03:09 am - Update #2
Myself and Jon have been hard at work in the studio, writing and recording some songs before hitting the road.

The song "Logical" has been completed and is an electronic experimental pop number with a hook to die for. Vocoders ahoy! We are thinking of selling this one to the Pet Shop Boys.

The song "If i only had one wish" is full of lush pianos and accoustic guitars and an accoustic solo from myself!

The song "Without Goodbye" was played at the Christmas gig and was well recieved and is now being worked on in the studio. It is sounding very spanish! TRUMPETS and STRINGS! Accoustic fiddling!

The song "In the city of shadows and silence" is a slow burner with urban edgy drums and an outro to die for. Look out for some contemporary dance elements in the production of this essentially rock based song.

The song currently titled "Reprise" is another piano and strings track with a lot of potential.

The song currently titled "A Simple Pop Song To Say I Hate You" does exactly what it says on the tin.

Other songs lined up are 37 this morning, Wishful Thinking and The Death of VHS.

The venues for the August tour are being finalised but it has been confirmed that local punk group The Cherries will be supporting at the majority of the local gigs. The gigs will be split into half which a Rock and a Pop section.

Thank you for all of your support and i hope that you are all ready for the summer.

Love to everyone single one of you,
Love Dave x

03:16 am - Everything has meaning.....
A lot has happened over the last few months.

Drummer Ron Howard has left the band my mutual consent and a new band member has been recruited in his place. Stay tuned for news on that. Howard is likely to join August Tour support group "The Cherries".

The new material is flowing and myself and Jon are going into the studio to work on some of this tomorrow. New songs include -

The Death of the VHS
I wasn't made for this world
In the city of shadows and silence
I wanna be radioactive
Wishful Thinking
Golden Grahams
Conveyor Belt
Stand Tall (Make a Stand part 2)
Second Sight

Thank you for your continued support and we can't wait to see you on the tour!
