Convention sell out!

November's convention weekend in London has now completely sold out in a little over a month! The full ticket allocation of 800 has all gone and it is highly unlikely that any extra tickets will become available. Although the Camden Centre quotes a capacity of 900, working personnel, security plus five bands and their crews will bring the event up to full capacity. Apologies to anyone who missed out on a ticket...

The band and their management are extremely pleased with the response to the event. It should be an amazing weekend!

Belgium/Holland acoustic details Neil Sparkes

The band are shortly off to the Low Countries for a six-date acoustic mini tour. They will be joined on stage for these shows by percussionist Neil Sparkes (shown right). Further details on Neil can be found here or here.

Stage times are 2130 for Zwolle and both Lessines gigs, 2100 for Zaandam and 2145 for Turnhout. At present, the stage time for Heerlen is unconfirmed but is expected to be earlier than the other gigs as doors open at 1830. All times are local and may be subject to change.

The band undertook a similar 'unplugged' tour in late 2007 and the Brugge gig was recorded and released on the CD The Meninblack In Brugge which is available from Mamstore here.
