We’ve returned from our triumphant Euro-bout To Grow A Beard Tour, and boy are our beards longer than ever. In between back-to-back sold out shows at London’s iconic Borderline, first-ever visits to Denmark and Ireland (including sold-out shows in Copenhagen and Dublin), and massive sold-out gigs in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Manchester, Bristol, Frankfurt and a bunch more, we also managed to convince over 7 people to “probably grow a beard if my girlfriend lets me”.
We also had the good folk at Rockpalast film our gig in Cologne for broadcast during March – you can check out the live footage, interview and special acoustic performance right here. Plus, if you want to read some words written by pro-beard people, here are some gig reviews from Nottingham and Glasgow. Or, if you’d just like to feel really good about beards, stroke your beard right now.
Yes, it was a wild and beardy time had by all. Thanks again Europe, we’ll see you again real soon…
Big news Australia, we’re releasing what may well be the definitive beard-related album and we’re thrilled to announce this massive Australasian tour to launch it…
Our EURO-BOUT TO GROW A BEARD TOUR is shaping up to not only be our biggest international tour yet, but also our most beardy. We’ve already added an extra show at The Borderline in London, sold out our Copenhagen show, moved our Dublin and Hamburg shows to bigger venues, and lots of other shows are filling up fast. If you’re in Germany, The Netherlands, Denmark, Ireland, Scotland or England, don’t miss out on seeing this year’s most beard-related musical event.
PLUS our show at The Underground in Cologne is being filmed and broadcast by the good bearded folk at Rockpalast, spreading the bearded feeling all over Germany. Great stuff.
We’re also looking forward to visiting THIS statue again in Amsterdam… Last time we were there we spent so long admiring it that we almost missed the gig…
It’s going to be a massive 2014, especially in the areas of beards, beard-growing and beard-related songs. We trust that by now your new-years-resolution beards are coming along nicely, so for some extra encouragement, here’s a list of things that we are planning for 2014…
-Have really good beards
-Embark on our biggest ever European Tour in February
-Admire our beards in the mirror
-Release our 4th album about beards
-Make some filmclips
-Have even better beards
-Head back to Byron Bay Bluesfest for more beard-filled frivolity
-Head off on a MASSIVE Australian tour – details coming soon.
-Be generally bearded in all areas of life
Also, as a late Christmas present, here’s the classic hit single If Your Dad Doesn’t Have a Beard You’ve Got Two Mums for you to enjoy once more:
We’ve been listening to our first three albums about beards and we’ve decided that they’re just not beardy enough. To rectify this we’ve been busy recording our fourth album, which will be comprised entirely of songs about beards. The album should be ready mid 2014. Oh yeah. Beards.
