It may not have escaped our readers’ notice that Walsall Football Club are shortly going to be playing at Wembley Stadium for the first time in their entire history!
Now there’s even more great news for music-loving Walsall footie fans – Walsall’s very own Indie/Alternative band THE ASSIST have specially written and produced a timely musical tribute to The Saddlers – and their great new single ‘Walsall FC Go To Wembley’ is now available to pre-order from iTunes!
All profits made from the sale of this song will be donated to The Brain Tumour Charity and the Walsall FC Youth Development Programme.
Not only but also, the song will also be released on a CD single format at a cost of £5, each one signed by the band and limited to 127 copies only, one to mark each year of the clubs history. This is bound to become a sought-after collector’s item!
Walsall Football Supporters’ Trust have given special thanks to The Assist, Trust Member Adam Paget for making all of this possible, and also to Eddie Thomas at Dovecote Studio for donating all the studio time for free meaning more funds can be raised for these more than worthy causes.
The Assist has achieved relative success in a short time, their debut single was released in October last year and broke into the iTunes alternative album chart peaking at #116. they’ve performed headline gigs at 02 Academy’s in Birmingham and Manchester, as well as support slots with happy Mondays, Reverend and the Makers and also legendary bass player of The Jam Bruce Foxton.
A recent highlight for the band was playing the Blackpool Rocks Festival, sharing the stage with The 1975, Disclosure and Swim Deep.
