After months of planning and thinking, I'm finally in the throws of making Honour Before Glory a fully fledged band. I don't want to mislead, the crux of my music making will still be myself developing songs in a studio, but the ability to recreate these songs live was always an ambition of some sort.
Joining me wil be collaborators from the studio, like Simon Fogal (from I Like Trains), as well as some friends from previous lives. I'll post some updates on how we're going but initial steps are going very well.
For those expecting a return to touring and gigging akin to that in Forward, Russia, they would be very much mistaken. Because the band exists doesn't mean we'll be playing out all the time. It's for the special occasion, to be cherished when it occurs. We only have plans to play a handful of shows by the end of the year, if that
But I've waffled too much. We're playing our first gig in March - it's free - and here are the details:
FRIDAY 12th MARCH
Honour Before Glory + Fran Rodgers + Yanni Montoya
Brudenell Social Club, Leeds
7.30pm Doors / Free Entry
Soundtrack to this post: Wild Beasts, PJ Harvery & John Parish
