No 1 in the RN Rankings

Just a big shout out of thanks to all who have connected with us and are liking what we are doing. We are number 1 in the rankings as a result of the big increase in fans, likes, plays etc since we uploaded new song "Misery, Poverty and War".

We are going in the studio this week to do a radio edit of the song as we have had a few requests from radio stations liking the song but in its current form is too long for radio play at 6:53 so the radio edit will be approx 3:49.

We are in the studio again later this month to record another 4 tracks and will be releasing our 1st EP early Febuary.

A big thanks to you all for your continued support x

Recording session update

The band are buzzing after two succesful gigs this Friday and Saturday and in the studio this morning to work on new song "Misery, Poverty and War".

Everyone whos heard this song really like it and was talked about at both gigs. At Saturdays gig it went down so well it attracted quite a crowd on the dance floor. Its differant than what they have done before, its best described as a power ballard and its severn minutes long.

Recording in the studio has gone very well. Final recordings of drums, bass and keyboards have been done today with quick guitar and vocal takes. The band are back in the studio next week to finish recording the guitar and vocals.

Rehearsals continue as the band build up their set. They have 35 minutes at the moment so if anybody wants a band to fill half hour slot let them know.

The band would also like to thank those who have been listening to their music and fanning them as week by week the numbers continue to grow.

All the best to you in what ever it is you do.
