Wrapping up 2012

New line up, new songs and our infamous Christmas party

It’s high time we updated our adoring/adorable public with Leatherat news. If you think things have been a bit quiet here, I promise that’s no reflection of what’s been going on behind the scenes!

Some of you will have already met our new Drummer, Lee Smith. Lee has made a couple of public appearances since he joined and we hope you’ll agree is a damned fine addition to the band. But you may remember we had another hole to fill and I’m pleased to announce we’ve done just that!

Please give a rousing Leatherat welcome to our newest guitarist… James Foley. James is busy rehearsing in the run up to our Christmas shin-dig where he will make his debut appearance with the band. We’re really pleased to have brought James on board and early indications show that he will bring a fantastic new dynamic to the band both in terms of style and sound (James playing both acoustic and electric guitars… but not at the same time you understand). Welcome aboard James!!!

Did I mention a Christmas shin-dig?! Ah, yes… Details for the show can be found here or here on facebook. Support comes in the shape of the mighty Jackhammer (our good friends from Crowle) and the Holly Perkins Band.

We will most definitely be debuting some new, unrecorded Leatherat material at the Christmas show. We’re busy writing songs for a new album that we hope to release in 2013 – after all, we have to bring something new and exciting to the festival crowds! We’ve got a great line up already confirmed for nest year but for now our lips must remain sealed.

That’s it for now and I hope that brings you right up to speed with all things Leatherat. See you on Saturday December 22nd!
