and it'd be nice if you came to one of them. extra euro-incentive, from the 3rd to the 15th may we'll be a four piece; ben is flying from south africa to once again do amazing visual image wizardry and fall over on stage with us. also, from the 8th, we'll be supported by young legionaire. For the uk shows, we should have a really small amount of frisbeeps to sell, as well as a couple of classy new shirt designs:

anyone complaining we're not playing near where you live, SHUTUP SHUTUP SHUTUP. we're taking care in the UK to hit places we've missed for a while, there'll be more european and uk shows later in the year, and, most of, reading them kind of comments pure depresses us. we know you want us to play in yr city. we want to play in yr city. we want to play everywhere. we only turn down shows if they're financially unfeasible, and each one of those WHY NO MY TOWN comments is a moment of time you could have spent writing to yr local promotors who decide such things.

in this vein, i'd like to give a sad wave over the seas to toronto. The lovely folk at NXNE invited us to play this year, and, despite wanting it more than anything ever, we're not in a position to front the costs right now. Next year, we'll hopefully have american distro and less people we owe cashes too, but for now WE ARE SOBBING INSIDE. so thanks to NXNE for being so understanding and good luck with yr stoopid festival. pssssssssh.

going to blates spam all these dates to facebook tomorrow, apologies in advance.

Hi lovely people, I am so looking forward to your gig at Berlin's "Rosi's". You should sell t-shirts with "Amateur historian" on it, I'd so buy one, as I'm studying history! :D
