Anyway, just before that came out we signed to some label from America by the name of REVELATION RECORDS. I think they released some stuff for this band Warzone, I dunno...
Seriously though, we are honoured to be the first non-American band to be on the label, as we have all been fans of their classics since our teens.
After that, we headed out for a 7-week tour of the USA with our brother band THE FLEX, which was insane. Tom is still in the process of putting together a full writeup but it should be an amusing read.
Back in England, we have had an unfortunate lineup change: the artist formerly known as Jimmy Wizard is no longer with us. VR was a little too hectic for him and he is now concentrating on FADE, SHRAPNEL, and drawing on people for a living. So for now we are a 4-piece again with Charlie back on the bass until we can organise a permanent bass player. Long live Jimmy Wizard.
The new LP has now been fully recorded with Atko at Mutiny Studios in Bradford and in the process of being mixed. It should be out by early 2015 on Revelation Records.
That's about all for now, go and listen to Budgie.
