In Yanksville at the moment, at SXSW festival. It must be said this place is pretty horrible this time of year. Don’t get me wrong, Austin is a cool town and the actual real people at the shows are great, but this place is full of industry types, hipsters, wannabes, rockstars and the rest. Not really my cup of tea to be honest. But it’s great to be in the states and I can’t wait till we head out onto the great highway and start touring for real. Hanging out with Jonah and Josh is loads of fun too, and we’re playing with Steve Brodsky today, which is ace. We got ripped off by the promoter in San Antonio, which was shit (never play the Sanctuary, people), but otherwise the septics are ok, haha…
The UK tour dates are now up on the gigs page. I’m covering pretty much everywhere apart from Wales (not sure why that is, sorry). So enjoy. The support will be from Kid Harpoon and Jay Jay & The Pistolets, which is the best news I’ve heard all year. See you there.
A venue I’ve played many times over the years is under threat, and you should all help out in trying to save The Harlow Square. There’s a petition you should all get on with signing here: http://www.petitiononline.com/SHS/petition.html.
And don’t forget about the EP in May, we’ve finished the artwork and the B Sides and so on, and the video is getting edited at the moment, it’ll be posted up here as soon as it’s done.
