Gareth, when can we realistically (and I don't mean that to sound condescendingly if it does) expect to see full US tour dates in support of No Blues? Because I thought Hello Sadness ruined me when hearing most songs live, but I apparently was mistaken and need more.
It’s very difficult to see a way that we’ll be able to play in the States again. We all work day jobs, so realistically it’s very difficult to all be able to get the same stretch of time off work to travel abroad.
It’s also very difficult to plan an international tour when you’re working 9-5, Monday to Friday. On top of that, there’s the issue of cost. Touring North America is really expensive when you consider transport for 7 people and their instruments, plus insurance, flights and visas too! Hell, visas are really expensive, you need those to play a gig as a UK band in the States. I think not a lot of people realise the massive discrepancy between the cost of touring, and the amount of money your average band has.
I’m not complaining, because we’re lucky to be able to be a band in any form, and to have toured America so many times in the past. But you should know, if you’re disappointed we’re not coming to America, it’s 10 times more disappointing for us. Gx
We’re playing THE FLAPPER, BIRMINGHAM in November as part of the Dr. Martens and DIY Magazine #STANDFORSOMETHING tour. Just £5 a ticket, limited to 200.
If you’re in Birmingham there are 5 VIP pairs at the DM store in the Bullring, that you can pick up NOW. Or register for tickets here: http://www.drmartens.com/uk/uk-tour
