At least year’s Fell Foot Sound festival, I joined forces with the previous players of the “Sonic Cauldron” concert for a second time. Here, myself, Katie Harkin (Sky Larkin, Sleater-Kinney, Wild Beasts), Tom Evans (Vessels) & Jenna Isherwood (Invisible Cities) played a set of new and old Juffage songs, including “Stop Making Music”. Originally from 2011’s Semicircle, this radically different version is the only time this song has been played as part of a group.
The single is now available to stream and buy from the Juffage Bandcamp page.
In other news, I’m heading out for another UK Tour beginning in August.
Joan of Arc’s EU tour has been cancelled, so, sadly is this show on the 18th.
All other solo shows remain unaffected and are going ahead as scheduled!

LIVING: LOTS OF IT
New album nearing completion, ArcTanGent Festival, Guardian, Spin Magazine…
14 April 2015
Ok, things are happening. First, I’ve been locked in Greenmount Studios mixing the final chunks of the new record. There’s lots to talk about, but I really want this thing to speak for itself. Let’s just say it’s more diverse than Semicircle, yet somehow simultaneously places greater emphasis on both dense drone and bulletproof pop songs.
Speaking of Semicircle, the record was recenty feaured in a Guardian list for the “101 Strangest Records on Spotify”, mentioning “hot, crunchy blood”, and “heavywight tape-manipulating chop-n-pop”. Click here to read the full review.
Next, check out Katie Harkin (who is playing/singing all over my new record) talking about her recent months touring with Sleater-Kinney in SPIN Magazine, and casually namedropping said forthcoming record.
Finaly, I’ve also been asked to play this years fantastic ArcTanGent Festival. This is going to be off the chain, people!
