Metheglin expect to be starting work on their second album this summer! Pete "Peewee" Coleman says "We are looking forward to working on the new material, over the winter we have had lots of ideas - so we are hoping for something really good!" However the band don't have a name for the new album yet.
2012 is a busy year for Metheglin - in addition to starting work on a new album, there are lots of gigs and festivals already arranged in their calendar.

"Raining in Paradise" is the debut album of a band with a very distinctive sound and a very different type of line-up. The album was recorded and produced by Pete "peewee" Coleman - more usually noted for his work with bands such as AC/DC, The Charlatans and Echo and the Bunnymen - on his new label Pipe-Dream Music.
The album packs a wide dynamic breadth of music within its 16 tracks, you never know what's coming next... slow orchestral to frenetic trance, and yet it delivers the solely unique sound that is Metheglin. So be prepared for music unlike anything you have ever heard before!
Metheglin play contemporary progressive folk on modern versions of medieval instruments. The music could be termed "experimental", and is a melodic blend of modern, medieval and dance, all underpinned with exciting percussion, driving bass lines and exotic instrumentation.
