Already featured several times by Louder Than War and fastly becoming one of their favourites, All Hail Hyena are a band growing in popularity throughout the local music scene, with their no nonsense attitude towards being serious about making music that isn’t serious.
After some landmark shows supporting the likes of Grandaddy, William D. Drake, Ultrasound and their intrinsic involvement in the second upcoming Cardiacs / Tim Smith benefit concert The Whole World Window II, All Hail Hyena are a band with their sights set on the glowing rings of Saturn.
Louder Than War Chief, John Robb recently witnessed the band at Manchester Castle where they headlined with another emerging act The Empty Page. John said: “Their zig zag riffs and colliding noise is like the Cardiacs on the East Lancs and, coupled with their Dayglo look, chunky mad scientist sunglasses and twitching energy makes them quite a spectacle…. there is something brilliantly off-kilter about the trio as they cram more ideas into one song than most bands have in a whole set.”
This video for Stranger’s Song is the first in a series of upcoming videos for tracks recorded, mixed, produced and mastered entirely by the band. This video was filmed by Chalkman Video in Bamber Bridge.
Audio recorded, mixed, produced and mastered by ALL HAIL HYENA.
Drums recorded at Groove Studios and everything else in the HYENA INC. Golden Palace of Sound.
A music video filmed on a budget of next-to-nothing (except a flask of hot chocolate and some sandwiches) with dedication, passion, love and patience thrown in.
The song and video touch upon the sensitive and somewhat secretive world of child neglect and what it is like growing up through this process.
With music by Jay Stansfield (http://facebook.com/jaystansfieldmusic) and Cinematography by Donna Craddock (http://facebook.com/clickclickbangphotography) the video has invoked tears in most viewers and is a powerful portrayal of the emotions surrounding a broken, repressed and tormented upbringing.
The track 'Building A Shield' is taken from the album 'Gobstopper' (released June 3rd 2013 on WLM).

Thanks for watching and please share this DIY project!!
This is a micro-documentary of Jay Stansfield recording at The Basement Project for his debut EP. This particular session was for laying down the drum tracks for 'Maisy', 'Butterscotch Sky' and 'Set Sail' although drums on 'Set Sail' will be at a minimum.
It was an amazing session and Rob Ashworth played drums and Maria Stansfield sang the harmonies on the bridge to 'Maisy'.
This micro-documentary was filmed on Tuesday the 13th April 2010.
