no info yet, Liege show was cancelled.
WE (and by 'we' I mean ML) ALSO MADE SOME MUSIC VIDEOS FOR SONGS OFF ENGLISH MARTYRS THAT ARE PRETTY GOOD IMO
'Once In Every Century' (above)
'Gore Seer' (below)
We should have copies of the record by the time we get to France. There are still a few ...vs. Big Electric copies left and we'll have those.
More on English Martyrs in a future blog as we'll likely let you hear it all just before official release. If you want to ask us anything, be it a journalistic enquiry or personal curiosity, the email address should be to your right.
Currently no word on the National Service re-press though all the original labels are involved as well as Specific. We have sent our money and re-jigged the artwork and it's out of our hands now. Might not make it to tour, what with the pressing plant backed up for the pointless exercise of Record Store Day. But it's going to be back out there.
In the meantime here are some words about ...vs. Big Electric. Mostly positive, some not as much. Can't win 'em all. Critical culture is important.

And maybe we'll get something withering out of this...
|I mean if we are punk then we are entryist punks at best but where hell else can we send shit?|
After all this we will shut the fuck up for the rest of the year, I GUARANTEE.
