Just a quick one before we shut up (rock) shop for the holidays to wish you all a very happy Xmas and New Year. From a 2016 band point of view we had a great run of “Infernal Love revisited” shows, a summer of killer festivals and most recently our 1st acoustic tour. There are already a few cool tours/shows in the pipeline for 2017 plus we’ll be writing and recording album #15 so do watch out for info on all of that as and when it happens. As always, thank you for your continued support of the band, you’re a wonderful bunch! Have a lovely festive time folks and here’s to 2017!
Apologies, the last remaining copies have all gone.
been asked by a few people, because of the very limited numbers involved, if it would be possible to pre-order the last remaining Gemil Boxsets. You can pre-order HERE, but please BE AWARE that it may take 6-8 weeks before you will receive the Boxset. We are at the mercy of Amazon (who have the remaining stock) as to when they actually send them back to us…and Christmas and New Year will interfere with matters. Obviously if we can ship earlier we will!! All parcels will be sent by courier or registered post.
Apologies, all the copies of this run have sold-out now.

Andy Cairns says: “There’s a Samuel Beckett influence on Tides. I used to live near the harbour in Dun Laoghaire, Ireland. I’d sometimes stay up all night to try to get inspiration for songs and often ended up going down to the pier and just look out at the waves. Later on, I found out that Beckett used to get a great deal of influence from that as well. I took that low point in my life and how I managed to dig myself out of it as an inspiration.
“The spark that lit the idea was a quote from his play Krapp’s Last Tape,” he adds. “It goes, ‘Spiritually a year of profound gloom and indulgence until that memorable night in March, at the end of the jetty, in the howling wind, never to be forgotten, when I suddenly saw the whole thing. The vision at last… the fire that set me alight.’ The idea was fortified after listening to Standing By The Sea by Hüsker Dü from their 1984 masterpiece, Zen Arcade.”
