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.
We are preparing to return to playing live shows for 2022 during our rehearsal sessions at Unit One, Colchester today. The first gig is at Club85 Hitchin and tickets are available here.
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!
Tickets: £6.50 + 10% booking fee or £8 on the door
Tickets are available from …
Age: 16+ with photo ID – younger patrons can be signed in at the door and accompanied for the duration of the show by a responsible adult.
Earplugs are available upon request (50p).
Downstairs bar open until 1am.
Like all our gigs this show finishes well in time for the last trains North and South to Cambridge/Peterborough and London and we are just a 5 minute stroll from the station.

We’ll be joined by our former bandmate Ant Murch who will be with us preparing for our CODA show, also in March.
We have announced our first run of shows for 2022! We’ll be returning to a number of regular haunts as well as a new venue. One Eyed Toad Records have graciously booked the majority of these dates for us where we will be playing alongside our friends in Neverworld and Planet Fatale.
- March 4th, 2022 – Club 85, Hitchin
Tickets are already on sale for this show here. This is our first show back at Club 85 since September 2017 and the first ever with the current line-up. The last time we played at the venue was the only time the band ever played the single “Holding the Line” live and was the very same day they recorded it at Threecircles Recording Studio. The single is now included on the latest prints of the A Crisis of Faith albums.
- March 9th, 2022 – CODA, Colchester
We played a show at CODA for the first-time last year, which was the band’s first gig without Covid restrictions since the Pandemic began in early 2020. Lead guitarist Toby Woods is unavailable for this date so will be replaced by a guest guitarist which will be announced soon.
- March 18th, 2022 – Portland Arms, Cambridge
Another venue we haven’t played in several years, the last time being back in October 2016. Much like with Club 85, this is our first gig with the current line-up, and we’ll be joined by Raze who will replace Neverworld at this event. Raze are another great band, so well worth checking out this unique line-up on the night.
- March 19th, 2022 – The Carlisle, Hastings
The last time we played here was for Mearfest back in December 2017 with the A Crisis of Faith line-up. A fun fact about this venue, is due to the local Councils zealous enforcement of parking restrictions we have had parking fines every time we have loaded into the venue in the past.
- March 26th, 2022 – The Rock Den, Hatfield
We had been the resident band at The Rock Den back in 2016 having played there regularly in the years previous, however this will be our first performance at the venue since 2018 and only our second with the current line-up! We are very much looking forward to returning this year and entertaining the massive once more.
- April 22nd, 2022 – Tap N Tumbler, Nottingham
This is a brand-new venue for us! We haven’t played here before but we did play Martin Shorts Badass Bash in Nottingham at the Maze all the way back in January 2014 with The Waystone line-up of the band.
