Woob – AD4PTION : A History for the Curious

Ad4ption is out today and you can catch up on the existing written storyline here but I just wanted to touch briefly on the creation of this album as not since Have Landed has a Woob album had such a checkered history.

Back in early 2018 I started the album, it began with a folder (AD4) left over from ‘Tales of Arcadia’ that contained an unfinished track called ‘Bricks’. I got around three tracks in with a few just beginning when a sudden threat of having to move house combined with me wanting to do a vinyl release meant I had to shelve it temporarily. The move never materialised and then things took a traumatic turn, so it wasn’t until earlier this year that I got to continue where I had left off.

Previously on Adaption…

With Adaption Part 4 out any day now I though it would be useful to put all the written word side of the story into one post with some musical interludes.

Adaption Parts 1 and 2 date back to 2015 and were available together for 90 days and they have not been seen since…

Adaption‘ is a psychological thriller / horror musical adaptation of a story centered around a small coastal town’s abandoned video-arcade that mysteriously springs to life after midnight transforming all its unsuspecting visitors into the undead.


Previously on Adaption…

After being possessed by 8-bit ancient code at an abandoned video arcade Jessica splits from the group and goes back to her house to deal with the transmutation the best way she can…



As the night moves on into the small hours, a group of Arcadia’s residents conspire to avenge the presumed death of their friend – with horrifying consequences.

UPDATED – OUT NOW – Bandcamp // Woob HQ

Yes! it’s happening today! …Just I(‘m in UK time)

I’m running a lot behind schedule as forgot today clashed with Prototype Vector’s landing! but it is happening will post some reveal times a little later. Launch event post should begin proper around 10.10 pm (UK time) bookmark this page and get those F5′s/refreshes at the ready!

Lost 1194 Is a collection of previously unreleased recordings from the Woob debut album recording sessions at Square Center Studios. Digitally Re-mastered keeping the integrity of the original sound intact and formed from the alternate live mixes (Wuub had 6!) this collection combines to form an alternative take on 1194.

The roots of most of these recordings can be found in the original Woob six part cassette series. However there are tracks from that series that were not part of the original debut and some of these will also appear as part of this new collection. This launch Event Post will reveal various editions and how these will be included.

The Lost Prologue below gives you an ambient taster of the album to be released Tonight!

The amazing artwork is by French concept artist and illustrator Florian de Gesincourt the widescreen version will feature on the CD.
