A bit of a belated update, but we got there in the end…
Firstly, massive thanks to everyone that came down early to watch us at The Guildhall in Portsmouth with Feeder. Despite us being on early, it was great to see so many people down the front getting in to it. Needless to say, Feeder were on top form as usual!
We’ve got a few local shows coming up before Christmas, including playing at Rodney Parade before the Newport County v Luton Town match. It’s a personal favourite for me as I’ve grown up an Exile, so it’ll be great to bring my 2 big passions together in one night and hopefully have 3 points in the bag as well as a top gig!
We’ve just set up our online shop. Grab a tee before they all go at: www.theboyroyals.bigcartel.com
What a weekend that was! Massive thanks to everyone that came down early to the Simon & Oscar acoustic shows in Swansea and Pontypridd. We even managed to sneak in a cover of Cast’s ‘Guiding Star’ which was good fun to play, only made better by everyone singing along! We’ve got an iPhone recording of it that will be making it’s way on to the web in the next couple of days.
Next up, we’ll be hitting Portsmouth, Guildhall tomorrow night with our fellow Newportonians Feeder and then a headline show at The Factory in Porth on Friday. We’ve got plenty of other shows coming up also, so head to the live section of the site to see when we’re near you.
We’re pleased to announce that we will be supporting fellow Newport rockers Feeder at Portsmouth, Guildhall on November 20th. After we played with them at their sold out show in Cardiff earlier this year, the band have invited us back and we couldn’t be happier to accept the invitation.
The acoustic shows with Simon & Oscar (Ocean Colour Scene) have also been rescheduled to the 16th and 17th November after Simon fell ill to a throat infection. Tickets are available from here.
We have more gigs in the pipeline that are waiting on confirmation, hopefully over the next week, so keep checking this site!
Exciting times! We’ve spent the past week up at the amazing Monnow Valley studio’s in Monmouth, recording 3 new tracks, with our good friend Tom Manning. Of what we heard upon leaving the studio, we’re hugely excited to be showing you the new tunes and can’t wait to hear the final mixes ourselves! In other news, we’re very happy to announce that we’ll be playing two very special acoustic shows with Simon & Oscar of Ocean Colour Scene next month! The dates are:
Tuesday 23rd Oct: Muni Arts Cente, Pontypridd
Wednesday 24th Oct: Sin City Swansea
