this is the news



We've had a bunch of press and stuff for the album. This ain't all of everything but meh, I ain't being paid to put this together, and I haven't had my breakfast yet. Use google if you want to find the one that called us "Quasi-drivel"!

Artrocker which gave us 3/5 stars, which you can buy off itunes/google play/amazon. here's our bit.






Rocksound did a review too, but i can't link cuz it's only available in paper form obvs. They said something along the lines of "nothing particularly wrong with this record, but then there's nothing particularly right about it either". Ronnie Radke was on the front cover:

We also got this, which I'll grant you, isn't an album review, but they said some real nice things about us:

now let me see...


we are BACK from tour. we had such a rad time, saw so many beautiful faces. made lots of new friends as well as catching up with old ones. pure class. spesh biggups for jason, ricki, lucy, alex, andy, chris, rainey, death pedals, chris (h), alan, kev, seb, ian and soooo many more. much love. and also much love to anyone who came to shows and/or bought stuff. you GUYS!

but now then, the fun ain't over yet. we have possibly our "biggest" ever show coming up at the lexington on september 6th as (main) support for derry post-hardcore legends JETPLANE LANDING. oh yeah. now i think the show sold out like well quick (obvs, after we were announced as being on the bill right?), but a little birdy tells me that they've released some more tickets and that, so GET ON IT!

how about i draw a line down the middle of your head so it looks like a butt?


new album seems to be going great guns, we've been getting a bunch of radio play, Tom Robinson, Steve Lamacq and Jen Long played us on BBC 6 Music and on BBC Radio 1! John Kennedy also gave us a spin on Xfm n'all. And I heard there might be even more on the way.

got some sooound reviews too, including an 8/10 in Drowned in Sound (other nice words said by folk at Sloucher, Keep it Fast, and loads more) but there's a bunch more press to come. luckily we've only had one really bad review that called us "quasi-drivel", but meh, led zeppelin didn't write music that everyone liked.

if you haven't got yr mitts on a copy of the new album you can get it in multiple ways, like from amazon and itunes and emusic and stuff. it's also on spotify and that. we recommend buying CDs direct from the distributor (cargo), but the tape version is only available through our bandcamp!

our tour in august is pretty much booked too. just waiting on one venue in edinburgh. there've been a number of venue changes and even city changes, but we've managed to fill every date so it's aaaall good [EDIT - 12.08.13 no we haven't]

we'll be doing a summer tour in support of our album too, UK and Ireland like. that'll fall in mid-august.

guess she don't like the corn bread either





















this is cover of our new album! it's due to be released on on june 3rd by the most excellent We Be Records (who also did our split with Death Pedals as well as tons of other rad stuff - check 'em out!). we'll be doing a launch show on May 4th at the Black Heart in Camden with some real good mates, where you'll be able to get advance copies of it. it'll be available on CD in a sexy digipack or on limited edition cassette tape, both with artwork designed lovingly by us. in fact there'll be an even more limited edition tape version too, with each one in a bespoke hand-crafted package. more details of that will follow.

prior to that we've got a couple of videos in the works - both for songs off of the album. one is being made my Mark Ludgate at All Aboard Films, and the other by Mike Woodman of the prog-tastic Thumpermonkey with assitance from noted rad lads Ash Jones and Mat Croft.

before all that though, we've got a couple of shows coming up in the coming weeks, one this saturday in Bristol, and a particularly awesome one recent BSM signings Axes at Birthdays in Dalston. check the listings up on the right there like.

also, check out this snippet of a show we played back on an extremely sweaty day back in september, expertly put together by Fear of DIY.
