Afternoon Delvers, hope you’re all having an ideal bank holiday Monday. We’re currently in Ireland in a tiny place called Myrtleville, which is bloomin’ amazing! We reached a big landmark on tour yesterday as we played our 125th gig, so we are officially halfway through and over the hill! We can’t believe we’ve played 125 gigs already, it’s been so so good! Anyway, have a look at some of the latest photos of tour below, there’s some crackers in there! We’re back from Ireland on the 2nd of September and will be gigging around the Manchester and Liverpool area and then heading north into bonny wee Scotland!
