Since we’ve been home for a couple of weeks and the photos/journal still aren’t ready to go online, I figured I should post something here in the interim.
Our Euro tour was amazing. We met a bunch of excellent people, saw loads of good cats and dogs, received customary abuse from border control and consumed a truly disgusting volume of Premium-Cola. Huge thanks as always to everyone who helped us out, and to our new pal Brad for driving us.
On the other hand, we had to cancel a show in Le Mans, France after some mechanical stuff I don’t understand left us stranded in Dole (I wouldn’t recommend visiting this nothing town on your next trip to France), feeling like royalty in our insurance-paid, hugely mediocre hotel. Sorry to anyone who wanted to see us in Le Mans – maybe one day we’ll finally play in France…
We also had to miss a show in Kent due to the promoter cancelling it. That’s not as good a story though; that just sucked.
BUT, we’re home and working on new songs/booking more shows – if you want to set up a show for us in Europe this year, get in touch. Our next show will be at a new space in Aberdeen for the Carson Wells LP release, along with Womps (formerly Algernon Doll). The venue is tiny, so space is limited – get there early or ask to have a space kept for you!
Our record also finally exists in physical form – pre-orders and everything will be online soon along with leftover shirts and 10” splits from tour. If you still haven’t heard the album, you can listen to it here.
