NExEA CDs, signed by Paul Smith!

Paul Smith - who donated the exclusive track A Perfect Foil to NExEA - has very kindly signed the inserts of 5 of the limited edition CDs.

If you fancy owning one of these rarities, you just have to buy the CD online as soon as you can!

The next 5 orders we receive via the NExEA Bigcartel page will get the signed CD rather than the standard one. Go on - it’s payday today…

The CDs are in!

After a slight delay, the NExEA CDs have finally arrived!

Physical pre-orders will start being sent out over the weekend, and the CD will be available to purchase from RPM in Newcastle and Hot Rats in Sunderland from this Saturday, the 24th September.

There will also be a very small number available at MOF004 tonight at Cluny 2.

Of course, you can still order the CD online, as well as download the digital version!

Finally, here’s a little reminder of why we’re doing this:

NExEA Artwork

We’re very privileged to have Kerry Hyndman on board the NExEA project. She is an awesome artist who has been providing some amazing and eye-catching poster designs for Portions For Foxes for a while now.

You can check out her other work here, and her wonderful NExEA cover is below.

Press coverage part 1

NExEA has been announced and open to order for less than 36 hours, but we’re already seeing some pretty hefty press coverage coming in.

Below is a (probably incomplete) list of what people have written about the project so far. We have to say a big thank you to Joe Parry at 9PR for all his help in spreading the word about NExEA - he’s been truly amazing.

Remember, keep buying the CD or download - it’s all for a really really worthwhile cause.

NExEA shop sales information

Today has been pretty hectic, as you can probably imagine!

We’re already starting to see quite a few sales coming in for the PHYSICAL CD and the DIGITAL DOWNLOAD, but it doesn’t stop there…

We can now announce that the CD will be stocked exclusively at RPM Records in Newcastle and Hot Rats in Sunderland.

They will have their physical stock from Monday 19th September, the same day that CDs are shipped and full download links are sent out.

It’s worth reminding people that the CD is very, very limited, so it’s best to get in sooner rather than later to avoid disappointment.
