We're back again to squeeze in one last piece of news before the month is out. And it's quite a big one actually. We have a new single out today! Woohoo!
“I Never Will Marry” is a traditional tale of lost love. There's been lots of versions of the song, usually the protagonist’s lover has drowned in the sea and she follows him in to join him (cheery!). Our version is more optimistic, the protagonist is saved by another woman who tells her that her lover lives on in her heart. Apologies for the spoiler.
It has been described by us as 'atmospheric and dark, scattered with blistering instrumentals, powerful female harmonies and stomping rhythm'. We hope that others think the same, but as you're yet to hear it we're yet to find out.
It's accompanied by a beautifully cinematic new video made by our lovely Kate Griffin. If Kate's flawless videography doesn't sell it to you, you can also see us all looking windswept and interesting, with very chilly toes on a beach on Bridlington, whilst we pretend to sing and play musical instruments.
The single is available to download or stream here. We hope you like it and if you do we'd really appreciate it if you could give it a buy or a save or a share or whatever is most relevant to the platform of your choosing.
We're also thrilled to announce today that we'll be hitting the road in September 2021 in a UK tour covering all four corners. We are particularly excited that once again we will be able to bring you what you've all been missing so much over the last year - reviews of service stations and Premier Inns.
But if you're more interested in hearing some music than pithy remarks on low budget touring, please buy your ticket here and you should probably skip to the end.
If you're still reading, and as yet not sold, we'll keep plugging. There'll be lots of new music, as well as the old favourites. It really would make us very happy bunnies if you could get booking and spread the word! We'd love to see you there.
And if that doesn't tempt you, cue sob story, as some of you might remember, our last tour was abruptly curtailed in March 2020 in a Travelodge on the outskirts of Birmingham. We're picking up 18 months later, slightly more destitute but more bright-eyed and bushy-tailed than ever before - not eagled-eyed and bushy-tailed as I thought the expression went until a couple of minutes ago. Thank goodness I checked, wouldn't have wanted to make a fool of myself.
On that note we'll end the rambling and sum up, we'd really like it if you could listen to our new single and buy a ticket for the tour. And we very much hope that you enjoy both.
Have a very happy May, we'll see you next month!
