Following the release of their self-recorded 2009 CD a.h.a.b. the band were invited to play a residency at Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge – Nashville & in 2010 Ahab played Fairport Convention’s Cropredy Festival. ‘Whispering’ Bob Harris watched them storm the 15,000 strong crowd & invited them to record a session for his show. At this point Ahab had not released any material for purchase.
November 2010 saw the 'No King' EP & consequently led to legendary producer John Leckie recording their 'KMVT' EP. BBC Radio 2 enthusiastically supported the key track 'Wish You' with regular prime time plays.
Throughout 2011, Ahab were building a name for themselves performing at over 25 festivals both at home & abroad & then in November they joined Navigator stable-mates Bellowhead as guests on their sell-out UK tour playing to 20k people.
Thanks to overwhelming demand from their fanbase they released the live album 'Live in London' featuring 14 tracks which is now available. The initial pressing sold out during the pre-release tour!
Ahab release ‘Wits End’, a compilation of re-mastered songs from the No King and KMVT EPs on 6 May on Navigator Records.
