After four years of performing live on stage, Trenchcoat decided to build their own recording studio. Stepping into the world of recording-techniques the band embarked on a journey to produce and record their own album.
The luxury of owning a recording studio enabled the band to freely experiment with a variety of old microphones, recording equipment and instruments. New songs were written and existing arrangements were re-examined. While recording, the sound of Trenchcoat evolved into a more mature, darker package.
Eventually there were enough songs recorded to put out an album. The band asked Jan Schenk (Voicst, Blues Brother Castro, The Moi Non Plus) to mix the new album. For mastering they turned to Alan Ward (Black Sabbath).
Good friend Rogier Wieland (previously responsible for the international critically acclaimed stop-motion music video “Whatcha Got”) was asked to do the artwork of the album. With the help of Ane Bang he delivered an album for which the artwork was unprecedented in terms of creativity and originality.

The Trongate Rum Riots hail from Glasgow, a city as soaked in salty maritime tradition as their music. Originally forming as a sea shanty band to revive this rich and emotive style of music, the band has evolved over the past five years to incorporate the many influences its troupe of musicians bring on board. Their style ranges from sweaty punk to dirty folk, with the occasional bluesy lick and Balkan riff, and is equally as visceral in its plugged-in form as it is in its stripped-back acoustic set. No matter the event, the Trongate Rum Riots bring their unique and powerful style, leaving no listener safe from its pounding rhythms. Behind the joyous chaos lies an eight-piece of dexterous, talented musicians who continue to charm and exhilarate crowds around Scotland and beyond. The band is a favourite of the festival scene, including headlining the Festival du Chant de Marin International Sea Shanty Festival in France, which welcomes over 180,000 people. Other highlights include headlining Wickerman’s Acoustic Tent and playing Eden’s main stage in 2015 and headlining new festivals Upside Doon and Firefly in 2016 and 2017 as well as opening the Cowal Highland Gathering in 2017. The band released their debut album 'Hymns of the Deep' in May 2017 and are currently touring in Scotland, the rest of the UK, and Europe.
