We have posted an official apology to fans for our lack of gigs this year. The statement reads: ‘Our frustrating inactivity has been caused by injuries sustained on the US tour last November. Our new recordings have also taken a backseat for the same reasons. BUT our Guildford date on the 28th September is definitely on – even if Gal has to come on stage in a wheelchair.
We shall release a twelve track compilation of our rock and metal recordings. The album, called DIRTY METAL: GONADS, is due out in July as a download. A physical release may follow.
Occasional Gonads backing vocalist Leah McCaffrey will release her own three-track debut e.p. via our own Soitainly label this Summer. The e.p. will include her classic re-arrangement of Cock Sparrer’s ‘East End Girl’.
We shall play the Holroyd Arms in Guildford, Surrey on Friday 28th September, supported by No Lip. This is our only UK gig this year and will consist of an hour-long retro ‘pure punk for row people set’.
