NEWS: Evil Scarecrow road appeal; Thundermother get Road Fever and Gus G's Revolution

Evil Scarecrow van appeal

BANDS are always on seeking fans to pledge to release albums...but Evil Scarecrow want fans to pledge so they can get a new van! Maybe it's the sense of guilt they feel for pulling their Belfast date earlier this year when their previous van broke down...

Anyway they're promising pledgers who contribute will get some goodies. Here's what the band said

"A New Pledge campaign to keep us on the road! A chance to get our old out-of-print back catalogue. That’s right, we’re repressing all of our old CDs!", the band said speaking collectively with one spooky voice..

"We need a new van to keep the Evil Scarecrow live show rolling, help us stay on the road! The Evil Scarecrow live show is the best representation of the band. We want to keep touring and getting our live show to fans old and new around the UK and beyond!

"Touring and equipment are expensive, more expensive than most bands let on, and over the years it has bled our bank accounts dry leaving us with a bit of a conundrum, we need a new van before ours completely falls to pieces and we would like to buy one that will last us for a long time and house us for longer journeys so that we can reach our fans far and wide. With your support we can raise enough cash through Pledge sales to buy a decent van and keep this show on the road!

T"o achieve this we’re releasing some exclusive goodies: our acoustic shows and reprinting our out-of-stock back catalogue. So, get pledging at the link below and help us make sure we can keep touring.

Thundermother second album release date revealed

THE few who managed to see the ferociously joyous rock of Thundermother's Belfast performance in Belfast know that this five-piece deliver straightforward hard rockin'.

The band are now set to release their second abum 'Road Fever' on September 4th.

For those of you not in the loop so far Thundermother was born in 2010 when guitarist and southern Swede Filippa Nässil wanted to play rock 'n' roll and moved to Stockholm to pursue her dream.
 She found her first partner in crime, guitarist Giorgia Carteri in Stockholm who also followed her own dreams of playing music, coming all the way from Italy.

After numerous ordeals with other musicians they have finally found the right group of people with right motives and Rock'N'Roll in their heart. Tilda Stenqvist on drums, Linda Ström at the bass and the singer Clare Cunningham born and raised in Ireland.
 They're having fun and it's noticeable on-stage. Pure enjoyment and Rock'N'Roll deep from their bones. Hardrock-girls from around the world now united to do one sole thing, to play together and travel on the roads.
