We hope you’re all keeping well. It’s been a little while since we’ve been in touch, we’ve been busy trying to get all our ducks in a row - they keep trying to escape, those pesky ducks!
On the gigs front, we’re coming back to Europe for a short tour in October to try out some of the new songs in a live setting for you.
The shows we have lined up for you are:
8th October - The Grand Social, Dublin with Fat Baby Panda + The Crayon Set
12th October - The Islington, London with Fat Baby Panda
13th October - Delicatessen Zeeburg, Amsterdam with Fat Baby Panda
14th October - Haarlem - details tbc
Full information on these shows can, of course, be found on the shows page.
We’re going to be trying something new for this tour, with a very special guest on stage with us, so come and see how we fare.
We’ve also started a non-profit label to try and promote Irish music to the world. It’s called Rhinosaur Records, and the first release is a 3-track EP featuring ourselves, The Crayon Set and Fat Baby Panda, which you can download from here: http://rhinosaurrecords.bandcamp.com/ - feel free to share it with anyone who might like it.
At home, we’ve been retrofitting our merchandise laboratory, with a brand-new heatpress and professional grade transfers and inks. We’ve been a little concerned for a while about making sure our merchandise, though home-made, is top quality with improved longevity and colour-fastness. Given how many of you are nice enough to support us by buying it, we want to make sure you are getting an excellent product. And so we’re delighted to announce that our Left and Not Left socks are back on sale here: http://iamnotlefthanded.bandcamp.com/merch We’ve plans for new t-shirts and bags and anything else fun that we can put between two hot plates of metal (paninis?).
For those of you who are wondering about the physical release of The Fire & The Sigh, well we can’t tell you anything. But we can tell you that there might be something to tell. We just can’t tell it to you yet, the ink is not quite dry… But you guys will be the first to hear, we promise.
Millions of peaches,
- Kathryn, Daniel & Benji
