Firstly, Happy New Year to you all, hope you had an enjoyable holiday period. This has included what, is to our knowledge, our first foreign language review. We are working hard to try and drum Gulf Stream Nights - John Joseph Hall - Rock Me On The Water a bit more of interest in the single and are hoping to get some radio play for it. We are also still trying to put the bill together for our single launch party which will take place at the Ram and Shackle, Fallowfield on 29th January.
Finally, a quick look back at what was Making Plans - City Reign - Making Plans great year of We made a lot of big steps forward as a band, setting up the label, recording and releasing our debut single. Posted by City Reign at No comments:. Thursday, 14 January Three days with the Loose Women So Wednesday was a busy day for us, and I think we all really enjoyed it.
We played a little acoustic set and had a little a chat with Caroline Renni on her drive time show on South Manchester's All fm. We really enjoyed playing a couple of our electric songs slightly differently with the acoustic guitars and simple drums, hopefully it sounded good to the lovely listeners.
We should be getting a copy of the show quite soon so we'll find a way to hear it again for those that missed it going out live. Thanks again to Caroline for having us on, it was good fun. After that we whisked ourselves into town to sound check at Night and Day Cafe. We were on a bill with an acoustic singer songwriter which I really Making Plans - City Reign - Making Plans. The guy had a really interesting voice, and Footfetish - Shot_fireR - Disappointment had some interesting lyrics.
Our set went pretty well, it felt pretty good to get the amps up nice and Interspecific Coalesce - Flesh Consumed - Ecliptic Dimensions Of Suffering and kick out the songs with the full electric line up after the earlier acoustic set. It was a quiet Wednesday night in from the snow, but I think everyone there had a good night. Thanks to all those who came down to see us, much appreciated as always.
We've got quite a few photos from the two events last night that we're going to sort through, and cherry pick the best ones and get em up on the myspace for your viewing pleasure. Making Plans - City Reign - Making Plans live gig is 11th Feb at Dry Bar in Manchester, so put it in your diaries.
We should have hard copies of the CD available to buy there for those of you looking to get hold of your own copy. Look forward to seeing you there. Monday, 11 January gets going. So is over, and City Reign finished the year on a productive note by completing the upload of the fully mastered Daybreak EP to the myspace page.
Particular thanks though to Dan Parry for all his hard work in helping us get it recorded and also Andy Baldwin for getting it mastered for us. We have had some encouraging feedback from a few people who have heard the record, and again thanks very much for that, but we are hopeful that we can have many more people listen to it and enjoy it. There are links to these from both, or you can just search Making Plans - City Reign - Making Plans name of the band and you should be able to find them.
