Delighted to present our first ever AI created video for “Woe” which is taken from our recent “Hard Cold Fire” album. The video was created by Roni Abramowsky for Firma Productions and has a stark cinematic look to it. You can watch below…
“Hard Cold Fire” is out now on Marshall Records. Stream/buy/listen HERE
“Hard Cold Fire” is finally out right now! It’s been a crazy old journey over the last 33 years to get to this point but here it is, album #16. Feedback on the advance songs has been killer as have the reviews but most importantly you can now hear it yourselves…You can buy/listen below and HERE
There are a few album release ‘instores’ next week where we will be playing the new album in full, they’re all sold out bar Oxford but rest assured there’s a full ‘proper’ Hard Cold Fire tour coming later in the year. All the shows confirmed to date (and festivals etc) are on the main site here
Finally (for now!) a huge thanks to all our friends out there who have bought our records, gig tickets and merch and stayed with us through the pandemic, sharing your stories and cheering us on. Without you we wouldn’t be here, so thank you from the very bottom of our dark, twisted, lovely hearts.
As we always say, we couldn’t do this without you folks!
Now strap in, crank the volume and enjoy “Hard Cold Fire”!
Extremely happy to confirm our 16th album “HARD COLD FIRE” will be released on 5th May, brought to you via Marshall Records. We’re hugely proud of the album and delighted to share cover, track list and the pre-order info today.

Delighted to confirm Andy is taking part in the Contrast Arts Festival in Mallorca on 26th November, 2022 where he’ll be playing T? songs & be accompanied by a string section for a portion of the set (& not just Diane ). Tix/infocontrastmallorca.com
We are pleased to announce a new set of dates for the UK this coming November and December. This tour will be different to our last few tours in that we are, firstly playing places/venues that we have not played for a very very long time or indeed if before at all. Some were even on our earliest of tours and so could not be accommodated on more recent runs.
Secondly, as well as going back to places ‘from our past’ we will also be going back to songs from our past!! We will have a totally different set list to that which we had on the ‘greatest hits’ and more recent ‘album’ tours. We will be picking songs from our old catalogues as well as a few from our forthcoming new album. it will be loud and noisy!!! It may well also be the last time that we play some of these songs.
So come along to hear the old, the new and the noisy…and be aware that these shows will be much more up close and personal!
Now that the majority of the re-scheduled “30th Anniversary” shows are done (And what a huge success they were, thank you all so much!) we’re now starting a run of summer festivals. A couple have been cancelled and a few new ones added so please check the TOUR PAGE to see exactly where we will be and when this summer. Looking forwarding to seeing you all in the great outdoors soon!
