Current mood:artisticHi everyone,
How are you all?
It's about time for an update from us, isn't it? We've been a bit busy doing a few things behind-the-scenes - most exciting of all is that Angus has relocated and rebuilt the Whack studio, buying some crazy new gear that we can't wait to try out. Pre-production starts full-tilt mid-July.
We were quite honoured when it was announced last month that we were nominated for an APRA Award in the Dance Work of the Year category for '16'. APRA Awards recognise the songwriters of a track (as opposed to the performers), and they're voted on by other members of APRA, so it's really quite nice to be recognised by your peers. '16' is our fifth nomination in 4 consecutive years.
SHOWS SHOWS SHOWS!
As we'll be holed up in the studio for a few months we couldn't resist the urge to get out and play a few shows. We're heading back to the UK and Europe for all of September and we always have such a good time there so are looking forward to that. Dates to be announced soon.
Meantime we've got these Australian dates in the pipeline and of course hope to see lots of you there:
Sun Jun 20 - Rock & Race, Darwin
Sun Oct 24 - Armor All 600, Gold Coast
We're also popping up at the Dream Inc music workshop in Melbourne on Sun August 15. visit www.dreaminc.com.au for more info.
Hope you're all great and we'll post photos from the studio once we're down to the nitty-gritty!
