Word from Marcus on that Scottish Highlands tour
We’re focusing on making another album this year so we’ve decided to do a tour where we can get up close with people and road test some new song ideas. We wrote the first album by trying to play new songs live as much as we could – it’s a really helpful way to get to know a song, and to see if it has the legs that it needs to go on an album. It’s hard to tell sometimes when you’re in a small rehearsal room in Wandsworth…
We also love touring Scotland, going back to our Celtic routes, and wanted to take the chance to play some beautiful smaller towns that often get ignored on the more traditional touring routes. We figured that playing smaller shows would take us back to the beginning of our touring lives again, but we didn’t really figure that there would be so much demand in places like Orkney – we’re really sorry for anyone who wanted tickets but couldn’t get them. We think we’ve reached a bit of a tricky stage where we’re torn because we want to keep playing intimate shows, but we also obviously would like people who want to see us to be able to. So for now, all we can say is thank you to people who are planning to come along, and sorry to those who didn’t get tickets but suffice to say we’ll come back as soon as we can!
We just wanna play gigs – big and small, and we always will as long as we live!
