Gig updates and Recording News!!

Ok, some good news and some bad news. First the good news.....We've finished recording 3 new tracks which sound amazing in my ears, our Stoner Rock sound subverted a little by some NWOBHM and Old School Thrash vibes. Should be available next week after mastering is complete for free download, call it an early Xmas present!!! 
 Now the bad news.....Our December the 1st BOTB gig at Bogiez has been rescheduled and unfortunately we're unable to make the other Semi final heat dates, so we're out of the competition. Good luck to the other bands though.
But on a positive note, our gig in January is confirmed at the Full Moon, details on facebook :

We'll be heading into the studio at the end of this month, to record 3 new tracks. Yes 3 brand new songs, in time for Christmas.

The current plans are to record 'E is for existence', 'Dysthymia' and 'Viva La Burn'. The new stuff is sounding quite old school Thrash in parts, some still with a Stoner groove so watch out, we'll be posting the finished tracks for Free download in December!!!!

Autumn Update - Recording / Gig News

Hi, Here is a quick update for October.

We have booked some studio time with our good friend Meirug Hailstone from Reel Time Studios in November to hopefully record 3 new tracks, including our self titled song 'Viva La Burn', 'E is for Exsistence' and one new track which is yet to be decided but possibly an old school Thrash Sounding one.

We're currently trying to reschedule our Bristol 'The Croft' gig which is no longer happening on Nov 4th as I understand. We will be playing Bogiez (Cardiff) again shortly after getting through to the semi finals of the Molten Magazine Battle of the bands!

Stay tuned for more details soon!

Gig Report - Friday 4th May Roath Rocks

Friday's gig was amazing, a packed venue, a great crowd. A good first gig all in all, the Gower seemed like a really cool pub, a bit of a hidden gem even if it did have the smallest house drum kit we've ever seen!

Thanks to Wayne from Roath Rocks and Callum Ross and the Scarlets for letting us use their amps, and for a nice bit of rock n roll old school style.

Also thanks to Natalie Clements for the video stills from the gig video.
