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!
In other news, the nominations for the annual and excellent Pure Rawk Awards are up – go here to vote:
As ever, don’t feel bound to voting for us – just get involved – any type of vote is a vote for independence and the underground scene.
Finally, there’ll be a bit of a tour announcement in a week or two. Keep some weekends in March free
We’re having a bit of a break to regroup and work out what we’re doing next. But first, we’ve one last gig of the year – supporting SPACEHOG at The Cockpit in Leeds on Wednesday October 2nd. Opening are our LS6 pals The Reacharounds. We’re doing a 40-45 minute main support set, and you’d be wise to catch this one.
In the meantime (to coin a phrase), Chris has been working hard on Ginger’s new Pledge campaign, and has been keeping an overly comprehensive blog here. You should pledge on this one, it’s coming out really well.
In other news… we’re looking at booking some gigs early next year, so get in touch if you’re interested.
There’s all sorts of ideas in the pipeline, so stick with us and see you all soon.

Well, that tour was about the most fun you can have whilst not sunbathing in a swimming pool full of Swarfega. Thanks to all those who turned out to see us on our best-attended and favourite bunch of gigs so far. It was a real honour to play those songs for you and a privilege to see everyone (seemingly) having a great time. We certainly did. Highlights included our first-ever sold-out gig (Glasgow), our busiest ever London gig (at the ever-brilliant Borderline) and the Leeds spectacular (with the amazing Scaramanga Six). It was all brilliant, though, and we’re looking forward to the next one…
… Which is this one… once again supporting the mighty Wildhearts, with the equally brilliant Baby Godzilla opening proceedings.

Please go to our gigs page for links to tickets and such.
After that, we’re looking to do some gigs in September/October/November-ish, so keep your peepers peeped/get in touch if you’re a promoter type.
There’ll be a few interesting bits between now and then too, so keep checking on the Eureka Machines Facebook page while you’re at it.
That’s it for now, cheers to you all once again.
The tour dates are going immensely well. We had our first (ever!) sold out gig, in Glasgow, so thanks to all for coming to that one. It was properly brilliant. This weekend we’ve been down south to That London and surrounding areas, and that went amazingly too.
Next up are Hull and Leeds. Check the gigs page as ever for details. Leeds is selling particularly well so do make sure you get a ticket (links on the gigs page again).
The raffle is over, but there will still be a few people waiting for their CDs and hence up for a prize. Go here to check your numbers. The prizes will be sent out next week for this. The numbers will stay up until the end of May for any stragglers.
All Pledge parcels have gone out now. Hooray. That went pretty well didn’t it?
A couple of the Pledge songs are still to be done but aiming to get those done this and next week. Finishing the album then going straight out on tour was, in retrospect, slightly too high a workload to get every single thing done. But we’re back on it and everything will be with you soon.
See you at some of the gigs, hopefully!
