New Video – ‘Three Years’ filmed on Ukranian Tour

Last year we went to Ukraine, we toured the country by public transport on a diet of sleeping pills during the day and buckwheat vodka after the sun went over the yardarm. It was intense and amazing. When we were out there we all shot a lot of footage and Dave our wrangler filmed some of the live shows. Here is the resulting product.

This is also the first sneak look at our latest recording session we completed recently with Ben from www.gotmics.com – the song is called Three Years and will be coming out properly over the summer

We will be posting our Ukrainian Tour Diary soon as a back story to the whole adventure….

cool shit we’ve been doing…. London Summertime

this month we’ve played some great shows – including the one in central london with our brothers crazy arm where a taxi caught fire and exploded outside the venue at stage time

 

anyway…..

 

the rest of the month we’ve been finishing the new record with the excellent Ben Standage who managed not only to get through the whole process but actually stood in on bass with us for our last tour with our OTHER plymouth brothers The Bedroom Project. Should be dropping soon so watch this space.

 

we’ve got some shows coming up with some bands we’re pretty psyched about, first up the first ever Disgusted in Tunbridge Wells festival at the forum with Lars Friedrickson (who played in a little known band called Rancid – among others) and the anti-nowhere  league which will be awesome. Then next weekend we are playing with our Milton Keynes brothers CAPDOWN (keith recorded our first EP, fact fans) at the crauford arms – looks like it’ll be a total roadblock so if you haven’t already got a ticket good luck – thats also with anti-vigilante as a bonus.

 

and the week after that, we are very proud to say we will be playing with The Kominas at the Old Blue Last. The Kominas – if you don’t know them – follow in the grand tradition of the Dead Kennedys and every intelligent punk rock band that followed and have been instrumental in the creation on the Taqwacore movement. We strongly advise you to check them out if you don’t know them already. So big times and shows all around.

 

Saturday 30th July: TUNBRIDGE WELLS FORUM with Lars Friedrickson, Anti No-where league & more STAGE TIME 4.30PM

Friday 5th August: MILTON KEYNES CRAUFORD ARMS with Capdown & Anti Vigilante

Thursday 11th August: OLD BLUE LAST LONDON with The Kominas,

new record out on safety second, keep your ears peeled

and don’t forget you can download some free songs of ours from our bandcamp if you can’t wait

maybe video soon too, forgot about that! 🙂
