Bonus! Half the Devil
Remember back to being a kid, poised in front of the radio with your tape recorder pressed up against the speaker, waiting for your favourite song to play so you could record it and praying that the DJ wouldn't talk his way through the intro this time. We've decided to take the DJ out of the equation as a special Halloween treat and give you our first song in its highest quality, start to finish, no chatting. Half the Devil Written by Conor Stanley, Mike Hellyer, Colin Burstow Mixed, mastered and engineered by Toby Owe
