We’re heading up to Cambridge with Rachel W. Photography again today to take some more promotional pictures to help promote the tour. We have already taken photos in Ipswich, Norwich, and Colchester (previously).
Our tour with Riot Act kicks off next week. There are still tickets available and we hope you are able to attend one of the following dates:
The new Falling Through Freedom t-shirts are being printed and sent out over the coming weeks, the patches will arrive later, which will mean everything is all caught up for 2021-22 before we can announce the next package. We are sorry for the delay in getting everything out this time, it has been a mammoth amount of recording, printing, and posting!
We’ve been working hard to push the FIRE DOWN UNDER tour with Riot Act. We are in effect the promoters of these events, so it’s on us to make these shows a success. We’ve booked venues we know are good in areas we know we can usually get decent crowds. Riot Act is coming from New York to do this tour, and we’re hoping to sell out all these shows for them when they are over. We’ve priced the advance tickets at just £8 to make it as affordable as possible. If you are yet to buy a ticket, you can do it from here: https://www.firedownundertour.co.uk/category/tour-tickets
Today we are having our second rehearsal following our successful tour with Chris Holmes. Last week (as seen above) we focused on rehearsing the songs we didn’t do on the tour and writing new material for a future release.
Today we head back into Unit One again for more rehearsals, we’ll be working on our set for Mearfest Flame in Nuneaton in September, and then our second tour of 2023 with Riot Act, who will be playing the entire Riot classic album Fire Down Under in full during the tour.
Tickets fore the Fire Down Under Tour are already selling well, with London already 20% sold months in advance of the show. If you wish to attend these shows, we advise you to book well in advance from here. Our last show at Three Wise Monkeys for example sold out in advance, and there were people who could not get into the venue on the night.
We will begin our tour rehearsals today at Unit One, Colchester. We will be putting together the set list for the tour today and look to get ourselves in the best possible playing shape for the run of gigs. On Friday we played our very last local show before heading out on tour.
We will be supporting Chris Holmes on this forthcoming tour. Chris is famous for being the original guitar player in W.A.S.P and played on all their classic albums. His set will comprise his own material as well as classic W.A.S.P songs. Tickets are limited and available to order from the links below:
Last nights gig supporting Trespass at the Quay Theatre, Sudbury was a huge success. We would like to thank both the Quay Theatre and Trespass for having us on, and treating us incredibly well throughout the night.
