Hello, I'm writing an article on here as I have done my upmost to stay as quiet as I can in the last year. I do worry though that you will receive my vast silences with the interpretation that the wheels of Hurt aren't always turning. This couldn't be further from the truth. My year has been entirely dedicated to Hurt Records and breathing life into projects new and old in the hope that soon they will reach your ears and you will devour them. This has been a truly harrowing year for all of us. I feel so lucky that I.. … Read More
Welcome to the fourth part of this interview. Now, we’re focusing on Benn’s history with games, and his music both inspired by and made for them. How did you get into gaming?

Hello, It's been a week or so since my last blog post and I apologise for the delay. It's been an incredibly busy few weeks for me an my bands. It feels like i've not stopped working since I last wrote the blog post.

I am now happy to announce that the Quiet One album now has a name (which you will learn at.. … Read More
Dear you, I'm pleased to announce that we have just signed off on our brand new premises! It's in a little town called 'Esher' and the building was a 'gift and furniture' shop which fits our purpose perfectly. But what does this mean for you? Well, up until now we've only been able to deliver you with digital download. However incredible the quality (and the quality is stunning) it just isn't the same as holding a CD or DVD in your hands. We are please to inform you that we will be able to start shipping physical media in the.. … Read More
