"Animals" is the debut album by Oxford band This Town Needs Guns. It is to be released on the 13th of October, 2008 under BSM Records. It was recorded over the periods of May through until June on a four weekend basis due to financial and personal demands. It was all recorded at the Lodge Studios in Northamptoncite web | url=http://www.thistownneedsguns.com/blog/?tag=studio-diary | title=Album Recording Location | accessdate=2008-10-07 ]

Every song on the album continues the same theme of being named after different types of animals. During the writing and recording phase, the band named each song with temporary names in order to avoid calling them formal titles, such as "New Track 1", etc. So, they settled with names of animals as a fleeting substitute for the song names, hoping to change them before release. However, the band eventually couldn't decide on official names to replace them with, so the titles remained as they were.cite web | url=http://www.audioscribbler.co.uk/features/3766 | title=Animal Naming theme | accessdate=2008-10-07 ]

'Panda' has been released as the first single and is accompanied with a promotional video, which was aired on the band's website and record label's YouTube page on the 3rd of September, 2008.cite web | url=http://www.thistownneedsguns.com/blog/?p=127 | title=Panda Video | accessdate=2008-10-07 ]
