Back from the two week tour with Női Kabát for around a week now and in reflection it was a fantastic time. All of the shows were fantastic, with great live performances, incredible hospitality and enthusiastic crowds. The "hiccups" on the tour seemed relatively minor in comparison, including a van breakdown en route to our final show in Köln which resulting in having to cancel the performances at the show.
Incidental photos of the tour can be found over at the Soft Riot Facebook page. There’s more lined up for the fall, including possible dates in Glasgow, Moscow and a number of shows in mainland Europe. More on that to come! Thanks again to all those who came out to the shows!
An interview the the Belgian magazine Dark Entries was done leading up to this coming Saturday’s show at AntiFabrik for Obscuur Wavegeteef in Antwerp, BE. The inteview was translated into Dutch for the local readers but you can read the original English translation below.
The SOFT RIOT / NŐI KÁBAT tour commences this Thursday in London! All of the venue details for the shows can be found through the links in the venue listings below. It should a great time and both bands look forward to seeing all you good people out there. Thanks.
With the new album FICTION PREDICTION finally being released next month, Other Voices Records and Volar Records are offering this very budget-savvy (only €2!) digital download of one of the album tracks, “Your Own Private Underworld” as a single with an additional track called “You’ve Been A Seeker For Long Enough”.
This additional track is exclusive to this download and is actually an older track from back in the slow-moving early days of Soft Riot; from 2006! This version is a re-arranged and re-recorded version that was done up in the studio in March 2013.
You can listen to the single below or on the Other Voices‘ BandCamp page.

Spotlight [SP. ED]: A New Life / Soft Riot! | INVISIBLE GUYhttp://invisibleguy.wordpress.com/2013/05/06/spotlight-sp-ed-a-new-life-soft-riot/As you listen to Soft Riot, which is a moniker for this UK-based producer, who goes by the name of JJD (Jack Duckworth) – there’s an instant appeal to your own monotonic glory.
Note: The excerpt above has been corrected to state “UK-based” as I was incorrectly referred to as Russian. I’m not Russian but would love to go there some day. =)
FICTION PREDICTION is out late June 2013 on Other Voices and Volar Records in LP, CD, Cassette and Digital format. Each format has a slightly different track listing!
