Joshua Ben Joseph album delay

For those waiting on the incomparable Joshua Ben Joseph’s new album it has been delayed for what we hope will only be a short time. It’s a technical issue and one we are working swiftly to fix so that we can bring you ‘Mary Midnight And Mary Monk’ which is perhaps the songwriters best album to date.


Eromeda Records and Butterfly Music Co. are extremely proud of Joshua’s incredible body of work. You can support Joshua by downloading instead of streaming his albums at iTunes at the present time (although his new album will be out on CD). Below is Joshua’s discography links;

Joshua Ben Joseph Returns

In a follow up to our last post regarding JBJ having finished his new studio album we can announce the release dates for both the album and the single containing a B Side not available on the album. The new album ‘Mary Midnight And Mary Monk’ contains some of the artists most thought provoking work, as well as his usual dash of satire. The single will be ‘Race On The Run’ coupled with the B Side ‘Barbarians At The Gates Of Rome’. A cluster of performances in February 2019 are being put together in Oxford, Winchester, Leeds, Edinburgh, and Glasgow, but no definitive tour dates are available to announce at this time. The new album Mary Midnight And Mary Monk is scheduled for release on November 26th, with a limited number of CD’s available at shows and the Eromeda Online Shop. Here’s the cover art and track listing.
