Summer Tour Summary, EC meet Craig Charles, Homecoming Shows.

Hey guys,

So, it really felt today like summer is now over - the wind has picked up, it got dark early and, if I'm not mistaken it's just started raining outside. For us this means that our festival tour is over and WOW, what an amazing few weeks we've had... 

We'd like to thanks all the wonderful audiences that turned up to our shows at Leamington Peace Festival, Beat-Herder, Bradstock, Workhouse, Manchester Jazz Festival, Mannifest, Moor Music Festival, Sheep Music, Crash Festival, Limetree Festival, and Greenbelt Festival - YOU LOT are the reason we've travelled the length and breadth of the country, sleep in tents in muddy fields and cars in service stations. It was a pleasure to play for you and special thanks to anyone who came and talked to us after show. We had some mad times and have updated some pics in our Myspace Gallery.

We're going to spend the next couple of weeks compiling bits of video footage, pictures, and audio from these gigs but, in the meantime, here's what the legendary Craig Charles had to say about our show at Limetree (sorry it's not a YouTube video yet, will change it from FB as soon as possible)


Ok, so we're taking the Extra Curricular show back indoors starting with a couple of special 'homecoming' gigs in the Huddersfield and Leeds areas. It's been a long time coming and we're looking forward to rocking some shows in our favourite venues!
