I’m back from my brief holiday. I walked the entire length of the South Downs Way – just over 100 miles through the hills of Hampshire and Sussex, from Winchester to Eastbourne. It was amazing, I heartily recommend giving it a go sometime. To top off my break, I also saw Refused last night in London, who were completely awesome, as expected. Anyways. Back in action now, and there’s some various bits of news for y’all to have a look at.
First of all, the Wembley DVD. This is being released in the UK on September 3rd. It will feature two discs – one with the full show, and one with Greg Nolan’s tour film and a bunch of other cool stuff. Details and preordering can be found here.
For people outside the UK, fear not! Firstly, you can always order the above package from Xtra Mile (although it will be a UK region disc). Beyond that though, the good folk at Epitaph are releasing a compilation CD called “Last Minutes & Lost Evenings“. This is a two disc set. The first disc is a compilation of what I consider to be my favourite songs from the releases before “England Keep My Bones”. It’s kind of a primer for new people coming on board in Europe, North America and so on. The second disc is the complete live show from Wembley, with region settings appropriate to wherever you are in the world. Details can be found here. This is being released on October 7th, though you can preorder it now. We are also working on getting the DVD extras from the UK release out to everyone further afield as well. And if you’re in the UK and fancy getting this release yourself, you can order it here.
Finally (for today), I’d like to remind people about my next London show on August 20th at The Roundhouse in Camden. It’s a benefit show for ABLE2UK, a great cause, and I’ll be playing a solo set; there are tons of other cool people playing too. Tickets are still available here.
Right, have fun everyone, see you soon.
