New Double A-Side Single - Make Up Your Mind / Obsession

Hi everyone,

Before we get started we’d like to say a Happy New Year to everybody and thank you for your support and enthusiasm throughout 2011. We want you to know that we really do appreciate it and we hope you stay along for the ride in 2012!

THE SINGLE
On March 12th we’ll be releasing an exclusive signed double a-sided CD single to coincide with our upcoming UK tour (more about that later). The tracks are;

Make Up Your Mind (2012 revised radio version)
Obsession (radio edit)
Cut The Line (live)
Obsession (live)


We actually re-recorded ‘Make Up Your Mind’ specifically for single purposes and what we got was a really uplifting, vibrant version of the song.
Obsession’ went down so well on our last tour we actually couldn’t decide which track was a better choice so we ended up with the double a-side option.
The two live tracks were recorded at Islington Academy on the last tour and we loved the rawness of the performances so we thought they’d complement the two studio tracks well.

Make Up Your Mind/Obsession’ is now available for pre-order right now
here so if you’re up for getting some decent music into the charts (and who isn’t?) you know what to do! There’s also a single/tour shirt bundle available for those amongst you that are coming to a show and want to look the part.

Speaking of which…..

THE TOUR

Yes folks, on March 2nd we begin a co-headlining UK and Ireland tour with The Answer.

Dear All

Please check out this link.
Luke and Chris met Tom a few times at Thunder shows. He was a very nice young chap, and tragically taken way too early.

We know times are tight, but anything you can donate will help these lunatics raise some much needed research money.

Thanks
