And here we are....... Just put up 2 monitor mixes of "Stay Away' and "Catching My Eye". Work in progress, we wanted some new tunes up so rather than wait, we popped em up. Big ups to producer Wolsey for the love he is showing towards all our new stuff. Plenty of gigs coming up, the biggest being The London Final of Surface Festival. 2nd September, its the top 20 bands going at it, and the top 7 go into the European Final at Indigo at the 02 arena. Big stuff. Will be doing the normal promo to help us get votes, as always. We hope it doesnt piss you off, but it has to be done. 3 music industry guys make up 75% of the vote the other 25% comes from text votes. So if your in on #thejourney text south 5171 to 64 343. Costs a quid. If you want tickets for the London Final, please shout, we need as much support as possible. Big thanks to everyone for your support. Big Love ATY xxxx

Hi Hope everyone is good. The nice people at Reverbnation have given us a months trial on an 'According To You" Android App. Its free and the link is here.
We are gonna try it out and see if anyone wants it :). We can get it for iPhone & Blackberry but that costs, so will see. So if you have Android, please check it out and let us know what you think about it, would be really helpful. :)
We all went up to Brixton last week to see Hard-Fi, stopped off at The Prince Albert pub in Brixton before hand and ended up getting a gig up there, so check out the gig list. Got 1 at Thorpe Park as well in November, details incoming. Plus our next visit to The Castle we will have a set from The Elations.

Huge Thanks to everyone @ Brooklands College.
Yesterday we won their Battle of the Bands, ahead of 6 other wicked bands. Its a great buzz for us and everyone involved with According To You.
