BUT the tour isn’t the first gigs for the new record, on Tuesday night (tomorrow, duhhh) I’m playing at Castle Hotel in Manchester (my local!) with Best Friends who are awesome and you should also check out and you can do that by clicking their name that I just wrote. It’s organised by the awesome guys at Reeks of Effort and the facebook event page for that is HERE.
AND last but deffo not least we’re throwing a massive party to celebrate the release of no hope at my favouritist of venues The Cluny on the 23rd which is THIS FRIDAY!! the event page for that is HERE and that’s again with my bro’s PlayLounge who are coming all the way up from london and sleeping in my childhood bedroom ‘cause my parents live nearish Newcastle.
I’m sorry that this has been so long and such a bore but this is the end, all that’s left is to say thank you all so much for sticking around and letting me be able to keep making records and go on tour and meet all of the amazing people that making music has let me meet.Really exciting news coming soon that’ll change everything, but for now let’s just all enjoy the ride yeah.
Love you forever, Oliver xxxoxoxoxoxox
