Before I get to the meat of this blog, we just want to tell you all that for January, you can download our two albums for ‘Pay What You Want’ from our Bandcame store. Take a look and pay £0 or pay £1,000,000 – Your Choice
With that out the way – Happy New Year you wonderful people. Did you have a great Christmas?
Us BR boys enjoyed a few nights in each other’s company over the festive period. The annual McEntee Christmas shindig was once again the place to be and we also had a more relaxed and chilled New Years Eve round my house. Despite being ill from the day I broke from work until the day I went back to work, I had a great Christmas
2014 was a pretty uneventful year for the band due to us having a massive year in everything other than the band. We both welcomed new additions to our families. Michael opened The Big Comfy Bookshop and is at the shop 24/7. I started taking my photography to the next level and also started Coates & Stain Wedding Photography.
Our thoughts are now turning to what will happen to Barricades Rise in 2015……..
Truth be told we are excited to meet up and start writing and recording for album 3. It would be great if this is ready for release before the year is out too. There’s no pressure on us doing this but we want to do it. We will gig a little more than last year but until we have the new album out, we will be selective on that front.
We will of course update you with our progress and we hope 2015 brings you all you want from life.
ps, a massive thank you to all that came to our last gig of the year at Michael’s shop on 19th December. We were rough, we broke strings and we sang like it was going out of fashion. A proper BR gig.
