Festival season on the horizon

Due to catching my two middle fingers in one of my Mum's garden chairs I am sadly of no use this evening in band practise.  So, I have decided to sit in the corner and make myself useful by writing a short blog about the current goings on in the Shackle camp.

As my six year old handwriting jots this down onto paper the boys are finishing off arranging our latest tune 'Heart of the Storm'.  I know we could all write our own reviews but... "you are in for a treat with this one" (McKeon, J. 2014) .  This song joins a list of twelve new tracks which we can't wait for you all to hear.   

We are hoping to get into the recording studio in the next few months in order to release out third album as soon as possible.

We have now been practising in our chicken shed for a fair few months now and it would be fair to say that Kim and Aggie wouldn't be happy with the state we've got the place in.  Spring clean needed (voluntary cleaners welcome).  

May is usually where things begin to get quite busy for us.  This weekend coming sees us perform at our first festival of the year, headlining Saturday night at Wath Festival.  On the 15th May we head back to our beloved Devauden festival for the fifth year in a row to headline the Friday night.  Then on the 31st May we are delighted to be sharing the main stage at Wychwood festival with the likes of UB40 and The Proclaimers.

On the 16th May we are also going to be part of a BBC Radio Wales show.  This will be a regular weekly occurrence where we have the privilege of being the house band every Saturday throughout the summer.  We will put links up to these shows on our social networking sites nearer the time.

Thanks as always for your support
