Happy New Year!
Posted 10th January 2017
Happy New Year! We hope you had an enjoyable festive season. As ever, our great thanks for your support in 2016. It was great to get the new album, The Silent Majority, out there last year. And we were delighted with the reception it got. There was lots of touring too. Which went equally well. And festivals! Trips to the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany. All in all, a great year. And thanks to you for being part of it.
More of the same this year. We have announced our first batch of dates. This includes a large run of gigs in April. That will be our most extensive tour period of 2017. There will also be a small September tour too, to be announced later. And other gigs dotted throughout the year! In addition, we have arguably our best festival season to date coming up this summer. We can’t announce them all yet, but hopefully there’s enough here to whet the appetite.

As we mentioned, plenty more to be announced so keep your eyes peeled! We’ll update the website and various social media as we are allowed to announce the gigs. As well as UK dates to be announced, we will be heading abroad again this year. It’ll be lovely to head over to see our friends and fans on the continent once more. Such trips are always very memorable and enjoyable. Most notably we will be in Denmark, having begun our working relationship with the wonderful Henrik at Yellow House Bookings.
