Gigs and Shows a Go-Go! Flatline Viral Vid!! Boom Rarity Surfaces!!!

Hey guys

Our super-duper London headline extravaganza is just over a fortnight away. Your attendance is absolutely mandatory by the way. In addition to the awesome Dead Formats, Hype Theory and Alt Track, we've added XFM's Rich Walters spinning records throughout the night. We're currently confirming a couple of special guest vocalists coming to add their dulcit tones to tunes they appeared on from the Boom back catalogue. As well as that, we've been rehearsing this past weekend and a certain David Brent reggae tune is sounding rather wonderful indeed. We're too good to you. If you don't live in London, you know where to go...

Elsewhere on the worldwide web, I woke up this morning and a character called Aiden Selwood had forwarded me this little video he'd made for 'Flatline' off the new album. With live footage of SB6 and tons of coverage of the 2011 riots off TV, Aiden's done the song proud and I thought it was worth a good share. Check it out! HERE :D

Also making itself known on the internet this week is a massive Boom rarity. This is 'The GASH guide to GASH parties', a spoken word manifeseto over a dub backing by Extra Love featuring Barney and Laila K. We recorded this a while back for our friends at the GASH collective who are a huge part of the North West music scene as well as a vital sound system and champions of the free party ethos. If the player doesn't appear in your browser, check it out HERE.

And that's that for this week. We're gonna be trying out our new set at a show in Poole at Mr Kyps this Friday and then this weekend it's the Hit The Deck Festival. We're going to be rocking the O2 Academy Bristol 1 on Saturday April 20th 2013 as well as The Main Hall of Rock City, Nottingham on Sunday April 21st. We're gonna be doing some acoustic stuff and some pre-show interviews too so keep your eyes peeled. Hit The Deck, here we come!

Until The Sunlight Comes...
