Florida Forever

September 27, 2011

I write from the tour bus, which is currently parked out the back of The Social in Orlando, Florida, USA. The North American tour is in full swing. We’ve had awesome shows from Connecticut to West Columbia and everywhere in between; most gigs have been sold out. The guys in Andrew Jackson Jihad and IntoItOverIt are tearing it up every night onstage and being thoroughly lovely off it. It feels great to be back in the USA again, I have an awful lot of love for this country. OK I’ll admit it, I missed Denny’s.

Speaking of shows, there’s some good news (for me at least) of sold out venues to report. Vancouver has gone, tonight has gone, and many of the upcoming shows are getting close, so buying tickets now is probably a good idea. Looking further afield, the show in Amsterdam in November has sold out, while both London and Birmingham are days away from joining Manchester in the no-tickets-left aisle. Good times.

Not masses more to report for now, other than the fact that my boys the Sleeping Souls now have their own twitter feed, on which they are posting an alternative view of the tour shennanigans. Right, I’m off to Park Ave CDs for an instore!
