I am also pleased to say that we are currently finalising the details and design for the vinyl release of 'A Good Way To Bury Bad News'. It's looking great and I can't wait to have the finished product in my hands! I'll have more details and pre-order links for you soon!

Finally, some of you will be aware that I broke my wrist at the start of the January tour with Ellen Cox. We managed to continue the trip and had a fantastic time but if any of you are curious as to how I managed to play guitar with a cast on, here is a nice video from the Glasgow show. It was filmed and edited by my good friend Tim Courtney.
