Just a little news round up, and a thank you for all the amazing support I’ve had in 2011. I’ve genuinely been overwhelmed by the reaction from everyone – from all the radio plays, the Maida Vale session, the great gigs and people I’ve met at each one, and everyone who has bought the records, thank you so much.
To round off an amazing year, The Blackout has also been chosen by Bethan Elfyn as BBC Radio Wales’ “Track Of The Year”, which I can’t quite believe as it came top ahead of some amazing bands like the Manic Street Preachers and Los Campesinos. You can listen to her countdown here:
Also, I recorded a Christmas video for the wonderful Leeds project Anthologies who are raising money for Simon On The Streets, a charity offering street-based support to the homeless. It’s a cover of In The Bleak Midwinter, which goes into a couple of verses I wrote myself entitled If You Get Lonely This Christmas. You can view it below, and please DONATE via the following link:

So – live shows are all done for this year, but already some good stuff gonna be happening in the new year – a new EP in Feb/March (release plans coming soon!), hopefully will be doing some touring, and also a first TV appearance on Channel 4.
That’s all for now, as always keep checking the ‘live’ tab for new tour dates, some new ones for 2012 there already.
Merry Christmas/Nadolig Llawen,
