Common Tongues Update 30/8/16






Massive thankyou to the incredibly sexy crowd (photo above) line up and organisers who made the Fiddler’s Elbow Cider and Folk Festival such a stonking good time Sunday just gone, it was an absolute  pleasure to play, despite some wicked hangovers.


Our next Brighton show sees us returning to Marwood’s Cafe on the 9th of September, headlining the smoking lineup  of Michael Baker and Kerry Devine.  Its a free show and is guaranteed to be a cracker, more details to come soon.


In other news, the end of our pledge campaign and the subsequent release of our debut record draws very close.  The campaign has already exceeded all expectations we had and were very grateful to all of you who have pledged!  For those who haven’t and would love to get there hands on our debut album, exclusively available through pledge pre order, there is still time! Just click Here and go pledgeing crazy.

This is our next London show, 29th of April at Camden Proud with fellow Brightonians Team New Band! We also share the stage with Secret Cameras and Gunner Who.  Please click here to go to the FB page and click on going, and you can get your tickets here.  A measly £5 before 10pm for 4 cracking bands, sounds like a no brainer to me.  This evening is being put on by the lovely HotVox, to find a little bit more about what they do click here.  See you all there!
