Live DVD Recording, New Video, and More...

Hi folks,

Firstly we'd like to say thank you to everybody who has picked up a copy of our new album 'The World Is Yours' and to everybody that came along to our recent UK gigs. The tour was by far our most successful so far so once again THANK YOU!

The success of the tour has prompted us to arrange another outing in the UK later this year, probably in November so watch out for news and updates on any of our pages/sites. 

THIS SUMMER: LINTON FESTIVAL & LIVE DVD RECORDING @ THE GUILDHALL, DERBY!!

The day after our appearance at Linton Festival on June 21st, we've decided to record and film a one-off show on June 22nd at the Guildhall Theatre in Derby!! 

The Guildhall is a beautiful intimate venue and we will be performing two sets, one of which will have a distinctly acoustic flavour and one will be more akin to the usual Union experience. Tickets are on sale from 15th April so we'd love you to be there and to help us make this a memorable and special occasion.



VIDEO SHOOT FOR 'TONIGHT I'M ALIVE'

We've just shot a new promo video for 'Tonight I'm Alive' featuring the British actress Emma Rigby who starred in the BBC drama 'Prisoner's Wives' and won several awards for her portrayal of Hannah in 'Hollyoaks'. The video is quite unlike anything we've done before and has a twist at the end but we're not allowed to say what it is..........

In the meantime here's a snap from the set of Luke & Pete with Emma...



SPRING T-SHIRT SALE!!

With everything else that's going on at Union HQ we nearly forgot to tell you but if you head on over the our online store you'll find there's a few Springtime bargains to be had including both shirts from the most recent tour. Go on, treat yourselves; you know you want to!



That's it for now. Hope to see you at one of the shows in June, until then, stay safe!

All the best,

Luke & Pete.

We want to say a HUGE THANK YOU to all of you who have already purchased the album via our PledgeMusic campaign. You have helped fund the project and your sterling efforts have enabled us to make what we feel is our best album to date!

We're really looking forward to seeing loads of you out on the road next month and we hope you all love the album as much as we loved making it!!

See you soon,

Stay safe,

Luke & Pete.

 

IMPORTANT UPDATE FROM THE UNION!!!!!

IMPORTANT UPDATE FROM THE UNION!!!!! Please share this announcement;

Following our curtailed show in London last night due to Peter being taken ill with a heavy bout of flu, we have been regrettably forced to postpone all remaining dates of our UK tour. 
Taking into account medical advice and the fact that we have no wish to put on a Union show that is sub-standard in any way, we have taken the difficult decision to reschedule the shows. We will announce the new dates as soon as possible. We are extremely disappointed as the tour was proving to be our most successful to date but under the circumstances we feel we have no choice.
Peter and the band would like to thank everybody for the all the messages of support received and we promise to make the re-scheduled dates as special as possible.

We will let you know any further information as soon as possible.

Thanks again for your patience.

New Album and Tour Update

Hello folks,

THE NEW ALBUM

We're delighted to say we have officially finished our new album 'The World Is Yours'!!!



Once again a very large THANK YOU to all of you who have 'pledged' on the album and secured your copy already.

Speaking of which, our PledgeMusic campaign recently passed 200% of our funding target so once again your support has exceeded all expectations; we are two very pleased and humbled musicians and we believe your help has contributed to our best album yet.

WELL DONE EVERYBODY!!!

Our PledgeMusic campaign has to close on December 22nd so if you haven't 'pledged' yet CLICK HERE to get involved while you still can!

THE UK TOUR

On February 13th next year we're heading out on the road for our first headlining UK tour in a year so we'd love to see you all down the front singing along with the new songs (and the old ones too obviously!).

Tickets are selling very well so if you don't want to take the chance of missing out, you know what to do....



That's all for now folks so if we don't see you before have a VERY HAPPY XMAS & NEW YEAR and we hope Santa brings you everything you desire!!!!

All the best,

Luke & Pete
