Rain rain and more rain

We have been preparing for our second support tour with Phillip Boa and the Voodoo Club in March (see live page for more details), this time hitting Rostock, Hannover, Coelsfeld and will be warming up with our own show in Hamburg!! We can't wait to play again, this time as a 4 piece...so 2 more hands and feet to make a bigger sound. The new material from the next album is taking shape live. As a support act we aren't permitted to use live drums so we're taking the more electronic edge further, which is exciting....

Come see us play if you're local and if not...we'll be booking London gigs and another European tour in May to coincide with our NEW SINGLE RELEASE!!!!

As ever, come back to check details or find us on Facebook "Evi Vine Music"

European Tour - May 2013

Our European tour was amazing..thank you to everyone that we managed to cross paths with along the way from London, Brussels, Liege, Siegen, Leipzig and Hamburg!! It was the first real tour we have ever done. We followed the punk rock DIY ethos, gigs were self-booked  with other bands & everything was self funded from beginning to end... 2,000kms playing 5 shows in 5 days. It was the first time we had played new material with the new band and it felt right...sometimes it’s hard to explain when music is ‘right’, but with musicians who can interpret the music and make the sound blossom into something unexpected – then it simply is.

It is also sometimes hard to justify or explain why we would do a self booked, self funded tour... Industry folk may say...”it’s pointless! you have no new product! this isn’t part of a promotional tour! you are not playing at Venue X yet so why bother!!?? and on and on.... However, we played our music to some of the best most responsive crowds we ever had, got the biggest welcome from the smallest towns, saw old friends, made new ones...swam in Siegens only rooftop pool, drank until the sun came up, played shithead in Leige listening to Dj Shadow and Talking Heads, got to watch Perverted by Language, Ordinaire and the Noonday dreams...became a really tight band, on and off the stage, signed Cd’s and T shirts and got to hang out with lovely people who came to see us play 1,300 kms from home.... That is why we did it......  and we loved every minute.

We’ll be returning in autumn/winter...so watch this space for live dates popping up through the summer.

Special thank you to Jeremy Thomas, Stephane Ink, Michael Plugge, Toralf and Achim x

 

Stay Hungry, Stay Foolish

We have had our heads down, refining and crafting the material getting it ready for the mix. Lyrics are coming together and that magical moment when songs take on new meanings even though you've heard them hundreds of times..

Mixing is now focused for June, new tracks appeared, old tracks re-worked and it's exciting to hear the album take shape. It's never been possible to predict this album, sounds changing, styles merging..... We'll post updates when we are nearing the mixing and will keep a daily blog with pictures from the sessions.

We are heading to Europe for some shows May 29th!!! New band, new material and new vehicle..it's going to be new for all of us. Trying out the new material live is something we're all looking forward to. We have The Noonday Dreams playing with us in Germany, and will be great to see them play live too.

See the LIVE tab for gig dates!!
