15th April 2010- Last night was the final date on our nine day UK tour. Despite the very real sensation that God was trying to finish us off with endless damage to vehicles, voices and one inconveniently-timed ruptured intestine, we managed to play every gig and have a great time. Fuck you God. We love The Sceptres and Sam Hunt. Some new photos have been added below.
We've begun recording a new 7" in Leeds which will be completed over the next few weeks. The wheels have also been set in motion for an album over the course of the summer.
13th February 2010- I've just finished making this website after about six painful hours of relearning html and trying to dig up photographs I should have labeled properly in the first place. Anyway, here it is- created mainly to replace the Facel Vega myspace page, an idea I've never really been fond of.
As for news, we have not played together as a band for close to a year now- the last time being in The Peanut Gallery, an autonomous social center in the Leeds University Union, where I'm currently studying. After a long time on hold, we are finally resuming, with a string of nine dates in the UK booked for April. We'll be practicing and writing new songs over the next couple of months in preparation.
