THE WALK and Other Stories by Coddiwomple was released in France on March 6th, 2020, by À Tant Rêver Du Roi.

Coddiwomple is a "not typical” trio uniting the 2 guitarists Nicolas Lafourest (Forêt, Cannibales & vahinés, The And, Ostaar Klake) and Olivier Mellano (Mellanoisescape, Ici-bas, No Land, La Chair des Anges) with GW Sok (Action Beat, King Champion Sounds, Oiseaux-Tempête, Cannibales & Vahines, The And, ex-the Ex).
THE WALK and Other Stories is their very first album, based on and inspired by the book with the same name of Swiss author Robert Walser (1878-1956).
"A powerful and atmospheric music where incandescent guitars and electric explosions give an abrasive and sparkling echo to the lyrical intensity and extreme tension of G.W. Sok's singing who finds a new way here."

Recorded and mixed by Nicolas Dick, in Marseille, September 2019.

Reviews
"Beaucoup de liberté, de l’intensité à revendre, l’implication totale de chacun, une grande économie qui suggère beaucoup et l’élégance maousse font tout simplement de The Walk And Other Stories un incontournable."  — Leo Luce / Indierockmag, March 2020

"C’est d’une sensibilité proche de Enablers par son chant inspiré qui s’ancre sur une musique tumultueuse, entre le parlé et le chanté avec une certaine distance, on peut y retrouver une proximité avec Nick Cave également. L’énergie qui se dégage par moment est brute, farouche et sauvage." — Priscille Roy / À Decouvrir Absolutement, March 2020
