Hope you're all getting ready to eat too much, drink far too much and receive/give some awesome pressies! Who says the true meaning of Christmas is lost on us! We also want to thank everyone who made 2011 such an amazing year for us, with special thanks to the following:
Mark at PsycheDOOMelic Records for having enough faith in us to sign us and release our second album in 2012.
The awesome Mez of Heretic Promotions at Scruffy Murphys in Birmingham for being one of the best promoters and sound engineers that we deal with. Scruffy's is the best underground music venue in the Midlands and Mez does them proud! Two more awesome promoters - Dan and Reece at DesertScene! Constantly bringing the best bands over to the UK to play and inviting Alunah to play with them. This year we were invited to support Acid King and Karma to Burn and next year we're on the DesertFest bill - these guys deserve a HUGE thank you. There are loads of promoters who have helped us out this year - too many to mention so if we've not mentioned you we still love ya!!
Bob at Soggy Bog who has continually supported us throughout the year and for inviting Soph to guest on one of his podcasts (listen here). Hellride Music, Core of Destruction Radio, Grip of Delusion Radio, Midlands Rocks, Blood Worm Brand and anyone else we've missed.
Bit cheesy but everyone in 2011 who has watched us, listened to us, brought our merch, brought us drinks, told everyone how much they like us and even told everyone how much they hate us... it's all good!
Massive thanks and salutations to the following bands who we've had the pleasure of sharing a stage with this year, if we've missed you it's nowt personal we were probaby just drunk! Acid King, Carlton Melton, Sally, Lifer, General, Karma to Burn, Fu Manchu, Black Spiders, Bastard of The Skies, Engines of Armageddon, Meadows, Iron Void, Viking Skull, Slab, Desert Storm, Pig Iron, Stone Axe, Stubb, Trippy Wicked and the Kosmic Children of the Knight (I used the full name lads!!), Firebird, Serpent Venom, A Million Miles, Gringo, Shebrew, Gurt and Dopefight.
2012 will be even better, we'll give birth to our second album which again will be recorded by the awesome Greg Chandler but mixed and mastered by Tony Reed of Stone Axe. we're supporting A Pale Horse Named Death (members of Type of Negative, Biohazard and Life of Agony - tickets £9 from us with free p&p), we're featuring on the Fallng Down zine compilation (track can be listened to here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bl8aLhOpAew
) We're embarking on a couple of tours... more details soon but one will hopefully be with a PsycheDOOMelic label mate, the mighty DesertFest in Camden in April, and the International Powerhouse Doom Fest at Scruffy Murphys with Stone Axe (USA), Stubb (UK), Trippy Wicked and the Kosmic Children of the Knight (UK), Cultura Tres (VEN) and Banda de la Muerte (ARG).
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!! See you in 2012!
