Hello everyone, are there still people out and about on Livejournal? You may have noticed it a bit quiet around here of late, but after the band announced that they were stopping doing gigs it seemed right to leave things to rest.

However, following the last gig in the UK I felt the need for a post in here. So here goes Read more...Collapse )

In case there are people in here who aren't on twitter and facebook, there is news about the new baby Lloyd.

Its a girl!!!

"Lily Christina Lloyd, Born 4th June 2012 at 5.18pm weighing 7lb 13oz. Beautiful"

I'm sure everyone joins me in sending congratulations to Gareth and Gemma.

I also send special congratulations to Gemma as after all she did all the hard work :)

We should celebrate next time we are all together.

PS, I know that this is slightly off topic for this comm, but as the band posted about it I figured why not!

So yes I know that this news came out last night but I figured we should report on it now we've got the whole picture.

Anyone that has missed it the boys have announcing that Anthony Clark (the guitarist) is leaving the band to pursue other projects. I'm sure that everyone will join me in wishing him well with his future projects and will continue to support him with this.

It has now been announced that in order to take things forward the remaining three are going to use creativity to keep playing the new album at gigs as they didn't feel that replacement was an option. So Rhys is going to put his own spin on the guitar parts and they are going to use a pre-recorded bass track. So be not afraid, they are going to continue.

I'm sure this has come as a shock to a lot of people but together we can keep going and bring the seven rages of man to the masses. It will keep rocking on but will just look a little different :)

This week has been really quite exciting from the Gillespie camp, there was the album launch, more gigs have been announced and the new album is getting lots of reviews. So I'm going to attempt to summarise it all into 1 post. But please comment if you would like to share stories about the album launch or just tell us about the new album.

Now seriously, what does everyone think? :)

Have everyone been following the news via twitter and facebook?

For those who haven't or just missed the announcement then I bring good news. The new album will be available to listen to through soundcloud from 6pm this evening - thats 6pm GMT. Please see the website for full details.

They have also been helpful and put up a link to where you can download the smartphone app for soundcloud so that you can listen to it anywhere. All you need is a smart phone and this link and you're good to go.

The full launch will be on the 4th May, where anyone can get their hands on a copy. Tickets for the gig and preorders for the album are all on the website if you have a wander over...

Anyone excited yet?

Right everyone, there was a gig on friday night. I'd like to invite anyone who was there to comment on the gig and share happy memories with those would couldn't be there.

I was lucky enough to make it. We had a great time and got to see 4 awesome bands, I even liked 3/4 which was really nice. The venue was really nice too with lots of space for rocking out and really good hold music between the sets. We also got a chance of a sneeky peek at the new album tracks. I think I'd have liked to have heard some of the tracks I knew because its hard to dance to stuff you don't know but all in all it was a good gig.

Only 3 weeks till the album launch now. Who is excited? :)

So, I'm trying to decide whether to stay over somewhere in Wales after the gig, or drive back home to Bristol. The way the budget is, driving home  seems like a good idea. But I wouldn't want to miss the Gillespian Breakfast the morning after, if there is going to be one. So, the question is, who's staying, and whereabouts? :D

The band have announce a gig in London on Friday 13th April at the 100 Club on Oxford Street, supporting The Spindle Sect (and also with Collisions and CYPHAR).
Doors are at 7pm, BG are onstage 8pm and have promised excerpts from their new album Seven Rages of Man :) Tickets are available here for £9 (including booking fee) or on the door for £10. Information on the BG website is here.

On another note, some sharp-eyed Gillespians have noticed that this gig clashes with the first night of Hub 8 in Northampton. I'm proposing to run a minibus from the Park Inn, Northampton to the venue in London and back, which is likely to cost between £16.50 and £21 (depending on how many people want to take advantage of it!)  Please email me at glasgowgillespians@gmail.com if interested - and spread the word to anyone who might find this useful. The prices quoted are only guaranteed for a week so I'd like to book as soon as possible... (Please also note that this is something I'm taking on personally, and shouldn't be associated with the band, or the LJ community, in any way.)
