'Setting fire to sleepy towns' EP is the 2nd 5 track EP from ex-Catchers singer-songwriter Dale Grundle. All the songs were written, played and recorded by Dale at home. It is a limited edition of 750 copies and comes in a new handmade sleeve designed by Pika Pika which is signed and numbered by Dale. The sleeve contains a smoke pattern silk-screened on the inside with the name of the EP burnt on to the front.
