Wow, it’s been a while!
As you may have noticed, we’ve been away for ages. The reasons for this are twofold.
Firstly, our tyrannical leader David tried and failed to cut his own thumb off earlier in the year. Obviously, this is quite a setback for a guitarist/pianist. Thankfully, the surgery and recovery went swimmingly.
Secondly, Matt has become a dad to Ethan! Almost straight from birth he was being schooled in music, and we hope to have him shredding a guitar solo on an OML record in the next 12 months.
So, after our extended hiatus, we eventually went back in the studio to record some new songs last week, and they are sounding great. These songs will form part of a future release, again through our good friends at Tiny Lights, and that release will also include a song we recorded last time we went in the studio but has never been heard - until now!
Yeah, you can have a sneak peak of some new O’Messy Life material by casting your eyes and ears just below these words:
Not content with recording some new tunes for you all, we’ll also be playing some live shows, our first since April this year.
The first of these will be as part of A Carefully Planned Festival in Manchester, where we will be playing at Soup Kitchen on Sunday 21st October.
Our first Newcastle gig back will be on November 16th at Cluny 2, where we will be joined by The Hundredth Anniversary and Tusk.
We will also be playing a gig in December in Newcastle, but we can’t announce the details for that quite yet.
Last, but not least, we have some t-shirts that you can buy here.
Here it is, being modelled by our good friend - not to mention the person NME would most like a reacharound from - Liam Gallagher:
