So far our Halloween tour has been pretty great. We’ve made lots of new friends, caught up with old ones, played stonking shows with some of the best bands in town and generally partied all over the country. We’ve currently got a few days off in a little cabin somewhere in the Welsh countryside. We’re writing songs and regaining the pounds we have lost over the last three weeks.
Exciting things. We are curating a whole room at Rumpus this December! We have programmed an incredible lineup of the most talented bands, DJ’s and circus/cabaret performers from the world over, just for you. Welcome to the Silk Road Revue!
“A carnival of debauchery, demons and devilish destruction. Jugglers and acrobats mingle with pirates and seafolk, whilst roaming troubadours venture forth from the wild East to serenade you with sonic delights. Immerse yourself in this cultural crossroads and take a step into the Silk Road Revue.” – Rumpus, December 5th (http://www.rumpusparty.co.uk)
We also caught wind that Radio One in the Czech Republic (http://www.radio1.cz) played out our single last Sunday, and we had another tune dropped at Tribe of Frog on Halloween by our good friend Kaptin Barret. We’ve also started planning our next European tour in February, which will have us visiting Poland for the first time, as well as returning to Croatia after our week at the beautiful Goulash Disko Festival.
We still have some incredible shows to look forward to on this tour and are still looking for places to stay at a few of the dates below – anyone with beds or sofas in Cambridge, Norwich and Dublin who wouldn’t mind looking after a few stray musicians then please get in touch. We can return the favour with friendship, breakfast and rum!
