🎈ANNOUNCEMENT: Due to the ongoing COVID situation and no indication yet about when live music venues will open again for shows, we’ve taken the difficult decision to re-think our plans for the 'Ursa Major' tour scheduled for October.
LONDON, LEEDS and MANCHESTER - these shows will now take place in April of next year, instead of October. All tickets purchased will still be valid for the re-scheduled dates, so just hang on to those and we’ll see you in April. Ace support comes in the shape of Deco and Sad Boys Club.
ABERDEEN, GLASGOW and BRISTOL - sadly, we’ve not been able to re-schedule these shows for April. We hope to get out to you as soon as we can, but for now tickets are refundable from your point of purchase.
🎈TOUR TOUR TOUR. Unlike certain Texan festivals, this one IS happening - and in October when we'll all be quarantine-free and have plenty of loo roll. Join us, Deco and Sad Boys Club as we make our way to you! 🚐
LEEDS SOLD OUT. We're completely blown away that all tickets for 5 of the 6 shows have gone in advance and that we'll now be ending this tour in front of a 700 capacity crowd in our hometown. We'll see you Saturday. Hold on to yer hats! 🎩🎉🎈
LOUDER THAN WAR's Keith Goldhanger was kind enough to write the following words about our recent set for Huw Stephens' monthly showcase at The Social, London. 🎈
This four piece have vocals that are as strong as The Beach Boys and songs that slip and slide at a ferocious pace with the odd anthemic chorus thrown in. To witness this at such an early hour of the evening is enough to draw the breath of anyone watching such an energetic performance.
OUR FRIENDS at Vinyl Noise have posted a tour video for Part 2 of their On Tour With Marsicans feature. We had a cool time with Alice and Mara who joined us on the road for dates in Glasgow, Leeds and London on our tour with Hippo Campus. 🎈
BEFORE THE FINAL GIG of our recent UK tour with Hippo Campus, we had a chat backstage to Dan from Turtle Tempo about preferred choice of cereal, who we'd most want to be stuck in a lift with and other important matters. 🎈
You can listen to our chatter and bad language in all its full unedited glory below...
