Ooooh. I'm beginning to feel that time again in the air, that time around the time of record release when you're constantly doing something band-related and it all gets a bit crazy. It's exciting!
On Monday October 15th, the day of release, we've organised a special acoustic instore show with our old mates at Banquet Records. There's going to be songs old and new and it's going to be our first acoustic outing in ages so we hope you guys are going to join us. Advance tickets are available now at The Banquet staff's discretion. Banquet Record's page for the show is HERE and the Facebook event is HERE so please go add yourself. Banquet instores are always a hell of a lot of fun and over on the Facebook event there is a cool video from the last one we did, way back in 2009.
Speaking of the album, you guys have got less than a week to get your pre-orders in from us for the signed CD. Order direct from us and you get the CD Digipak version of the 'Sonic Boom Six' album signed by all members of the band for £9.99 including P&P! Pre-order before Wednesday 10th October to ensure that your album will be signed. Orders will be sent first class on Friday October 12th to arrive on 15th October release date! Please note that there is no t-shirt or merch bundle this time so get in there before it's too late to grab the signed copy of the album deemed "the sound of modern Britain'. Not my words Lynne, the words of Big Cheese! magazine.
