Really glad Andy is up for standing in and the show will go on but what a challenge learning all those expensive chords in a week...

Have you heard The Tangent before? They had to build in a sunroof for their quota of expensive chords to shoot through.  ;D

And I believe Jem has also suffered at the mercy of cheese graters and cricket balls before. Not that I'm keeping count, or anything...

Right then! It's not too late to get your pre-orders in, so get 'em in here if you haven't already. If you want to know what it sounds like, now then...

First up, our Gonzo will have an exclusive track featured on the 100th episode of his podcast EIMA (see here) which airs this Saturday. Secondly, if you're Celebr8 bound (and who wouldn't be?), then there is another exclusive track included on the super-wicked-cool special CD set that Bert is cooking up, along with many other fine rarities from the other bands and artists playing at the festival. On that note, Simon will be performing an acoustic set on Celebr8 Sunday, which might well feature one or two tunes from the album as well as all your Tinyfish favourites (should such things exist). Finally, on Monday 6th May, AKA THIS MONDAY COMING UP, there will be a free download single from the album made available for one and all! So, if all of that doesn't convince you...  ;)

Oh, and there's also a teaser trailer for the album wot I gone and dun, but I don't actually know when that's going to appear. More on that as soon as I know.  :D

Twitter links!

And here's the Shineback Facebook page if you are so inclined that way: Link!

I'll be there! For all of it, hopefully.  8)

From Twang on Facebook:

I must say a massive "Bravo!" is in order to Mr. Tillison! Bravo, sir!

I will personally come round to your house and perform accompanying sign language* along to your first listen, Pedro.  <!-- s;) -->;)<!-- s;) -->

I have no idea about signed copies, but I shall mention it in my next communiqué with the Dark Lord (formerly known as the Amazing Wilf).

*may not be accurate or constitute actual sign language beyond rude hand gestures and interpretive dance - this is where the many ducks will come into play

Pre-orders now being taken! You can get the album, a shirt, or a bundle of both. If you order before 15th June, you also get a bonus track to download which is only available to those who get in early. Believe me, it's worth it.  ;)

Go, go, go!  :D

And now for the press release that everyone's surely seen by now:

Rise Up Forgotten, Return Destroyed will be released by Bad Elephant Music on 1st July 2013.

Fusing pop, prog and electronica into a story of abuse, betrayal and madness, Rise Up Forgotten, Return Destroyed is the new album from Shineback, solo project from Simon Godfrey of Tinyfish. The album - with lyrics from Simon's writing partner in Tinyfish, Robert Ramsay - centres upon the story of Dora who undertakes a fantastic, yet disturbing journey into her own dream word where she encounters dark revelations about her past buried in memory.

To aid Simon in this venture, artists such as Matt Stevens (Fierce And The Dead), Dec Burke (Frost*, Alpha Flood, Darwin's Radio, Dec Burke Band), Henry Rogers (Touchstone, DeeExpus, Final Conflict), Andy Ditchfield (DeeExpus), Hywel Bennett (Dec Burke Band) Paul Worwood (Tinyfish) and Danny Claire (Ion Blue, Michael Angelo) have contributed their time and talents to make this a truly genre crossing record.

We are taking pre-orders for the album - and for limited edition Shineback T-shirts - at The Merch Desk from 1st April. If you pre-order before 15th June then you will receive, by email, a code to download an exclusive bonus track from the album sessions, I Have Good Days, I Have Bad Days. This track will only be made available to those who pre-order the album. Furthermore, pre-orders for CD and T-shirt bundles will be at a special price, again, only available if you order before 15th June.

A download-only 'single' from the album will be released on 3rd June together with a 'B-side' that isn't on the CD.

Groovy.  :mrgreen:

Hi, all! Been a while. Hope everything's tickety-boo in the Frost*iverse.  :)

I just popped in to say that the album's finished and is ready to be sent off for mastering. Expect a pre-order and other interesting bits and bobs as soon as the Bad Elephant Music label figure them out.

There is also a Facebook page here which has already sunk into anarchy of wonderful sorts. Hope that link works so you can all come and like it... both genuinely and otherwise!  ;)  There's also a teaser video here featuring some sound snippets (and some ginger bearded goon) and an artwork preview here.

Tally-ho!  :D
Saw this just now and thought of this mad adventure. And how most of you would've sounded on New Year's Eve, no doubt. Happy New Year, all!

Blunders. You da man. It's as simple as that.  ;)

I'd say that this line-up of Frost* is the best there has been. Certainly the tightest. And it can only get better from here.  :)

That was one surreal gig experience for me. In a good way, I must add! I lingered maybe a bit too long at the pub and ended up in the queue outside the Travelodge next door. I didn't know what to expect, but bloody hell, I didn't expect it to be that popular! Anyway, I managed to shuffle into the main room itself as the intro was playing and ended up down on the floor by the left stairs. The crowd was mental - properly rammed. I was a bit concerned that quite a few people chose to stand right across the stairways - a good vantage point yes, but not so good for a quick escape in case of emergency. But anyway, it was just about sold out - that would indicate a big, packed in crowd, no?  ;)  I was absolutely exhausted, so halfway through BLM I thought I better get out for a breather... and ended up being pointed into the VIP area by a member of staff, which is where I stayed for the rest of the gig. The sound was pumped in through speakers direct from the mixing desk, so it was crystal clear, if lacking that gig atmosphere (and being pounded into submission by Blunders' drums  ;) ). It was surreal being seperated and yet part of the gig. Bizarre. But I got to hang out with Matt Stevens, Lord Twang himself (briefly) and Kavus from Knifeworld, so I can't complain.  8-)

The first thing that I noted was just how damn good Jem's voice sounded. That man's been looking after himself! Especially on the new tracks, which both sounded immense, of course. I particularly liked Heartstrings, it had a good riff thang goin'. The Speak & Spell section was... yeah. Typical.  :lol: While I was down there, the sound was pretty good. It wasn't the most balanced mix, but the volume was a surprise - very comfortable. Quite rare now, I think. Milliontown was great, but I don't think I'll miss it live. It is really rather long, after all. Nice for one last spin, though.  :)

It Bites - well, they're It Bites, aren't they? Solid. And they played the last two tracks I've been wanting to see / hear live for some time now, so I was very happy.  :)

The social aspect has become the highlight of these gigs for me, so it was excellent to hang out with so many wondreful people and see so many familiar faces, as well as find a few new ones. Cheers, all! There's never enough time, though, is there? And sorry to those I missed (Mr. Worrell, where the hell were you?), but with a crowd that size, I'm lucky I found the few I did.  :)

Massive thanks to Fogeyspasm whose gig going stamina is beyond heroic. Thank you again for the lift, mate.  :D
