“If I was arrogant enough to think I’d heard every band in Manchester, I’d see fit to herald Easter as the band near the start of their trip most likely to gain much greater mass appeal.

Just in case you missed this…
When we played Cardiff in November we did a radio session for The Waiting Room which aired online several times before Xmas, as it’s a syndicated show. We played a few new tracks that had never been recorded before. They sound pretty rough and raw but check them out anyway!
You can also hear an interview with Tom that was recorded at about 4am in “a bit” of a haze. Plus there is a load of other music on the show:
Happy New Year!
We are booking a tour at the moment for end of March/early April. Get in touch if you can help out with a show, we want to get out on the road again. Email us: contact [at] easterband.co.uk.
Few things we haven’t mentioned here…we were #2 in Folly of Youth blog’s Top Ten Albums of 2012. Total shame that he won’t be around for a while (or ever!). He’s been one of our keenest supporters. Cheers to “The Archivist!!!” Check the list out here:
We somehow made it into the Cloud Sound’s Festive Bestive! Cheers! Check the podcast out here:
We also came in at #17 in Sic Magazine’s Releases of 2012 and “Somethin’ American” was #32 in the Tracks of the Year feature:
Off Your Sonar’s round up of 2012 features “Innocence Man” too, some sweet albums listed:
Keep your eyes peeled for a tour announcement! See you on 25th in MCR.
Cheers to everyone who came to see us in Cardiff, Stoke, Glasgow, Edinburgh and back home at the Black Lion too. We have been asked to open for MONO at Sound Control this Sunday. See you there.
We have a really good Manchester gig to announce for January soon and we are working hard on booking a longer tour for some time in Spring.
