Sam and Me 'Battle Of Hemsby' Album & Lauch Parties

Sam and Me over the moon

As the world celebrates the anniversary of the first lunar landing, Sam and Me add a new date to modern history to mark the release of their debut album ‘The Battle of Hemsby’ (aA Recordings)

Hemsby is the seaside town visited by Rowan on his family holidays as a kid. Bordering Great Yarmouth, it is a classic ‘run-down British seaside town full of arcades and a load of tat’. After Sam and Rowan met at college, they used to drive out to Hemsby and in between rounds of crazy golf, they first starting writing songs together. The album artwork was shot in Hemsby and the first 500 copies come with a unique polaroid and Sam and Me wooden chip forks.

The album is officially released on Monday 24th August but you can pick up a copy from Monday 17th exclusively from the aA shop – we’ll even throw in a copy of the band’s first single ‘Sonic Boomerang/The Path’

If you can’t wait that long to hear the new recordings, download single ‘A Lying, Down Disposition’ is released TODAY! Get it from or your download store of choice will also have it.

You can view the brand new Eyebrowy video for the single here

All that’s left is to invite you to the 3 album launch shows the band will be playing in their 3 favourite towns:
