re scraping the bottom of the barrel. Although we try to do as much ourselves as possible - handmaking all our merch, paying for rehearsal spaces from our wages and promoting our own music, being a skapunk band with 1700000 members in the current climate means gig fees often barely cover feeding and transporting our marauding troupe.

We're really excited about the music we're bringing you and we think you'll love what we've created, ably wrangled into existence by our talented pal Pete at MacBeth Studios. Please donate if you can, or you can use this crowdfunder as a way to pre-order the E.P which will allow us to cover the costs of producing it. If you'd be buying the E.P anyway, please order it here to help us make it a reality and you’ll receive it a week early. If you're able to contribute then please take a gander at the other rewards we've put together - we'll be eternally grateful.

Here’s how your generosity will make a difference:

Funding the mixing and mastering of the E.P £700
Producing 100 CDs £480
E.P. Artworks - £200
A music video for our upcoming single £250

Any monies remaining after that will go towards producing merch to go along with the E.P. We need this to stay afloat and do things like book gigs in other parts of the UK / invest in new merch ideas (anyone else not know where to store their 1000th band T-shirt?!). Whatever you can donate will be immensely appreciated, and crucially will help us to pay our collaborating artists as much as they deserve as well as continue band activities.

Here's a peek at our new t-shirt, stay tuned for new designs!
