Anyway, I just wanted to let you know that we can confirm today that we WILL be returning to your fabulous O2 Academies in Islington (London) and Bristol at some point over the summer. We got the go ahead yesterday, and although we have no dates pinned down just yet (they will be dependent on how soon our new set is ready), one or both shows will more than likely be between now and September.
This of course means that we are writing a ton of new music! We've had heaps of songs knocking around for an age now - a couple of which you will have heard at our live shows from the past couple months. We are due to finish off a bunch of the writing over the summer, as well as going into the studio to record the material on at least one occasion.
Once our new set is sorted, we'll be right back on the road to a town near you. Naturally, we'll let you know when we have dates confirmed, and we'll start selling tickets on the store.
Speaking of tickets, we are eagerly awaiting the arrival of the tickets for our Slade Rooms (Wolverhampton) show which is on the 6th June. This is a showcase sort of show, and we'll be having ticket sales from our store for this one as well, as soon as they arrive.
Details all in this charmingly enthusiastic tweet from Wolves Civic Hall, who own the venue:
I'll be checking out our fellow bands on that bill later today, when I get a minute. Looks to be some real talent there though, so really buzzed for the show - especially as it'll have been two years, almost to the day, since our first ever trip to the Slade Rooms! In a happy coincidence, that was also our first ever full show with Jamie playing drums, long before he replaced Phil as our full-time drummer.
Regrettably we most likely won't have all our new music finished and ready to showcase by that show, but rest assured it is steadily on its way.
If you get a minute, check out my latest blog post over on our Fundraising page, chatting about endorsements and partnerships and all things good in the world.
I'll be back in a few hours with some more info on our upcoming shows and studio sessions.
