  • We Were Never Here Photobook + CD

    epic45 have dedicated their music-making career to the ordinary threads that run through life. Their releases have always featured documentary photography either curated from family albums or created by themselves. We Were Never Here is the duo’s first photography book with a CD companion of all new work. Photographs were taken and the music was created in South Staffordshire 2019-2020.

    In 48 pages the book documents familiar suburban and semi-rural ‘nowhere places’ that exist between large towns and cities, motorways and dual carriageways. A convenience of commuter belt paradises, with row upon row of clinically aligned sensible housing (for those that can afford it!). And the spaces between these where you might find a gate restricting access that leads to no place in particular, or an abandoned outbuilding claiming territory as a dilapidated indicator of ownership.

    "I found a kinship with the works of George Shaw. It mirrored the eye for mundane detail that runs through our visual work and the poignancy that can convey" ~ Ben Holton, one half of epic45.

    Sold Out

  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    We were supposed to be returning from our Japanese tour today, but for obvious reasons, we've had to postpone touring until next year.

    Just before lockdown, we produced a CD jewel case version of our recent album 'We Were Never Here' exclusively for Japanese fans. Because of the tour postponement, and closure of all record shops in Japan, we haven't been able to sell this version as hoped.

    Due to our Photobook + CD version now being sold out, we wanted to make this version available for anyone still wishing to purchase a physical copy of the album. The CD comes with a 16-page booklet of photos, some of which are exclusive, as well as 2 bonus tracks ('Canal Bridge' & 'Hometime') which will not be available elsewhere.

    Includes unlimited streaming of We Were Never Here via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.
