EP Launch Blog

The EP Launch was a real success on Monday night and we had an amazing time both on stage and off, resulting in a much needed recovery day on Tuesday! Big thanks go to 70 Million Dinosaurs for stepping in at the last minute and kicking things off with an awesome set, and also to Lyrically Justified for helping organise the night.

There were a good number of people who turned out and everyone seemed to really enjoy themselves. We played all the songs from the EP as well as a few covers including ‘Mind Eraser’ by Them Crooked Vultures as well as our new song ‘A Promise’ which went down really well. All of us really enjoyed the gig and would like to say how much we appreciate everyone who made it down to make it such a special night.

Our first attempt at a Merchandise stand was also a great success and we sold nearly all of our t-shirts on the first night of the tour, so if you still haven’t got yours get in there quick! After playing the longest set we had in a while, the 70 Million Dinosaur guys joined us for a well deserved drink and 3 huge pizzas to top off a great night.

Now fully recovered, we are looking forward to the rest of the tour which continues at The Shed on Wednesday night. If you couldn’t make the EP launch or just want to see us again, get down to The Shed to hear a few new songs and to get the new Arizona Bay EP and Merchandise!!

Arizona Bay Press Release

ARIZONA BAY RELEASE DEBUT EP

Arizona Bay EP: 1. Footsteps 2. Letting Go 3. Nothing Left To Say But Goodbye 4. Second Best 5. Safe As You 6. Costain 7. White Noise 8. Last Song (Acoustic Bonus Track)

Leeds' leading grunge revivalists Arizona Bay release their debut, self-titled, EP on November 22nd with a launch taking place at Carpe Diem in Leeds city centre. Support on the night comes from kindred spirits, the Sheffield based [sub]Nova.

The past year has seen Arizona Bay move from strength to strength, with charismatic live performances of both original material and reworkings of unsung rock classics, and their new 8-track EP is testament to the band’s progress over this initial period. Intensive writing, road-testing, and recording original material has allowed the band to form and hone their sound, blending Classic Rock and Blues influences with a 90s-centric Alt. Rock aesthetic incorporating all the angst driven energy and fury of Grunge whilst at times possessing a subtlety and dynamic awareness all too often lacking within the genre.

The band will follow the launch of their new release with a small scale UK tour including a string of dates across the North of England:

MON 22/11/10 – Carpe Diem, LEEDS WED 24/11/10 – The Shed, LEEDS THU 25/11/10 – Railway, BOLTON FRI 26/11/10 – Rios, BRADFORD TUE 30/11/10 – Brudenell Social Club, LEEDS SUN 05/12/10 – Stamps Bar, LIVERPOOL TUES 07/12/10 – The Library, LEEDS

Arizona Bay UPDATE

The self entitled debut EP is now finished and will be available at all our shows as well as on digital music sites such as I Tunes in the very near future. It was a lot of fun to make and is sounding great. We will look forward to hearing if you like it as much as we do! Since finishing the EP we have been rehearsing new songs and tightening up some older ones ready to go on a small UK Tour before the end of the Year. The Tour will start in Leeds with a launch night scheduled at Carpe Diem on the 22nd November. Following this we will hopefully hit Manchester, Liverpool, London and anywhere else that we can inbetween. There should be plenty of new songs being played as well as the full EP, so we would love to see as many of you at these shows as possible! Keep checking for details, as we will have more news on both the tour and the availability of the EP very Soon. Arizona Bay
