Firstly we played a hometown show in Barry with a number of local bands. A big thanks goes to Joe for organising this show, our first in Barry for three years. Alot of local people we knew and former band members, and friends, showed up. We played our usual set plus a debuted a new song called "Trials" and a cover of "My Hero", both of which had an awesome reaction.
After a short sleep we travelled to Davey and Karoline's wedding at Coventry Cathedral. We played for everyone then at a venue nearby as part of the wedding reception. Alot of Davey's friends are hardcore kids so it went down fine, including with parents as well! We played a number of our own songs and then "My Hero" again, and covers by Nine Inch Nails and Bon Jovi. It was a great day, although we were missing Rob who had to work. After the show was the drive home with a stop for coffee and some deep spiritual conversations which were awesome.
Then we got together after sleeping and did a songwriting session, finishing off another new song which will be ready to be played at our next show (if we choose), which is at Hobo's in Bridgend on April 3rd with Lost Souls and Polar, two awesome bands.
We've confirmed 3 European festival dates as well for the summer, and will be booking dates running up to all of them. One of my favourite bands is headlining one of these three fests so as soon as they allow us to say we are playing, that will be great. Should be cool, and we'll announce all that soon.
