In the last blog post, I said we were going to be performing shows over July and August. This turned out to be true, however, only the August 12th show at the Garage remained the same. Unfortunately the Beretta Suicide gig in July was cancelled, and we were thrown asunder! Luckily the fine folk at Pivo contacted us, and offered a support slot for "Hopeless Heroic"! We gladly accepted, and this turned out to be a properly kickass evening! There were magnificent bands, there were awesome times, we even had to evacuate the building because of the level of glory!
We re-entered the venue, amidst a sea of junkies and confusion, and the evening carried on as before! A very kickass night indeed :D
In August we then played a show at The Garage Attic. This was supporting "The Maddigans" on their UK tour, and we played with "Picnic Basket Nosedive", "We Demand Action" and "White Light Theory", all very exceptional gentlemen indeed! We were really thankful to have been offered that support slot as it was an awesome night and we met some brilliant folk!
At some point between August and September, calamity struck. With difficulties running through the summer, we sadly parted ways with our lead guitarist, and good friend, Craig Lees.
Who then to fill his mighty shoes? It fell to our drummer, Mr John Tilbury, to step forth from behind the kit, and strike up his tasty Les Paul! His place on the stool was then filled by Matthew Doyle, who has brought new levels of awesome to our sound!
Our next show was in September, headlining one of the always kickass "New Hellfire Club Glasgow" nights! We've played a number of awesome shows at Pivo, and this was no exception! Fantastic bands, fantastic atmosphere, and a really great night all round! We also got a tasty review, located here - Oh my yes!
We had planned to take a break then, and focus on working with the new line-up and writing some new songs. But then we got an email from The Classic Grand, explaining that a support band had dropped out of the Hip Parade show, and wondering if we would like to take their place. We all decided that the break could wait, and jumped at this opportunity. So it came to be, that 5 young scoundrels took to the stage supporting one of Glasgow's liveliest, and most extraordinary bands! We got V.I.P. badges and everything :O
I feel that this was easily our greatest show to date! The venue was magnificent, the crowd was superb, the lighting and sound was epic and, not to be too modest, we were on excellent form :P
Met Rob Shah from Hip Parade after, and he was a truly genuine guy, utterly deserving of the fame and glory! Glorious night indeed!
So now... The future! We do not know yet what lies around the corner, what terrifying obstacle may be in our path next. We can but dream. We hope you've enjoyed the ride so far! We want to thank each and every one of you who has supported us so far, by "liking" our Facebook page, coming to see us play, or even by simply reading this and getting involved! We have been having a hell of a time, and we hope to see you again soon!
