Kia Ora e Te Whanau

Ben here, I play guitar and sing in Mice on Stilts. Welcome to our website. We have had this URL for some time now. Possibly almost three years so I thought it was about time we started using it. Joseph has created the site and has been making changes here and there for the last 2 years, now that he is gone I’ve been trying to learn about building websites (scary stuff).

If you have been following us on facebook then you will know that we are currently working on a new album entitled ‘Hope for a Mourning’. Its a development on top of the EP An Ocean Held Me in the sense that it carries SOME of the same themes with a bunch of new ones in there too. Although, it is much bleaker and the songs are even longer.

We have been working on this for almost a year now.  I remember when we went out to Neptune Bar out in Huia for the weekend as an 8 piece with a PA. We spent the whole time jamming and fleshing out ideas getting reading to begin drum tracking. That was a very exciting time, but if I’m being honest I’m more interested in what’s happening now. We have had some pretty massive opportunities come our way and we’re less than a month off receiving the final master of the album. This is what we have been building towards.
