Take Us to Your Planet


September 6, 2007
Alternative rock, experimental, electronica

Take Us to Your Planet is an EP by British indie-pop group The Seymours and electronica act Aftershock. It was released on September 6, 2007 and peaked at #10 at the UK charts.

The EP is a collaborative effort by the two groups, released in the wake of Aftershock's It Won't Be Long Now, while The Seymours were on a break after touring behind their debut album. Relations between Picholl and Gilbert were obviously strained at the time of recording, and most of the tracks are sung by Alex Hughes, with the exception of "Take Us to Your Planet" and "Your Cover's Blown" which featured no Aftershock input at all. Picholl turned up only for one of the sessions, and despite it being a fruitful one it left Gilbert to provide both backing vocals and guitar work for "Time & Space" and "I Know What I Saw".

While reaching #10 in the bands' native country, the EP was heavily promoted in Asia and especially Japan, where The Seymours recieved their highest chart placing to date. It was the first Seymours release to be available on online music shops.

The sleeve was made by the acclaimed Red Dot Design Bureau. Ian Picholl has called it "fucking atrocious".
