The summer is beating down strong in the Netherlands today! I arrived from the UK yesterday as we have many things to do on stage and in the studio. Firstly I’d like to mention that we have some great gigs coming up with all 8 of us on stage – yes people, that means we have the cheeky horns under a spotlight on stage with us too. Starting this weekend, we have performances at Reuring Festival, andSupernatural Festival, in the Netherlands. Coming up, we also have North Sea Round Town at the Zuiderpark People Village (Grand Départ Tour De France), Big Rivers Festival and then Blue Balls in Switzerland. Oh yes! We’ll be keeping busy…
Soon we will be releasing ‘Laura Vane & The Vipertones, The Remixes’ LP. This has been a long time coming, and we can’t wait to share some of the brilliant remixes we’ve had in from special talents such as Drawbar, AIFF, Part Time Heroes, Diesler and more. If you felt a connection with our music and us in the first album, this will give you a really exciting new perspective on the songs you already know and love. There are some absolute corkers in there! It will be coming out on Unique Records next month, so get saving those pennies and get yourself a copy!
Right now… last week the sun was strong and the sea was warming up, Brighton beach was buzzing with lobster coloured tourists, kids and ice creams, and people seriously getting into their summer wardrobe… I even had the week free! However, last week I was determined to power through with ideas for the second Vipertones album, which meant that I needed a space without distraction. The sun, sea and sand proved to be a distraction…boo. Anyway! I got a load of new ideas together and fired them over to the guys to listen to. We’re all getting really excited about the new material we’re writing and we promise to keep you updated on how things are going with that.
I guess that’s it for now campers, I hope you have some wonderful plans for the next few weeks, including a little trip to see us perform near you! Yay! Laters, Laura x
