The album will be preceded by a single, She's Got You High, which is set for release on May 14th 2007.

What’s that coming over the hill? It’s a band with all the primary colour and frivolity of their ill-fitting, novelty name-tag (for those loyal to the other channel, Mumm-Ra was the undead ever-living nemesis of cartoon mutants the Thundercats), that’s what. Fresh-faced to the core and melodically virginal, they might shake their fists like harder-shelled japesters The Automatic, but channel their not inconsequential enthusiasm into the moisturised mainstream skin of bands like Feeder and Snow Patrol. They cut an interesting figure even if their ambition never quite solidifies into the vast shapes it wants to. The meek vocals are pushed to their limits and endear through their eagerness, evoking Richard Archer from Hard-Fi without the hangover or the wide-eyed folly of a pre-broadsheet Damon Albarn. "Song B", in a clear reference to Blur’s most explosive moment, and "Out of the Question", rattling along like a mockney Wannadies, have them trying to flex their muscle, though they find more comfortable success with skinny-fit melodies of "She’s Got You High" and "What Would Steve Do?", carried through on a light breeze. They mine the vaults of late-90s fringe Britpop, bands like Ooberman and The Supernaturals, and like them they throw enough paint up at the speaker to keep things colourful at the very least. - - James Berry

Having seen a couple of Mumm-Ra gigs over the last 6 months or so I was worried that the energy exuded on stage wouldn't be recreated in the recordings. Wrong!! A well mastered and produced album that had me enthusiastically tapping away to all the tracks at first listen. From the slow and gentle ease into the opening Now Or Never, it's not long before the tempo reaches an absorbing and very melodic cruise; with the odd moment of haunting soft vocal and accoustic guitar thrown in also. Out Of The Question is clearly the pinnacle - it has to be rereleased as a single, surely. Commercial, a bit, maybe; but individual and creative also. I love it and so does the wife and young kids (very rare to have agreement on what to play in the car). I genuinely can't believe that this can come from ones so young - well they all look about sixteen anyway!!

This album reminds me of child hood because: a) they're named after the scary baddy from Thundercats and b) my mum always used to say `These things come in threes' when everything went wrong, she still does in fact. It also reminds me of being a wee bairn because of that tingly feeling their melodies give you, `What would steve do?' strikes some kind of hormonal chord with it's naive refrain `you are the best thing/you've just changed everything...' Imagine the Killers without being quite so middle of the road, Britpop without the `whacky-ness'. Basically Mumm-Ra are uplifting indie boys with a penchant for euphoric choruses and star jumps on stage. `She's got you high' is Gregorian chanting for the kids of today whilst `Starlight' has more cheesy choruses and power chords than you would dare to ignore. Anthemic? Maybe. Worth a listen? Definitely

These lot look too young even to be out of school, but they've impressed me every time I have an encounter. Saw them for the 1st time last year in Reading and they were one of the stand out bands of the weekend for me. Half hour set to a packed out tent. So glad I saw them - All thanks to that curious band name... Its been like far too long since then for this album!! Its actually done my head in waiting for this 1.

Packed full of smart hooks, top tracks and quirkiness, I'd love them to do a Kaiser chiefs.

Very surprised they left out - "when the lights go out" (Out of the question b-side) - An acoustic track that shows off Noo's skills as a songwriter so well its crazy. (at least I think its Noo that writes) Either way this band is way talented.

Saw them live again in Bristol Thekla about 2 weeks ago and they were still on form; And I think the single "she's got you high" has been used by HSBC for an advert (a low key affair) if that's not a thumbs up by "the man" then hey...

I hope this band gets the recognition they deserve.

Highly recommended.

(I wish you well Mumm-Ra)

I first heard Mumm-Ra almost a year ago when they went on the NME New Rock Tour with The Automatic [R.I.P], The View and The Horrors. What a line-up! Yet as fantastic the other three bands, I seemed to take more of a liking to the 5 lads from Bexhill On Sea. When I found out 'What Would Steve Do?' reached the UK Top 40 at er.. 40, I was happy for the band who thoroughlly deserved more than what they got. Then 'These Things Move In Threes' came out and it became a mission for me to buy it. When I got it, I put it into the CD player in an instant and what came out was the brilliant sound that is James New. [or Noo as he is known] The defining tracks are as follows:

Now Or Never
Out Of The Question
These Things Move In Threes
She's Got You High
Song B
This Is Easy
What Would Steve Do?

The rest of the album is just as brilliant but the above are all so energetic and vibrant they make me excited about the band. I can hardly wait for the second album. The question is will it be a 'Second Coming' or a 'Favourite Worst Nightmare'? I certainly hope things can only get better from my icons

Mumm-ra have produced a absolute masterpiece. The album mixes elements from pop, rock, jazz and indie.

The album has a very fresh british sound and the quality of the instrumentals is set well above anything around at the moment.

I cannot recommend this album enough!...also go see them live, their shows are so energetic and lively....

The band has also been around for ages and are well due a big break...
