Saturday 22nd March – The Borderline, London (including Golden Ticket option)
Friday 28th March – Gulliver’s, Manchester
Saturday 29th March – The Goldmine Centre, Walsall
Sunday 30th March – The Louisiana, Bristol
LONDON is going to be an extra-special affair – there’s a regular gig ticket thing, then for eager beavers there’s a GOLDEN TICKET. For an extra few quid you can get to see Chris and Davros do an acoustic set, get a signed poster and a photo op for those of you who want one. Plus, Wayne and Pete will be on tea-making duties. Regular doors will be 7pm, and Role Models are supporting. One more TBA. Make sure you get in early, there are only 50 of these GOLDEN TICKETS available.
Ticket links are all on the gigs page. It’d be lovely to see you all there.
Have a good Christmas. There’s an idea. Gig tickets make excellent gifts.
PS. You’ve got just over one week left to vote for us (or whoever else you like) in the nomination round of the Pure Rawk Awards – click here to get involved…
2013 has been a great year for Eureka Machines. Highlights included the fantastically successful Pledge campaign for our third album ‘Remain In Hope’, which achieved miles above and beyond what we’d ever hoped for; a brilliant headline tour where we sold out gigs in Glasgow, London and Nottingham; the tour with The Wildhearts where we successfully converted another bunch of wonderful people; and of course the birth of the first two Eureka Machines children (alright, I’m counting this year as starting towards the back end of last year, because it kind of did, for us).
Plus we got to raise a bunch of cash to give to our friend Tim Smith, which we couldn’t have done without you lot.
I try not to harp on about this too much, but we have achieved all this with only YOUR HELP… you are our PR company, our radio pluggers, our agents and our fundraisers. We are, as ever, bowled over by your consistent support for our group and we wanted to say thanks to you all for all of this.
During our Pledge campaign, superfan Lee pledged for us to do a cover of one of his (and our) favourite songs, ‘Heroes‘, by David Bowie (thanks Lee). We’ve souped it up a bit and overlayed it with a video retrospective of the year with our pals at AshTV. Here it is. As ever, please share it about with your pals on Facebook, Twitter et al.
(Of course, extra significance was given to this when, seemingly from nowhere, Bowie himself released one of the albums of the year.)
You can also download a hi-res or lo-res mp3 of the track here, so you can play it whenever you like. (Please mention this when you share it.)
To celebrate a great year for us (and hopefully for you too), here‘s a special deal on our remaining t-shirt stock. For a limited time only, the ‘Crest’ and ‘Remain In Hope’ shirts are HALF PRICE, at £7, which means that even with postage (if you’re in the UK), then it comes in at under a tenner for a shirt. Surely this would make a better gift than the socks you had imagined buying for your favourite EM fan this Yuletide season.
There is only a handful of each design left, so it’d be a good idea to get in there early. Sizes are the usual M, L, XL and XXL, plus a girly slim fit style in medium.
This deal will completely and pointlessly contradict usual Christmas/New Year etiquette and end at the start of January.
Last date to order to guarantee delivery for Christmas is Tuesday 17 December. The deal will carry on after that, but obviously they won’t arrive ’til afterwards.
All purchases come with a free badge, for good measure!
