The Aeroplanes Christmas gig is not happening this year. The band is prioritising the follow-up album to Welcome, Stranger! (which is now available from the website for the first time, follow the link here).
The recordings have already started and some titles that have emerged so far include ‘Half A Crown’, ‘Snipers’ and ‘Waking Up In The Ghost Removal Van’. There are rumours of guest guitarists, a choir and a gamelan orchestra. Also, Gerard’s long-awaited Selected Poems & Lyrics should be out this year. Watch this space!
