What A Year!
Looking back; 2018 has been a wild ride for sure! We kicked off the year with the release of a free download single 'Gold & Blue' and a 6 date UK headline tour which included highlights like O2 Academy Islington and Night & Day Cafe. We followed this up with a run of dates in spring which included a show with Shalamar Friends at Huddersfield Town Hall and a return to Scotland. Both tours got a lot of love in the local newspapers thanks to working with some great PR teams. We spent the summer writing and recording (the fruits of which will come out early in the new year!) and during this time we became a 5-piece once more as James Esaw joined us on bass. In Autumn we released our second single of the year 'Office Romance' which received a lot of radio love across the country on small radio stations and community radio outlets. It has quickly become our most streams track! In October we did a tour support for a sensational American band called Smokey Brights, what a brilliant week that was!
Possibly the highlight of the year came in November when we played to 1000s at Don Valley Grass Bowl for Hallam FM, we also completed our last headline gigs of the year including returns to the North East and the Capital before playing our hometown headline at The Leadmill. In December we joined The South for two support shows including a return to our beloved The Picturedrome, Holmfirth.
We're now taking some downtime for xmas but will be back in the new year, A big thanks to everyone who's been to see us this year, bought t-shirts and cds or reviewed us or supported us online!
