A 13 track aor album (51m 2s) — released November 9th 2018 on Freshly Squeezed

Back in 2007, 12 Stone Toddler were indisputably one of the most exciting and original bands to have come out of an already vibrant and buzzing music scene in Brighton; music capital of the UK's South Coast.

They were quickly identified as a group highly likely to break through by all those who heard them. Not only were they a superb live outfit of virtuoso musicians with a strong stage presence, but they brandished an eclectic (even fearlessly) broad and original musical style.

Their impeccable songwriting and wonderful delivery set them further apart still. No two songs sounded the same. There was no formula. Yet everything they touched had the same hallmark: quirky, original, dark, accomplished, beautiful, unique, funny, philosophical. They were genuinely loved by local press and fans alike. Two superb albums -DOES IT SCARE YOU? (2007) and SCHEMING (2009)came out in relatively quick succession. They consolidated the band's cult following, achieved rapturous critical acclaim (see below) and amassed considerable support, but then, like something from one of their own songs, the band simply disappeared.

Until now that is.... 10 years on, 12 Stone Toddler are back! Now signed to Freshly Squeezed and with a new line-up including the founder members and songwriters Ben Jones and Chris Otero on Keyboards, Bass and Vocals respectively, plus Helen Durden and Robin O'Keefe, they played selected shows at Glastonbury, Boomtown and Bestival 2017, with a not-so-secret sell out show in their hometown of Brighton.

Brimming full of innovative ideas... comparisons with other artists merely highlight the shortcomings of stylistic labelling. This is organic music that refuses to bebound by genre. - Get Ready To Rock

Strangely infectious: vaudeville razzmatazz laced with a subtle dirty rock buzz -
