Massive sympathy to anyone who is suffering or in distress right now. Compared to many, our worries are fairly minor.
It is with deep regret that we have decided to cancel the rest of our spring tour. We're pretty gutted as we had been planning and looking forward to this tour for some time, but we're grateful that we were able to play some shows at least. However we cannot with good conscience continue to host public gatherings in the midst of a public health crisis. We apologise for the short notice but we hope you understand.
This decision comes with considerable cost to the band, not only in lost earnings but money already spent on PR / merchandise / hotels etc. Our entire income for April and May has also disappeared now that festivals are cancelling or postponing, leaving us in a very precarious position. Additionally, some of that money was dedicated to the recording of our next album.
We love our fans, and for good reason - we've already had multiple offers of financial donations to keep the band going through this tough time, so we thought we'd set up a fundraiser (link at bottom of page) as an easy way to facilitate this. Our target of £7,500 would keep us out of hot water, but anything will help.
If you would like to contribute that would be awesome - no donation is too small, but please don't give more than you can afford! Sharing this page on social media will also help a great deal. We're looking at options for more merchandise, potentially some live tracks to download, videos, live-streaming gigs and more, so watch this space.
See you back on the road soon!
