• Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    Three studio albums into the Wynntown Marshals’ career, the band mark a decade together with the release of a new album entitled “After All These Years”.

    Primarily a retrospective look back at some of the recorded highlights of the past ten years, the 16-track collection also includes 3 new, previously unreleased, tracks which set the scene for the next chapter in the band’s history.

    There’s something for everyone on this collection. Early story songs such as the epic “11:15” (which tells the tale of the greatest flood in modern UK history which took place in rural Aberdeenshire) lock horns with the criminally-overlooked 2009 B-side “The Burning Blue”.

    The reworking of early EP track “Different Drug” (recorded by the current line-up, featuring a sublime extended outro), the country-shuffle of “Snowflake” (possibly the only Americana song about an albino gorilla in existence) and the sprawling, stellar live favourite “Tide” are all wonderful examples of the unique sound that the Marshals have created and honed over the last 10 years.

    The lyrics are never throwaway, the subject matter often obscure. World-weary yet uplifting melodies are channelled by strident guitars and gorgeous vocal harmonies, offset by beautiful keyboard parts and driven by a rock-solid rhythm section.

    Once referred to as ‘The Masters of Midtempo’, the band can also deftly turn their hand to heart-warming, uplifting power pop.

    “After All These Years” is by turns a celebratory, cerebral, nostalgic and just downright joyous collection. It acts as a retrospective, a potted history, a memoir of a decade of making music and as the perfect nod to what the future holds in store for this most resolute and hard-working of bands.

It's a big world out there
There are mountains and there are seas
And it's the North Atlantic
That separates you from me

I would get there if I could
But I admit I find it hard
I feel stuck in this corner
Like a stamp on a postcard

And while I'm on the subject of correspondence
I've missed your voice and your easy way with words
If you could find the time it'd make my week
You don't even have to speak
Just pick up a pen and write me a letter from Canada

This mighty river this town sits upon
Was the source that led you here
But like my heart it freezes over
At this time of year

And when the melt water starts rising
Remember I was once your friend
I promise you won't be found wanting
Upon me you can depend

Our family bonds they are unspoken
We’ll get there although the outboard is clearly broken
If you can reach out and offer your hand to me
I'll help you climb this family tree
And with a little help we can both make it back from Canada

The halls of this museum
That we walked through years ago
Showed us images of our past
A kind of sepia slide show

We've chosen our sides so let's enter the fray
We can't affect the past so let's concentrate on today
So steel yourself for what lies ahead
Fix bayonets and go back to bed
And for the next 10 years we can dream about life in Canada


from After All These Years, released September 1, 2017

The Wynntown Marshals Edinburgh, UK

Formed in Edinburgh in 2007, The Marshals tip their hat to The Jayhawks, Wilco, Drive-By Truckers, Tom Petty, Ryan Adams & Neil Young.

Their sound can loosely be described as ‘country rock' with powerpop hooks, but they love layered guitars, catchy choruses and have an unabashed belief in the power of rock music as a storytelling medium.

The new album "The Long Haul" is out now!
