Radio X session and interview

InterviewMusic Performance

The band records a three-tracks live session for Radio X [Link to Session], including LunaticSupernatural, You Opened Up My Heart, and I Saw A Ghost. In an interview, Aaron talks to Kennedy about the band’s progress.

We’ve got a strong commitment to memorable melodies…We’re ‘all killer no filler’…I spent a lot of time when we first started out, trying to sound more like everybody else, trying to sound more indy. But I’ve got a reasonable range and as I’ve developed and become more confident in what I’m doing it’s become more honest and truthful. It seems to be working.

The Ritz Manchester concert

Music Performance

The band play at the Ritz, Manchester, to a sold-out crowd of 1500. This is the first performance of Through The Shadows. As the band takes a bow, James gives a message to the fans:

We all go to work just like you. We all have day jobs just like you. We don’t have anyone who’s giving us loads of money. So the fact that you are all coming out to spend money on us. Everything you spend comes straight back into this band. Thank you very much. Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

The Sound Check

Music Performance

The band appear on The Sound Check, playing I Saw A Ghost, Forever In Your Debt. Aaron:

I Saw A Ghost came in a dark morning. As you can image by the lyrics it’s quite a sombre track…what I try to do in the lyrics is write stuff that people are feeling, but can’t articulate.
