Welcome to the autumn 2016 newsletter. We hope the summer has treated you well. Here’s what’s going on and what’s coming up.
Back out on the road this autumn and delighted to be so. We have been holed up in the studio for most of the summer making the new album, which has meant a pretty quiet time in terms of live shows. So, it’s about time we got back out there again. Coming up are;
SIX duo shows in Scotland (including 2 performances of The Other Half with Mark Billingham)
TWO 4 piece band shows, in Biddulph and Harrogate
TWO 7 piece band shows, in Birmingham and London. Yes, full band shows, the full team re-assembled, just as they have been in the studio this summer
Tickets are selling very fast for these shows so we recommend you get them sooner rather than later.
All shows will feature some of the brand new songs from the forthcoming album and we are really looking forward to you hearing them.
Here are the UK dates, with more to follow in Europe in October and November. All shows are listed on our website.
