Having been back in London for around four hours now, it seemed like a proper thank you was in order while still riding high on the fumes of a few fantastic days out on tour in France and Belgium with Női Kabát. A massive thanks to Coco and the Romance Moderne crew in Brussels, along with Café Central for the hospitality. Thanks to Rebecca, Agathe, Mateo and the Le Klub folks in Paris for a fun night that left us completely satisfied and drained of energy (in a good way!). Thanks to Nicholas, Isaure and the DMA Gallerie folk in Rennes for a packed and crazed night. It was a a grand trip. And of course Dee, Jonas and Mark for the grand times on the road. See some of you again in May! A selection of photos from the trip below. Credits to Rob DSOAudio, Anna Bat and Karen Bach for some of the live photos.
You’re now looking at it. The upgraded softriot.com. The old design was getting to five years old and was starting to get a bit grating. There’s still a few things to be done to this version, including the proper functioning store but that’ll come next month when there’s time to tackle the monster that it is.

Nevertheless they’re still an interesting listening. This will be released as part on the ongoing digital 7″ series by American web-label Everything Is Chemical entitled EIC 7″. This release comes out 13 March 2014. More details to come next month!
There’s a few other things coming out this year but you’ll have to wait for more news on that as it comes…
