German Tour

We’re back to work this week, starting with our first show at White Trash in Berlin.  We’re looking forward to big burgers, lots of sausages and some super shows in venues that we mostly haven’t played before.  We have our new single ‘Mockingbird/Down to the woods’ along with us for exclusive sale at the shows.  Is it big coat weather in Germany yet?  We’re about to find out.

Cheers and hope to see you on the road!

Mockingbird Video

We had a great first half of the year touring across France, Switzerland, Germany and the Czech Republic.  For the new single Mockingbird we put together this video of tour footage.  Hope you enjoy watching it as much as we did making it!  The single is available to buy through our website or through Beast Records in Rennes.  We’re getting ready to hit the road again in October, starting with 10 dates across Germany and then back to France in November, so we’ll be seeing all your smiling faces again very soon.

Postcards from France, March 2013

Wow, I’ve been back in Milan for two days and I’m still on a high from our tour in France.  Both completely buzzing, and also about ready to collapse from exhaustion after the long days at work since I got back, so I think I’m going to spend Easter on the sofa eating cake and trying to do as little as possible.  Well maybe I will work on a new song that I wrote in my head during the drive back from Chambery on Monday morning.

I think all three of us left a little part of our hearts in France this March.  We were received with such enthusiasm and hospitality everywhere we went, the shows were brilliant, and after 3,700 kilometers of driving we left already excited to come back in June for another round.  Special thanks to Beast Records, Seb & Alex, Slim Mitch, Franck, Headsucker & Emma, Dimi & Sof, Gui and all the venues and the bands we played with, Head On, Bed Bunker, Tulla Larsen, The Strong Come-ons, The Mythomans, Aurelien Blues Band & the Denyals.  Merci à vous !!

Last Rehearsal

Hello! Here we are at our last rehearsal in the studio just outside Milan this morning.  We are sure going to miss our morning coffee at the best coffee machine in the city.  It’s more like coffee flavoured water than coffee actually, but for some reason it has become an integral part of our rehearsal routine.

I think we are pretty much ready.  We’ve bought some new stuff to make us even louder than before (much), attempted to pack it tetris-style into the car (it fits, just), and written and re-written the set list.  We’ve had a run through of the Beasts of Bourbon song that we’re going to play with Head On next Saturday at Mondo Bizarro (that’s the 16th), and run through the song that we think Headsucker is going to ask us to play.

This weekend I’m going to stock up on car snacks and neurofen, get all the merch sorted out and packed up, and decide how many different outfits I can possibly fit into my bag.  Writing new songs has taken a back seat for the moment because there just hasn’t been the free time to concentrate on them.  Nonetheless, we have a couple already added to the set.  We’ll be playing the entire album in our show, all 10 songs.  I’m rather pleased about that.

Looking forward to seeing you on the road next week if you are in France!  Come and say hello, or bon soir as the case may be.

Bisous from us
