We will be back at Unit One today for rehearsals, with Rage now firmly on the way to recovery from his recent illness. We will be working on a mixture of material, as we were last week, working on songs from the new EP and our set for the gig at Melbourn Rock Club next month. You can watch us working on adding songs to the set and material for the new EP on the link above.
We will be in Unit One Studio’s today to work both on the 22′ EP for Patreon and to prepare for our Ipswich show on May 13th. Uridium have had to pull out of the support slot for the Ipswich show due to singer Phil Cooke having a serious health issue. We wish Phil a speedy recovery and send our thoughts to his friends and family at this time. Replacing Uridium will be Screaming Viridian.
Last week we made good progress with two of the 22′ EP songs in rehearsals taking us up to 3 of the 5 learnt already. We rehearsed the new EP immediately after recording guitars for the 21′ EP which can be seen below.
Tickets are available on the door for the Ipswich show, you can find the full details here.
We will be playing the Tap ‘N’ Tumbler tonight in Nottingham alongside Neverworld and Planet Fatale. This is our first appearance at the venue and our first gig in Nottingham since 2013. We will be doing songs from Reforge The Steel, Falling Through Freedom, and our new album After Extinction.
On Sunday we will be back home in Colchester tracking guitars for the 2021 Patreon EP with Wayne Thompson. We have five new songs for that EP which will be a CD exclusive for our Patreons only.
Despite it being the Easter break we are heading back to Unit One in Colchester today for rehearsals in preparation for our show at the Tap’N’Tumbler in Nottingham next week on the 22nd. It’s free entry and you can find more information on the event here. This is our last gig with Planet Fatale and Neverworld as part of the One Eyed Toad tour.

Neverworld return to Club85 with a new line-up, a new release and a new show.
“Neverworld remind us all of what heavy metal is all about. At a time when we seem fixated on the next big subgenre or the ‘scene’, here is a band that have metaphorically stuck two fingers up and said, ‘we just want to rock’. And for that, Neverworld should be applauded…”
Death Valley Knights
“DVK appear to combine the power of traditional metal with contemporary sensibilities, blending razor sharp solos with big riffs and even bigger choruses”
Dark Heavy Rock from Cambridge fused with blues, stoner and alternative metal influences.
Traditional heavy metallers from Essex!
