Fund Caravan’s New Studio Album!

We are happy and excited to announce that the new Caravan studio album will be recorded in beautiful Canterbury later this year. For all the information, click here.


To explain, PledgeMusic allows us to release this album directly to you, cutting out the middle men and cutting down the time between recording and release. It means youʼll be getting the new album before it goes into the shops. As a Pledger you will be basically pre-ordering the album and there will be a wide range of exclusive and limited edition items and experiences available just to you.


Thereʼll be signed CDs of the new album, signed Vinyl, T-shirts, LIVE recordings of the back catalogue, the opportunity to visit the studio to BE on the album, and a special Album Launch gig later this year, PLUS get your hands on Pye Hastings’ very own Stratocaster which he used to write the songs.


No matter what you pledge for you will automatically receive the album as a digital stream two weeks before we ship the physical copies. Youʼll also get access to our “Pledger-Only Updates Section”. This is a FREE web-page where weʼll keep you right up to date with the albumʼs progress in the form of video diaries, photos, blogs and rough mixes.


In addition, every pledger will be doing their bit to help a great charity as a percentage of the proceeds from this campaign will go to The Aspinall Foundation, a charity which supports animal conservation around the world.


Please get involved, letʼs keep the relationship between fans and artists rewarding, fruitful and close, and we’ll reward you with some very special items & experiences.

New Caravan Website

Welcome to the new Official home of the legendary… CARAVAN.

The second instalment of Caravan-Info went live in September 2010, in order to accompany the band’s revival beginning with a special studio recording concert at Metropolis Studios. This service was hosted and powered by Get CTRL. Since then the website has provided service for 3.5 years but more recently has started to become problematic, so it was time for a replacement.

In March 2012, the band and management discussed replacing the current website with a new custom built system with a long time Caravan fan and web developer.

Originally we hadn’t expected to be able to carry over all the previously posted content, user accounts and user comments, but we are pleased to announce that this has been made possible by the incredible efforts of Herb Miller at


Please note that for your personal security, the original account password information was not accessed. In order to continue using your original account on our new website, you will need to request a password reset.


With our new home, we are now able to provide a complete discography of the Caravan output as well as many more new features coming your way soon.

The previous website at Get CTRL is no longer going to be updated or moderated but will remain live as a token to the band’s history. You can access the old website using the following link:


We hope you enjoy the new website and thank you for your continued support!

Martin Davenport, N Sinclair and Herb Miller.
