We are bringing 2012 to a close with our last live show of the year this Saturday at the Sound Music Venue in Cheltenham. We've been huddled away for the last few months, working on new material for follow up to the critically-acclaimed Liberation LP. We will be showcasing some of the tracks from the new album on Saturday as part of an extended set and selling Liberation at a one off price of five pounds. Support comes from the excellent Harry Jones. Tickets are three pounds and are available here. See you there.

We are thrilled to announce some very, very special guests for our South America single launch party at the 229 Club in London on Wednesday, July 18. The mighty Blue Rose Code, among the finest purveyors of modern Celtic folk on the scene today and on the verge of releasing a very highly-anticipated debut album, will be joining us. If you haven't heard the music, you owe it to yourself to check it out. If you haven't seen Blue Rose Code live, then you owe it to yourself to do so before the album goes stellar. It's a huge privilege to have such a talented singer, guitarist and songwriter as Ross Wilson on the same bill, not to mention his fantastic band. If that isn't enough, Cyrus "Hiatus" Shahrad will kindly be performing with us again on keyboard in a one-off appearance which will include the first ever live renditions of Change Up and Book of Prayer from our recent collaborative EP. It's going to be a cracking night, people. Hope you can make it. Tickets are available from See Tickets and the venue.

Earlier this year, the excellent R2 magazine gave our Liberation album a glowing 4* review, saying it was "a consciousness-raising collection" of "exceptional songs". This month, they have kindly featured an interview with us. You can check it out below.

You may remember in March, Paul and I embarked on a four-date tour with Thomas Dybdahl in the Netherlands. We had a great time, made a lot of new friends and played in amazing, sold-out venues. We chose a couple of tracks from some of the live footage of the tour to post up on our YouTube page. Liberation Theology, the lead track from our critically-acclaimed album Liberation, from the packed out show in Amsterdam at the incredible De Duif and a brand new song called Old Glory from the Den Bosch gig. Hope you enjoy them.
