FREE Download - Make Up Your Mind (Summer Mix)

Yes folks, it's British summertime (cold, damp and grey!!) so to get you in the mood we're pleased to offer you a FREE download of a brand new summer mix of 'Make Up Your Mind'. Our good mate Rupert Coulson twiddled the knobs and came up with this new slant on the single version we released earlier this year. We figured as most of you already have at least one version of the song we'd give this one away to celebrate the arrival of festival season and (hopefully) better weather!

Enjoy!
All the best,

Childline Rocks - USA - July 8th 2012

Luke and Peter along with Danny and Ben from Thunder will return to the USA in July, with a load of fellow nutters for the second USA charity motorcycle ride, also known as The Great British Invasion.

Proceeds once again go to Childline and the NSPCC.

The chaps may well do some acoustic performances for fun here & there along the road

Times are tight, so it has been decided not to ask Union/Thunder fans for donations this year (though you can of course donate to Childline any time).

However, if you fancy spending a week on a Harley Davidson, riding through some of the most spectacular scenery in the world, and having a sing song around the camp fire every now and then with the guys, that is possible..

Yes folks, you read that right, there are some places available for those who can raise the funds, so if you have a bike licence and you're interested in what we're told is "the ride of a lifetime", just click the link, read the blurb, get all excited, then email the organisers.

Full details on the ride can be found at www.childlinerocks.co.uk.

A Message from Luke & Pete

Hello everybody,

It's been a massively busy six months or so since 'SIREN'S SONG' was released and as we've not dropped you a line for a while we thought this was a good time to bring you all up to date on recent events and let you know what's coming up soon.


MERCHANDISE SALE

Firstly we're pleased to announce our SPRING SALE!! Yes folks, grab yourself a bargain or two over at our online shop right now while stocks last. All T-shirt prices have been slashed to as little as £6.99 EACH or, even better than that, £10 FOR TWO! Also we've got a few signed copies of the 'MAKE UP YOUR MIND/OBSESSION' single left which we're virtually giving away for £1.99. Go on, you know you want to!!! Click here to go to our shop.


SUMMER GIGS

We really looking forward to playing a bunch of shows across the UK and Europe this summer including the enormous rock'n'roll institution that is DOWNLOAD FESTIVAL. Click here to go to our gigs page and check out if we're going to be anywhere near your part of the world and, if you do come along to a show, don't forget to wave!!


NEW ALBUM

We're currently working on new material and we can report that it's going very well indeed. We hope to start recording album number three in August with a view to releasing it either late this year or early 2013. We will of course begin teasing and titillating you with a few cheeky snippets before then so don't forget to keep checking in regularly.


TOURING

We've completed two very successful UK tours in the last seven months, so much so in fact that we are looking at the possibility of another tour later this year. Obviously we'll keep you all informed on how things develop but right now it's looking very likely......


A VERY BIG THANK YOU!!

We'd really just like to say how much we appreciate your ongoing support and long may it remain so! As you all know we don't have a large, corporate label behind us so we pretty much rely on you guys spreading the word and sending out good vibes about our music. You've certainly been doing that so THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!!


All the best,

Luke & Pete.
