We’re half way through our touring schedule and have stopped at home for a breather before heading to Ireland on Friday. We’ve had an amazing few weeks, first on board our canal boat to Glastonbury, then touring the beautiful highlands of Scotland. We made a video diary for ‘The Line Of Best Fit’ whilst we were on the water, and you can now see all three parts over on the Heavenly website HERE. We’ll be making a full film of the journey, just as soon as our feet touch the ground, so watch out for that.
We’ve had lots of great news whilst we’ve been away — lots of radio play across Europe, and some great album reviews. Our Glastonbury show was chosen as one of Q magazines’s top 25 performances of the festival, which can’t be bad! We’ve just seen the 12″ yello vinyl for the first time and it looks wonderful! There’s still time to order yours from Rough Trade to receive a bonus copy of our ’11 Nights Under Tin’ tour film.
If you’re a Londoner, I hope you’ve spotted one of our ‘Quality First, Last & Forever’ posters around town this last week. If you spot one, take a pic and post it on our facebook page HERE to win a limited edition screenprint. And don’t forget to follow us on twitter to see what we’re getting up to on our travels HERE.
We’re off now to Ireland, to support Fionn Regan on his tour and to do a few other shows too, one of them supporting the Vaselines in Belfast which we’re very excited about! We’ll be back late July for a nice load of festivals; Port Eliot, Truck, Kendal Calling, Cambridge Folk, Boardmasters and Green Man, then we start heading to Europe in the Autumn, including a very special Paris show with Ron Sexsmith! So we do hope to see you along the way. As always visit the shows page HERE for details of all shows.
