“Infernal Love” at Sonisphere 2014

Delighted to have been asked back to Sonisphere UK to perform “Infernal Love” in its entirety. Our “Troublegum” show there back in 2010 was a special night indeed and we are very much looking forward to playing our 1995 fan favourite at the UKs premier rock festival. See you all Sunday July 6th 19:20 on the Bohemia stage, red frilly shirts optional!

Doors and running times for the “TG20″ shows in April. Note that there might be slight changes on the day but take these as pretty much set in stone. Also note Nottingham and Glasgow are earlier than the rest and the Glasgow show has MOVED from the Classic Grand to the GARAGE (yes, we know the poster below says otherwise!)

“Troublegum” & “Infernal Love” ‘deluxe editions’ more info and pre-order

“Troublegum” and “Infernal Love” are getting the UMG ‘deluxe edition‘ treatment (as you can see we’re in some good company there) and scheduled for release on Monday March 31st 2014. The releases coincide with the 20th anniversary of “Troublegum” and we will be doing a short UK “TG20” tour to celebrate. The cd PRE-ORDER is up now (iTunes preorder “TG“, iTunes preorder “IL”) and there’s also a chance to win tickets and a pre-show ‘meet & greet’ at one of the UK April shows.

We also have a limited run of autographed copies of them available on our official webstore. We will ship worldwide as well!

Original albums remastered by Harvey Birrell (Pleasure Death, Nurse, Gemil Box) NB. The “TG” and “IL” remasters are the same versions that appear in “The Gemil Box”.

Bonus discs of b-sides, remixes & live tracks all remastered at Abbey Road. “Troublegum “ discs 2 & 3 compile the “Short Sharp Shock”, “Face The Strange”, “Opal Mantra” eps and the songs from the “Nowhere”, “ Trigger Inside”, “Die Laughing” and “Isolation” 7”/12”/cd/cassette singles. “Infernal Love” disc 2 compiles the “Loose”, “Diane,” “Misery” and “Bad Mother” 7”/cd/cassette singles.

Expanded artwork put together from the bands personal archive by Curt Evans (High Anxiety, Never Apologise, One Cure Fits All, Scopohobia).

Extensive sleeve notes by writer Paul Brannigan (Kerrang!, Q, Rolling Stone, “This Is A Call:Life Of Dave Grohl”, “Birth School Metallica Death” author) featuring a new interview with Andy Cairns discussing the writing, recording and touring of the albums.

Both albums will be available digitally (iTunes etc) on March 31st as well. Please note these releases are a UMG UK & Ireland inititative/release at the minute so its up to the other countries labels to chose if they want to ‘domestically’ release them. If they’re not available in your locale, that unfortunately is out of our hands. Also note a few people have asked will there be vinyl re-issues of these…again, this is up to UMG and as far as we know they have chosen NOT to do a vinyl version of either at this point in time.

Adios 2013!

Folks,
Just signing off for the year and it’s been another cracker. Cheers to you all for
the continued support be it buying an album or shirt, coming to a gig or simply
spreading the word to fellow music fans. Also big thanks to everyone who bought
the boxset, we put a lot of time and effort into that to make sure it was a bit
special and so far you’s all seem to love it. Phew.

Next year should be a busy one…we’ve some expanded re-issues coming out of
“Troublegum” & “Infernal Love” plus a short “TG20 tour” and then some great
festivals lined up. Album number 14 is also in the works so expect it towards
the end of the year plus touring for that. Other than that, thanks as always for
all your support and feedback, have a safe and fun Xmas wherever you are and see
you all in 2014!
