We've had a flying start to the new year (and hope you have too) and started January with some good news... Vodafone in Germany have chosen 'Cold November Sunrise' for their new online campaign 'Freaky Monday' which launched on the 23rd of January. In its first day, we received a massive 90,000 downloads/plays. There has been a great reaction to the song and we're looking forward to getting out there and touring Germany, Switzerland and Austria in the coming months with our new company NB World. The other good news is that we now have a deal and will be releasing in France. We've also confirmed two festivals and another tour of the Netherlands which we'll be announcing soon (slowly but surely boxing it all off in Europe).
We've been working hard on getting the album ready for manufacturing and in the next week, we'll have completed the vinyl artwork... it's got to be white vinyl doesn't it? The artwork in general for our second studio album 'WE RISE' is coming together really nicely and we've now decided on a front cover - which is a whole other (and very interesting) story.
Because of all of the above, January has been quiet on the gigging front, although we have done a couple of good ones. We played and celebrated the birthday of our friend Paul Gallagher in Highgate, London. It was a brilliant night of music and partying and we had a buzz with fellow Irish band, Cronin.
Our first ever Scotland show was on Jan 20th, playing the famous festival 'Celtic Connections' in Glasgow. I know everyone says it but what a place to play. The Glaswegians really do love their live music. The crowd were great and despite the 14 hour round trip (in one day), we had a cracking time.
We've finally decided to get with the times and start doing some Spotify playlists. In our latest playlist 'M&M1' we've selected some songs from the artists who inspire us - and general banger's... Enjoy
Next month will be an interesting one as we're diving head first back into it with a mini tour and our first official London show of the year, playing at 'The Old Blue Last' in east London. We've just confirmed that this will be the full electric M&M band show and you don't want to miss it.
