Nominated for Album of the Year

We're really excited to announce that we've been nominated for Album of the Year in the 2017 Music Award of Staffordshire and Cheshire. Wolf Party, our seventh album, was released in July 2016 and featured our latest single 'The Wolf.' 

Voting for the awards will open on 25th December. We're certain you'll have nothing else to do on that day and will be waiting to cast your votes.

Downtime/Downside

Some of you may have seen we announced a little rest the other day. Quite dramatic for the band that has rarely stood still for four and a half years, but that's a big part of why we need a month or two to just breathe. 

I know I speak for the rest of the band when I say we're really grateful for the love and support people have shown Wolf Party. I mean come on, it's a helluva a record, but we've been bowled over by people's response.  

By the way a rest doesn't mean lying on a beach somewhere... currently JT, SBT and JRen are working on the latest Don't Call Me Ishmael album, JT and SBT finished the debut E.P by Chris Venebles (which'll be released soon) and of course there's Twerking Men's Club and all the other projects we get involved in. Long way of saying, we're still busting a gut on music. 

The next live show will be in Stafford at the Market Vaults on October 1. We've had to cancel or shift everything between now and then. We're thankful to the people who have accommodated that.

Finally we're going to be on Moorlands FM on Monday evening on the Quiet Revolution show hosted by our guide and friend Gary Wilcox. You can tune in at 7pm by clicking here.  

Thanks for all the love,

JT - The Taskers  

First review of Wolf Party

The first review of Wolf Party is in...and it's damn fine. The wonderful Emily of E Major has penned some words on our seventh slice of heart driven alt.rock. 

Em says, 'Wolf Party’ is most definitely their best album yet and The Taskers are most definitely at the best they’ve ever been.'
