We just can’t hold our excitement on this!
We’ve just applied to play in the famous South by Southwest (SXSW) festival in Austin, Texas. This means that if we are selected we will be flying all the way to America to play a gig at the world’s most famous music festival.
We initially got the idea for this festival from a couple of friends who were visiting bass player Martin from the States. They mentioned this festival to us and really encouraged us to play there. So we did a bit of research and after a little while we went for it and applied to play!
We’ll know if we are selected to play there in January.
But this is great news for many of our supporters and fans in the US. We had started mailing out CDs in 2007 and making friends there via social networking. And given that two bandmates have never been to the US before, this really is very exciting news for us.
Wish us the best of luck!
