UK Tour News - Part 1



Sorry we've been lazy with updates about our UK tour here on our blog (though we do update quite a bit on Myspace, Facebook and Twitter - those are shorter, hehehe), but it's been an extremely busy week for us so far as we've played 4 shows so far in just 6 days (and there were hours of travelling around on buses + vans too)! So far, these are the ones we've already done:

19th March - Couple Live in Manchester @ Academy 2, Uni. of Manchester Students' Union
21st March - Dirty Water Club @ The Stag's Head, London
22nd March - Liverpool Malaysian Night @ Mountford Hall, Uni. of Liverpool
23rd March - Couple Live in Manchester @ Bumper, Liverpool

As you all might have known if you've been following us on Myspace, Facebook and Twitter (if you haven't, then what are you waiting for?), our beloved bassist Masrin actually flew with us to the UK, but just about 2-3 hours after arriving he got a call from Malaysia saying that his mom was in critical condition in hospital, and after a long hard deliberation he decided that he had to go back to Malaysia to be with her. His mom passed away 2 days after that and we're glad that he managed to get back to Malaysia in time to see her. Please spare a prayer or two for her, God rest her soul.

With Masrin gone, we were scrambling to find a replacement bassist, and thank God the kids we were bunking with in Manchester knew of one, and apparently my roommate there's also a bassist too. So we'd like to take this opportunity to extend our deepest gratitude to Din and Adam for helping out on bass duty throughout this UK tour. I know it must be real hard trying to learn 16 songs in such a short span of time, so guys, thanks so much for putting on a game face and getting on the stage with us. We're forever in debt.

We'll talk more about the tour later (and upload pictures too), but for now the awesome teaser video above (shot by the Ikan Paos Collective, who's following us around here and hopefully we can make a tour documentary out of it - DVD anyone?) and the video below (from a media session we did in Manchester) can tell a bit of the story:
