During their original run, Stornoway achieved immense critical acclaim, fan adoration and two Top 20 albums, one of which (their debut 'Beachcomber's Windowsill') was certified Silver. But in 2016 they announced that they were ending on a high (2015's 'Bonxie' being "their best album yet" according to The Guardian) with the following year's farewell tour, although their rapturously received WOMAD set ("a magnificent farewell", The Spectator) was delayed until 2022. They still earned new fans, however, when their version of 'The Only Way Is Up' exceeded 2 million streams after being used in an advert and in various TV shows. Vocalist/guitarist Brian Briggs stopped songwriting altogether and instead pursued a new career passion managing a wetland for water voles and lapwings. Nonetheless, Brian and bandmates Jon Ouin (keyboard) and Oli Steadman (bass) stayed in torch, and step-by-step they reconnected with the love of creating music that had first inspired them to start a band. With Brian writing in a makeshift studio on a remote coastal hilltop and Jon readying a series of ideas of his own, eventually an entirely unexpected fourth Stornoway album emerged - 'Dig The Mountain!', which is set to be released on September 8th via Cooking Vinyl. The album is launched alongside the new track 'Trouble With The Green' - the first new music in eight years.
