We are back to normality now after the European tour – it was the best tour yet and we met some beautiful people along the way. Cheers to Frontal Noize for booking it for us. My guitar is broken again, but other than that we got through it pretty much unscathed. Having said that, Will did smash his leg into the stage in Dresden (hilarious) and by Jena I was in massive back and rib pain. Anyway, the hospitality we experienced was far beyond what we’re used to in England and it made for a much more relaxed and cost-effective tour. We also played in the corner of a restaurant which was an odd new experience for us (apologies if we ruined your dinner) – oh, and I got engaged which was brilliant too. And only one vomit incident (the sink had no pipes attached, not my fault). Thanks to everyone who came to a gig, put us on, put us up and helped in any way – we will be back when we can.
We played with many great bands along the way – I won’t mention them all but you should certainly check out The Samuel Jackson Five (http://www.facebook.com/thesamueljacksonfive), Eschar(http://www.facebook.com/escharband), Artwon Artown Artnow(http://www.facebook.com/artwonartownartnow), Sleepmakeswaves(http://www.facebook.com/sleepmakeswaves) and Kovlo (http://www.facebook.com/KOVLO).
There are lots more photos of us playing and pratting around on our facebook (http://condense.it/2×4) – if anyone has any photos or videos we haven’t got hold of yet they’d be much appreciated…..
Our next show will be on Saturday 9th June at The Urban Bar, London with The Narrows and Yokozuna. FB event here: http://www.facebook.com/events/216841675090438/ It will be our last show for a while as we want to hide ourselves away and write for a while before we crack on with recording the second album.
Again, thank you for your support of this band – it really does fuel the fire. If you feel like helping us out some more please ‘share’ our facebook page onto your timeline and link people to this site. In return we will make the best sounding album we possibly can.
