Apologies for the radio silence since April, chaos has reigned ever since the album came out. Not that we haven’t been busy – we’ve been gigging constantly ever since, including a hugely fun appearance at the Rebellion Festival!!
Anyway, we’re back, we’re doing stuff, and we have a big announcement….
THE KINGCROWS ARE ON VINYL FOR THE FIRST TIME.
Yes, Brute Force And Ignorance is coming out on 12″ plastic!! Y’see, when we were kids, you were only a proper band if you had a record out. There’s something mystical about a real live vinyl album. CDs are convenient, but LPs are important. And now we’ve done it. And not just that, but we figured if we were going to do it we might as well go mad with it, so it’s on Neon Green vinyl. It’s limited to 250 units, it’s selling for £15 a go (plus postage) and it comes out on 1st December. Preordering is up on the Emporium Of Stuff right now. Go on, you know you want to!!
So it’s coming up to the end of the year and we have three gigs left. Firstly we’re in Coalville, Leics at the Victoria Bikers Pub this Saturday (30th November) headlining a bill featuring Born To Destruct, Mispelt, Leftovers, Disowned and Cracking At The Seams. It’s an early start (first band on at 5.30, we’re on at 9.30 and the whole thing finishes at 10.20), and it’s free in!! Six top bands for NO MONEY.
Then we’ve a busy weekend to finish the gigging year – Friday 13th December sees us back at Westgate 23 in Heckmondwike to play their Christmas punk bash with Vomit and Eye Licker. Again, it’s free in, and the punk shows at Westgate 23 are always utter mayhem, so don’t miss it!!
The next day (Sat 14th), we’re honoured to be on the bill for the annual Leeds Punk Rock Christmas alldayer at the Brudenell Social Club. We had to pull out of last year’s, so we’re really looking forward to finally doing the thing!! This year’s bill is an absolute stormer too: GBH, Cyanide Pills, Duncan Reid & the Big Heads, Geoffrey Oi!Cott, Knock Off, the Kingcrows, the Swindells and the Allergics. It’s a hell of a way to see the year out!! See ya down the front!!
