After five years of rehearsing, songwriting, recording and intermittent gigging, we feel it’s time for Dog Moon Howl to wind things down. We’re opting for the popular showbiz euphemism “extended hiatus”.
Unfortunately, for unrelated reasons we’ve had to pull out of the October gig at Nice’N’Sleazy, so as it stands we’ll no longer be active after our upcoming support slot with Lionize at the ABC2 on August 1st. We may take the very occasional gig if we get the right offer but we won’t be chasing live work or working on new material for the foreseeable future.
There’s no bad blood involved, not even musical differences. In fact we’ll be continuing to work together, though on a very different project. More news on that soon.
Anybody who wants a last hurrah with the band can head over to dogmoonhowl.bandcamp.com for half price tickets to the ABC2 show. In the meantime, thanks to those of you (family, friends, bands, bloggers and broadcasters) who’ve supported us over the years.
We’re booking new live dates at the moment (contact us on email@example.com for gig enquiries) and we’ve already got a couple of choice dates for your diaries:
On Mon 01 Aug we’re at The ABC 2, Glasgow for a return engagement with the mighty Lionize. Also playing will be Mantis Taboggan and The Last Gasp. We’ll have tickets for sale at crazy-knock-down-blow-out-how-do-they-do-it discounts very soon. Watch this space.
Sun 08 Oct sees us back at Nice’N’Sleazy, Glasgow with Serpent Kings, as part of their UK tour (+ Warhead + TBC).
Our new EP, These Days, is available now via Bandcamp on CD and pay-what-you-want download. The full digital release (iTunes, Amazon etc. plus streaming via Spotify et al) starts rolling out today, so expect to see the EP on those services and more ove rthe coming week.
The new Dog Moon Howl EP is to be called These Days and will be released (CD/download) during the month of March, which this year follows hot on the heels of February. The actual date is not yet set, but we’re planning an end-of-the-month launch gig in Glasgow, so, you know, expect it around the end of the month. Ish. More news on this soon, including a teaser track to be brought to you via the magic of YouTube.
Craig and Ally (The Craig Hughes Two) will also soon be releasing the live-in-the-studio mini album Off the Cuff – head on over to www.craighughes.net for more on that one.
