Trampolene have released six EPs in the last three years and their debut album, Swansea to Hornsea is ready to grace us with its presence. It will be released on 27th October.

“Exceptional poetry, funny and depressing at the same time – how often can you say that?”
Dr John Cooper Clarke describing Jack Jones‘ spoken word pieces
‘Swansea To Hornsey,’ will be available on limited edition 12” vinyl, CD, Deluxe CD and digital download.
Over the last two years, Trampolene have toured almost continuously , with stand out supports with The Libertines, Buzzcocks, Peter Doherty, Reverend & The Makers, The Enemy, Pretty Vicious, Catfish & The Bottlemen and Carl Barat & The Jackals. This Summer, Trampolene performed at the Isle of Wight Festival (headlining The Jack Rocks Stage/This Feeling Stage), The Great Escape, Tramlines, Y Not, Hope & Glory and Reading Festival.
They have the confidence and the talent to go astronomic as their appeal and intrigue bewitches and beguiles audiences everywhere. They are certainly getting the word out there. People are listening. And in the words of the wonderful Jack Jones:
‘I’m still in the best live band in the world though … who the fuck needs a phone to send a message?’
