‘Flowers’ is their first official single from their upcoming album, ‘All That We Had, We Stole’, due for release on 10th February 2017 – a polished and accomplished debut produced by Nick Trepka, whose producer credits include Emmy The Great and Mercury Prize Winner Speech Debelle. “As soon as we began talking to Nick about working together, he was adamant that we should record as much as we possibly could live” says the band. “So we locked ourselves into the studio and didn't leave until we had an album. It's quite a varied mix and we feel it says a lot about who we are, who we've been so far and who we're becoming.”

Patch & The Giant are a dynamic troupe of musicians who have fast become a genuine force within the UK alt-folk scene, since releasing their debut EP The Boatswain’s Refuge on Folkroom Records in 2013 (produced by BBC Folk Award winner Ben Walker). National radio support has come from BBC Radio 2, BBC Radio 6 and Amazing Radio, they’ve had loyal support from the blog community and have recorded live sessions for the BBC’s legendary ‘Whispering’ Bob Harris, Bandstand Busking, Songs From The Shed, Sofar Sounds and many more.
