Hopefully this will find you well. Just a wee post to let you know what we’ll be up to in the coming months.
First of all, thank you to everyone who has come to see us recently! We’ve been very busy and the response has been incredible. Playing the BBC Introducing Stage at T in the Park, and at Belladrum have been rather special things indeed. Not to mention the Avalanche instore for the re-issue of our album on Fence Records. Also a massive thanks for the support from Tom Morton (who made us his album of the week on his BBC Scotland Show), Vic Galloway (for the same reason, not to mention his constant support), to Huw Stephens for countless plays on his Radio 1 shows recently, to Josie Long and Andrews Collins, and Gideon Coe for airplay on their BBC 6Music shows and to Gill Mills and Jim Gellatly for inclusion in their Amazing Radio playlists. We’ve filmed a Song, By Toad session that will be up in the coming months, too. We recently recorded a live, acoustic session and interview with Marion Scott for broadcast on Moray Firth Radio. That was just meant to be a wee update/couple of “Ta very much”es and it’s turned into an EFFING OSCAR SPEECH. I’m sorry. We really do appreciate it all. It’s been a bloody great year so far.
Footage and photographs of our set at T in the Park can be found here.
Second of all, we’re playing at the Liquid Rooms in Edinburgh on Sunday 14th August with Over the Wall and Admiral Fallow as part of The EDge Festival. Tickets for this show are close to selling out, so if you want a ticket, it’d be wise to get one here, now.
We’re off on tour with King Creosote in October/November to support the release of a double A-side single with the man himself, details of which will be revealed soon. We’ll be the support act for all of these shows, but will also be Kenny’s band for the 28th & 29th. Shows confirmed so far, are:
28th Oct Ceilidh Place, Ullapool
29th Oct Ironworks, Inverness
30th Oct TBA
31st Oct The Lemon Tree, Aberdeen
1st Nov The Cluny, Newcastle-upon-Tyne
2nd Nov Liquid Rooms, Edinburgh
3rd Nov Doghouse, Dundee
4th Nov Woodend Barn, Banchory
After these shows we’ll be playing a number of Scottish and English dates to be announced soon.
IF you haven’t already got it you can buy our new-released vinyl from the shop here. It’s rather beautiful. Every one comes with a CD of the album so you can be dead modern etc. http://www.kidcanaveral.co.uk/home/shop
We’ll be posting more news about shows and releases as soon as we can. Keep an eye on our ‘Live’ page for info on upcoming shows. We’ve got our first Glasgow and London shows for a while listed over here.
Hope you’re all well.
