Our shows for 2017 are now well underway. A thoroughly eventful and full-throttle weekend in the Netherlands playing jolly fun gigs at our favourite squats has just passed (we’re totally tatered btw), and now we do the push-ups for our festival season starting April 29th in Liverpool! Expect pics to be posted on our social media promtly and abruptly.
Hark! for now x
Yes, we’re a tad on the quiet side at the moment. Calm before the storm and that…
We’ve just announced a bucketload of dates for this year though…
Take a jibe over to the GIGS OF MIRTH page to see where we are, or aren’t – if you planned to avoid us…
A much-belated and extremely groggy-sounding HAPPY NEW YEAR to all our mirthful comradery. Tankards firmly in the air to anyone in the last year that came to a show or bought our new album or did anything to cheer on the good ship…
There is wonderful joyous news that the much-beloved couple Piss-in-the-wind-Mindy & Shitluck (aka Grace & Loz) are expecting a wee lil’ piratino this year! That’s right, already on it with “Seas of Mirth: Generation 2”. Although with a tear of joy comes a tear of sadness as this means Mindy can no longer take on Mirth duties. Accordions don’t mix that well with pregnant bellies y’know… neither does drinking grog all night/loud music/long voyages in a stinkin’ vehicle. So let’s raise our vessels once again to one of our dearest family members and to exciting new chapters and adventures! You will be horrendously missed. Shitluck will still be bowing his strings from the deep for now… (mainly because we’ve chained him).
So after a sportingly celebracious nautical knees-up show in Glastonbury Town on NYE, we’re going to lock ourselves away for a few months to spawn some new ridiculous material (of the musical kind, that is). Expect some new videos in that time though as we do endeavour to keep our faithful sufficiently entertained…
Sea you soon
Yo ho ho and a bottle of grognog etc..
We’ve had a stupendously exciting year (well, for us anyway). What with our second album finally being unleashed upon the oceans and some shows and experiences to remember, we look banck and wince a little…
…BUT IT’S NOT OVER YET!!!!!!
There are still a couple of shows left – DERBY on Fri 23rd Dec at The Venue and GLASTONBURY Assembly Rooms on New Year’s Eve (the FantaSea Ball)
We’ve also got some mega deals upon the >> Seas Of Merch << you can get a new album CD, a T shirt, an EP download and some badges – all for just £17.99!! This should be going on until the frost clears. Do indulge…
…and have a merry one whatever you’re doing.
RESPECT. Mirth XD
Dung! Sadly this voyage is coming to a close this weekend. Fortunately, if you reside in the South East of the country, you can come help us wreck the shop! We’ll be in LONDON on Fri at Jamboree (tickets here – save £2!) and then LEWES on Sat at the Lamb (FREE ENTRY). So raise your jibs and dance your jigs – let’s smash this mother!
So we’re off today! Not far initially – Leicester at Pi Br tonight. The hitting the Far East… …coast, tomorrow, Lowestoft, to be precise. We’ll be playing the new album plus a few choice Mirth classics. Can’t wait to sea you there!
In other news, some excellent press has appeared in the shape of a mixtape/album review. Big loud shout out to Sam for asking us to compile this, we had lots of fun selecting!
The #harktour spans the English shores this autumn… We’re flumped from playing 13 festivals over the summer, but a feast of bread and meat, and some cold showers should do the trick in getting us ready and raring to go… Sea you at a town near you!
The wondrous Nottingham publication caught up with us on the banks of the river Trent. Read the full interview HERE – enjoy me odes!
Video for the title track to the new album (out now!)
Get your navigation lights out – it gets a bit dark…
That’s right you mirthy rascals, the album we’ve been working on for the last four years finally gets unleashed upon the oceans. We’re extremely chuffed with it and hope you enjoy hearing it as much as we’ve enjoyed making it. It’s released 8th July globally on I’m Not From London Records. That means now! So you can order the beast on the following platforms. Click the links!
Massive respect to Stuart Faulkner for his arty skills!
