Stand and Deliver! Hand over your lupins!

'Stand and Deliver', is now available on pre-order for delivery on October 20th.

This, the third Pilgrims' Way studio album, comes on either CD or limited edition Vinyl record and is only available on pre-order through our shop!

Pilgrims' Way present a themed album packed full of highwaymen, robbers, and brigands, their stories told through traditional English folk song and 1980s disco.

Avoided at all costs, scorned and mocked, these villainous figures have fascinated and alarmed the good people of England for years. Now they've made an album about highwaymen.

Pilgrims' Way are often accused of stealing a living, so it made perfect sense to draw from the rich seam of the highwayman ballad. From the derring-do of Robin Hood bashing the bishop, via Dick Turpin's doomed attempt to obtain legal aid under a Tory government, to 'The Box on her Head', the dramatic and unforgettable tale of a young lady with a box on her head, the album covers centuries of inflated stories, glorified violence, sexual innuendo, and the common man breaking all the rules in a desperate bid to put right what once went wrong, and hoping each time that his next leap will be the leap home.

Incorporating over 40 instruments, a dozen songs, and a riotous feel-good energy throughout, this is a magnificent tour-de-force by a band at the absolute peak of their overdraft.

Send no money now! This exquisite and elegant hand-crafted Royal Doulton porcelain masterpiece is one of only a hundred in production and can be yours for 24 monthly instalments of £29.99.

Alternatively, visit our online shop and pick up a copy of the CD or Vinyl.
