So what a year!
We worked our balls off during our first year of Shapes, gigging as much as possible and getting round as much of the country as possible.

We want to thank all the people that have supported us in 08, mostly the people who come to watch us, and also the bands we've met along the way and the lovely promoters who've looked after us, as well as the lovely reviewers who kindly wrote good things about us.

Here's a brief account of what we got up to in 2008:
Started gigging without having fully written a set, but couldn't wait to get started.
Wrote and recorded our debut EP and released it through Godmonkey Recordings.
Took on a 2 week tour with OK Pilot.
Went on tour with Exeter's Targets
Took Conquistadors on the road for a week
Went out on tour with our good mates Blakfish
Joined the BSM Xmas tour for a few dates.
Outside of tour dates we also played some awesome shows including Rapturefest, Bonefest, Blakfish EP launch, and even took part in the BSM 5-a-side football comp with Blakfish, which was a sweaty, sicky, drunken, rowdy mess!

Now as we draw to a close of 08, we're really looking forward to 09, with a lot of exciting things in the pipeline:
We'll be recording a 5 or 6 track EP in January.
10 date tour in February.EP release and nice big fat tour with No Kilter in May
And a few other cheeky surprises to be announced soon too.

Again, thanks for all the support and see you in 2009!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year MoFos!!!!!
