To create a picture with no skill, is a hard fight to war
To envision a face and their inside fear, when before, never saw
With words that paint, click and line
When reach the ear, all is fine
Although Humble Sky was recorded 13 months ago! Can you believe, its been a huge feat that the we conquered by ourselves and few few close allies.
Until this summer we were totally alone in the music world, scratching our heads as to how we can release what we knew was a great body of songs, more commonly known as an album. How much longer the album lasts will be a test to the speed of the digital age.
Even the cat is shocked, how long it't taken!
Now, with a week to go and the reviews trickling through....Duh yeah we knew this was a great album and we have grown as songwriters and musicians, blah blah. Frustrating when you tell someone something and they don't listen ins't it?
Anyway, we are in the process of writing the third Bleech offerings and things are seeming beautifully organic and groovy at the moment, but that's for a future blog.
Sorry it has been a while since my last post, we have been (as I am sure you know) busy making teaser videos and full on official videos, to build up to Humble Sky.
Last year I think we toured twice in France our own headline shows and drove over nearly every weekend in the summer to play festivals. Giving us a nice live experience on big stages so that this year we are opening the main stage at Deer Shed Festival in North Yorkshire and lots more to come.
So as I said, things started to fall in place in the summer of 2013. We joined a new management company and are now in the safe hands of a lovely duo who also manage the likes of The Ravonettes and Dum Dum Girls....cool.
So this feels like our debut album really even though 'Nude' was great in it's own right...Humble Sky has more depth, more interesting arrangements and a greater idea of where we are live.
Is everyone going to be pissed of if we do a Radiohead and play no old songs live?....you can post your comments below ;)
UK tour and first big EU tour announced below. Tickets are selling nicely, which makes us feel good...you guys wanna see us again! This time bring your friends and we'll have a beer and a catch up. It feels like it's been a while UK...
The last time we played Switzerland we had a bit of trouble getting into the country, you know it's scary that swab they run over your palms...yeah you have no idea what stays in your blood stream and they can detect...eh Matt! So with our EU tour starting in Amsterdam, we may not reach the last gig.
Very exciting to be playing in cities such as Copenhagen and Vienna. It's very much a privilege getting to visit these places doing the thing you love most. I hope its something we don't one day take for granted. I wonder if Coldplay look out their hotel windows overlooking the Eiffel Tower. Gwyneth to Chris "Hey Hubby where are you now, I'm just doing my Pilate's" Chis - "Urgh, I dunno, oh there's that big tower blocking my view again, just three more nights at the Zenith to go and i'll be back with you baby".
Hahaha I'm being very judgmental assuming they do Pilate's...
So yeah, thanks for sticking by us and to those who pre-ordered the album. You guys rock a little bit more.
It's nice seeing some familiar faces on Facebook and we have had some lovely personal messages from a few with very kind words full of encouragement.
You know you can always feel free to drop us emails at email@example.com. We don't find it creepy, unless your email is creepy in which we most likely won't reply.
I hate to end on a plug...all bands seem to do is sell you things right?..."buy buy buy" our band are the best!
Well this is more of a passing comment, if you fancy purchasing the record you can head over to iTunes....but no pressure. When you don't know the words to the new songs at the gig, no-one will judge you. Honestly.
Peace and Love homies....see you on the road
