The Stranglers tour is over and what a blast it was!

The dust has settled after the recent The Stranglers tour and have to say in our 28 years of being a band, it has got to rank as one of the very best touring experiences we’ve ever had.

It was a real honour to be welcomed into The Stranglers family and to get to hang out and play with our heroes for 4 weeks. A brilliant band, on top of their game with a killer road crew and a very receptive audience, we were spoilt from start to finish. Big love & thanks to JJ, Baz, Dave, Jim, Gary, Louie, James, Luke, Andi, Pat, Andy, Ian, Merv, Kev, Rikki,Pete, Raphael, Damon, David, Richard, Bev and Anthony!

And of course to our own ‘dream team’ for making our shows effortless…Rich, Steve, Mark & Herb!

We thoroughly enjoyed playing the new song (“Callow”) at the shows and hope you’s all enjoyed us busting out “Innocent X” and “Lonely Cryin’ Only”. Looking forward to the festivals now and see you all soon with some more new album details 😉

2018 Update/News!

It’s been a busy and exciting start to 2018 for us so far. At the minute we are in the studio about halfway through recording album number fifteen (!!!) and things are sounding excellent. For this album we have reunited with Chris Sheldon as producer and we’ve been enjoying the creative and productive working atmosphere. Its likely you know Chris’s name from his sterling work on Troublegum/Semi-Detached/High Anxiety as well as albums by Foo Fighters, Biffy Clyro etc. Once we are done recording mid-February, Chris will mix the tracks with a plan to getting some new music out later in the year.

We’ll not be slacking as we already have a host of shows booked starting with a lengthy run around Eire/N. Ireland/Scotland/England/Wales with The Stranglers right through March. We don’t need to tell you that we are huge fans of the band and we’re really excited to be part of this great package. All the dates are listed HERE.

The Stranglers/Therapy? tour March 2018!

There are a couple of festivals in place already (more pending!), Bearded Theory in the UK plus the Rockavaria Festival in Munich and Street Mode Festival in Greece. Also note we have a short run of German club shows in the days prior to Rockaveria if you cant make the festivals.

German Shows 2018!

Anyway, once the album release date is confirmed we will be going out to do extensive headline touring of our own to promote the record and hopefully be swinging by somewhere near to you. As ever, keeping checking here for updates and of course we’re on the usual social media for more day to day updates and studio/tour bits and bobs…
