Swallow The Sea

It's here, it's here! The Valiant Arms' first record! And I do mean record, it's on beautiful, clear vinyl! For those of you who were unfortunate enough to give up your turntables we have included a cd inside the album.
"Swallow the Sea: The Songs of the Crabs" is a tribute to our dear friends Jonn and Lisa, aka The Crabs. Their beautiful songs have entranced us for years, and we had to try our hand at playing them. Loads of friends and family added bits and pieces to this, including mandolins, banjos, trumpets and pedal steel guitar. This is the VA's first line-up with Rachel Blumberg on drums and Kevin Walters on guitar. The design master is the inimitable Rob Jones, in top form with his idea of a 78 rpm record sleeve as the cover, and giant crabs stalking all over it.
There are only 50 of these beauties, so get yours today at
